When he was traded from the Panthers to the Canucks I would say he was a top 5 goalie and worth a valuable asset. However back then the Canucks gave up Todd Bertuzzi, Bryan Allen and Alex Auld. Now I think it's fair to say the only big name player besides Luongo was Bertuzzi, however that was after the Steve Moore incident and I think he needed a change to play somewhere else. Plus the Panthers didn't even get a 1st round pick.

Today Luongo is 33 years old and is signed to a much worse contract compared to the last time he was traded. He might still be a very good Goalie, however he is not worth what Gillis wants.
