But there have been no goalies as good as Luongo traded, or even available, in the last 10 years. So none of your examples are analogous either.

Not all the returns for goalies have been that low either. Someone already gave a list of examples earlier (Varlamov, Toskala, etc). None of the goalies were even close to Luongo's level, and several garnered high picks and prospects.
