That's a great point. My personal opinion from the start is I can't see the Canucks getting this A+ package of players, top prospects and 1st round picks for Luongo based on these reasons. It's obvious to any NHL fan that Luongo asked the Canucks for a trade and when that happens the team trading that specifc player they can't get what would be fair market value, just look at what Columbus got for Rick Nash. Now before someone say the Rangers gave up a 1st round pick for him, the one difference I see is he is a lot younger then Luongo and chances are it will be between 25th - 30th overall. With Toronto trading an unprotected 1st round pick there is a risk based on the past few years it could be a top 5 or top 10 pick. Finally Luongo's contract isn't the best when you look at the terms of what's left on it.
