I agree Ballard and Luongo have limited market appeal, so much that it may make more sense to keep them.

The whole NHL landscape will be much altered soon, so if there is urgency in making a trade it is unrealistic to expect significant return. Gillis denies this, though and has said he won't be doing any fire sales. Based on this and his track record at the deadline, I wonder if he doesn't stand pat and attempt to wring a last run out of this group?
Personally I feel Luongo has to be moved, I think it'll be a huge distraction if Luongo and Schneider are a duo for a prolonged period of time, + Luongo has let it known he wants out.
