I agree, let's hope we get a good player. However, we got to be realistic and Luongo holds a little bit of negative value because of his contract.
Yes, Luongo isn't worth a goalie with similar skill but is 25 years old and signed for 5 years.
I know we need a top 6 forward.
I have not disagreed with you yet, except on the value of Heatley.
He is not worth Phaneuf, he is not worth Luongo.

St. Louis is another team that needs a left handed top 4 d-man, and they have a bunch of good top 6 forwards (who aren't on the decline and severely overpaid) and two very good prospects who might be NHL ready.
There are much better options out there for a 3-way trade.
