Don't really see how holding onto Luongo until the point he is forced to trade him improves his position. If anything, options will dissapear as next year's cap crunch approaches.
True. But again, if the risk is that you lose out on a Tyler Boak type player then it's a low risk to wait. Best case, another team in the playoff hunt needs a goalie. Worst case you miss out on Bozak and trade him for nothing.
