While I agree with him that a deal without an impact player shouldn't really be considered, I can still appreciate the value involved in that package, it's just that Luongo's value has been diluted into a number of pieces that don't do much for us. So if it were one such "impact player" + one of those pieces as a throw in, that would be fine. But quantity for quality usually doesn't get a deal done.
When I see a proposal like that, I see a bunch of players who I wouldn't mind having but as secondary pieces to a trade. Any deal involving Luongo needs to be built around an impact piece, otherwise I really don't see any incentive to move Luongo to Toronto.
