It does not matter a single iota what the fan bases value Roberto Luongo's trade price point at. It is not "real" it is fantasy trading with posters who have very skewed visions of reality.
There are only 30 real GM's who have a far better grip on the situation. They for the most part are trying to put a winning and entertaining product on the ice. They have to account for the on ice product as well as the intangibles such as marketing and sometimes stroking their owners egos.
Tallon has apparently met face to face with Luongo and there is enough smoke in Toronto to suggest there is a fire there. That sounds like a market place to me. Who knows what the other 27 opinions that actually matter are thinking...
If any one of them were to really try to ice a pathetic line up in order to compete in 5 or more years then they ought to be fired. Sometimes the window for a team waiting for one never comes.
Winning now is the single most important step a team can do to ensure long term success. It is infectious and leads to future prosperity.
