I'd add, who is

No need to marry Luongo off to the only undesirable man currently available in the village (or group of undesirable men), for one goat (or whatever scraps of animals they are prepared to dump in return for his hand)... Luongo's a princess... He deserves better...
Over the years, how many examples are there of star goaltenders (1) being available, (2) not being
to move, and (3) being
with staying put?
The trump card in all of this is that Luongo doesn't
to move... It's a unique situation, and one that I imagine is difficult for outsiders to understand... Of course, they will reply that Luongo is just saying that, Canucks can't afford that, etc... because it's how the world can continue making sense to them...
Luongo feels it's best for a new start, in a situation
than his Vancouver situation (which is difficult to find, IMO)... It's a team full of friends, in a city he really likes, who are competitive for the cup... Florida is the only better choice right now (for family reasons, albeit, Florida doesn't need a #1 right now either, and are probably farther away from a cup)... Other than Florida, Vancouver is
a good choice to play in... until a better than Vancouver or Florida situation presents itself (unless, Florida opens up and needs Luongo very much, ASAP... or Vancouver opens up and needs Luongo very much, ASAP - making Luongo no longer available)...
It's not only what price other teams are prepared to pay, to get Luongo... It's
what price other teams are prepared to pay, to convince Gillis it's time to trade Luongo...
the reality of the market... Luongo doesn't
to be traded...
