Indeed. His value is affected in a negative fashion because of his declining ability, whether he's unable to win back a starting position or hold down the fort in the playoffs, it will be reflected in whatever return the Canucks get for him.

Roberto Luongo was one of the main reasons for the Canucks being embarrassed last spring. Whoever acquires him will have to have that in mind when negotiating value. The fact that Roberto, a veteran of the NHL, was placed on the bench with the season on the line, in favour of a goalie who hasn't even played a whole lot in the league, says a lot.

The Canucks don't have a lot of confidence in him being able to carry their team.
