It will be the same for Luongo. A 1st + good prospect + 3C is not out of line for his value, not matter how it is spun here.
Burke got his return. Before the Kaberle trade, Burke stated that a deal will be made if he got an offer that "knocked his socks off." As of this moment, he's stated that he will go into next season with Reimer/Scrivens unless he can upgrade the goaltending position at a reasonable price. I don't think that reasonable price includes trading one of his top 10 picks (Kadri) alongside another 1st round pick.
