Although I don't think Gillis should hold out for Phil Kessel, it makes most sense for him to hold on to Luongo as an insurance policy if he can't get anything very useful in return as long as Vancouver doesn't run in to cap issues. Very distinct possibility that Luongo will start the season with the Canucks and that Gillis will patiently wait for a team to get desperate. If no team bites for Luongo after the CBA is resolved, I could see Gillis signing Arnott and Schroeder getting a chance to fill in for Kesler until his return.

d. sedin - h. sedin - burrows
raymond - kesler/schroeder - booth
higgins - arnott - hansen
malhotra - lapierre - kassian

Trading Luongo at this point should return an immediate upgrade to 3C or top 6 W (upgrade over Raymond/Higgins - no tweeners) as well as a solid futures asset.
