Now, I'm not asking for the moon. Lupul(upcoming UFA), Bozak(upcoming UFA), and a first guaranteed to be in the lower half of the order seems like fair value to me.
The thing is there is no guarantee of where the 1st round pick would end up. I admit today I was wrong about this but after Burke made the Kessel trade I didn't think Boston would have got the 2nd overall pick in 2010. So that's why I want a 1st round pick from Toronto to be conditional that they make the Playoffs. If Canucks fans think Luongo can get the Maple Leafs into the Playoffs then you should have no problem accepting that.
