What makes you think Luongo should return more than he did?
You answered your own question. The GM who traded Roy was a complete moron. Gillis is not.
Also, assuming that GM's are rational, wouldn't a GM look at what Colorado did after acquiring Roy and hit themselves for not beating Colorado's offer. I'm in no way equating Luongo with Roy but it looks to me that a solid goalie should get a good return.
