We can even add Raymond to sweeten the deal and add to Florida's offensive depth. I don't care what anyone says, he would be a useful player to them. Florida has to be willing to let go of more than a B grade prospect (not talking about HF boards ratings). That is what would hold up any deal. Who knows what has been going on the last 3 months or the next 3 will hold for any number of reasons.
I'm not advocating a TO only deal here, in fact, i've come to the beleaf that it would be impossible. BUT, the only team a FLA/VAN trade makes sense for is VAN/Luongo. Lu would be an upgrade for sure, but FLA were a playoff team with their goalies. They are also a team that isn't flushed with cash so Luongo's higher salary than cap deal isn't good for them. They could use Raymond, but i don't see them giving a sweetheart deal to obtain a player they don't really need (Luongo). Then, when names like Bjugstad,Gudbranson or Kulikov come up....that kills it further.
