Another point to consider is once the season starts and 1 to 10 of the leagues teams start to suck and fail to meet the expectations how do you think the trade will happen...

I would say that the salaries and cap hits would have to equal out and the team that is under performing will have to trade one or two of their even more high profile players to achieve this. Now why would the Canucks take on these underachievers... Top prospects and Draft pickS would be the incentive.

It's a race to the finish line and if you stop to gaze at your navel for more than a minute you will be left in the dust.

Luongo can make the difference for a team on the bubble making the playoffs or not. And if he goes to a team in the East he makes it just that much more difficult for another team in the East to make the playoffs for the next 5 to 7 years.
