Regardless, what do you think about: Bozak, Finn, Colborne + 2nd for Roberto?

I believe that's fair, IMO.
Most importantly, trading market for Iginla/Sundin was most likely larger (IMO, will dig up articles) than the current market for Luongo. Doesn't make much sense to compare a forward with a goaltender IMO. 'nucks will still get a decent deal, but not to the expectations of the fans who compare him with elite forwards.
