They arguable become a worse team with Luongo if they lose a key part (for their team) of their line-up

I understand to core problem of what I'm looking for, but I still would be wanting an improvement at one position or another back.

In every other instance, we wouldn't be looking at futures. Liles/MacArthur/Kulemin/Gunnarsson/Bozak or Kadri/Biggs/Blacker/Colborne/Ashton/Finn would be additions to another, larger core piece.

One of the Pronger deals (Lupul, Sbisa and 2 firsts + a conditional pick or Lupul, Smid, two firsts and a second, his age 31 and 34 respectively) is what I'd want to see as a template.

I just don't feel Toronto, or Florida for that matter, is a real fit.
