And remember, if you read my whole post, the cap will be a problem for Vancouver if they plan on IMPROVING their team. Sure they can dump guys and replace them with rookies but that doesn't make them better.
Neither does dumping Luongo for scraps.

For the umpteenth time, we're all okay with trading Luongo as long as we end up a better team. So that means a top-6 forward would almost have to be included, or a very strong futures package that could be flipped for a forward at the deadline.

Gillis won't trade Luongo unless it improves the team. Any other GM would be willing to give up as much for Luongo as Luongo would be an improvement to their team. Therefore the return would be somewhere between the least value that would make us better than having Luongo, and the most each team could give up for Luongo without making them worse off.
