I really can't say I have a good idea of what Luongo's trade value is or will end up being. Or even if he will get traded. Anything could happen.

But some people here need to realize if a trade gets done you're not just trading Luongo. You're trading his contract as well. As a Leaf fan I want Luongo the player. I don't want Luongo the contract.

If Luongo was a UFA, and he cost nothing but money, there isn't a team in the league that would give him the contract he has now.

So, if I'm a GM, I'm not giving up significant assets for the privilege of picking up a contract I wouldn't have given him in the first place.
