So what I don't understand is if Toronto is looking to start trending up(and attract high profile UFAs), then they should be willing to send strong futures package(including pieces like Kadri, 1st, and Finn).

If they aren't and are only interested in Luongo simply for the sake of providing mentorship to any young goalies like Reimer or Rynnas, as well as allowing the youngsters to develop better by not having to worry about a goaltender causing every mistake they make to become a goal, then a player like Lupul should be expendable, as he doesn't fit in with the age of the core, and it makes sense to sell on him while his value is high.

A package made up of a medley of 'meh' players and 'meh' futures makes no sense for either side whichever direction the Leafs take.
