If there's only one team interested in taking on Luongo, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that team isn't going to start parting with core players.
Kadri should probably be available, as he's an expendable piece for the Leafs.
I wouldn't confuse "fair value" and "market value/perceived value". There's a difference.
You're right _if_ there's only one team. But past speculation and now the flexibility provided in the new CBA, ensure that won't be the case. But let's see...
If Florida's willing to trade Weiss, you should absolutely send him there. However, with Jose Theodore, Scott Clemmensen, Jacob Markstrom, and Weiss being basically the face of their franchise, that seems unlikely, at best.
All comes down to if they feel he can be re-signed long-term. Especially when he will not negotiate during the season. Can they take the chance of letting him walk when they could get a premier player back? Theodore is also walking at the end of the year (most likely). It seems like an opportunity to get a signed, high end athlete for soon to be departing assets. That's if they don't want to risk Weiss walking, of course...
