It's a lot easier for Florida to say "suit yourselves, we have Markstrom" then it is for Toronto to say "we have Scrivens". Not to mention Toronto is generally more pressured to succeed. Losing Lupul and adding Luongo(taking into account the addition of JVR as well) would make Toronto a much better team for the forseeable future.
Again, if our choice was solid prospect, decent prospect, 1st, or keep Luongo indefinitely, I'd take it. But Toronto does have the ability to give up a top-6 forward(Lupul or JVR[Especially if Schenn was offered for Luongo]), and we are perfectly within our right to ask for one as a centrepiece.
Giving up Lupul is tough...not impossible but tough. It's when some want to add our 1st or one of our top prospects were it becomes a nogo.
