Kulemin can basically be another Higgins-type player.

Lupul is a bonafide top 6 winger who even if he doesn't match last years production would surely help with our scoring.

Kadri is a borderline blue chip prospect with significant offensive potential.

Sure, we wouldn't be getting an all-star player back, but would you really turn down a package of Kulemin, Kadri, and a 1st or 2nd? Or Lupul and Kulemin?
Personally I think we're trying to win a cup this season, not fill out our roster. We need players that will make our club better in the short term. Kulemin is a one-season wonder at this point, no reason to think he can contribute better than the players we have. Kadri has not proven he can play in the NHL. Lupul is a lazy, soft as butter player and a dressing room cancer.

We're better off keeping Luongo than dealing him to Toronto. There's nobody they will trade us that will help us this season. Gillis must wait for another suitor to emerge.
