Luongo has 1.4 and his value is zero according to some.

Really though, I'd be happy with Franzen on Vancouver, but we're short on youth already, and our better defensemen won't be up for grabs. Ballard+, Sauve and 2nd, or something around Lu would be what we can afford, and frankly that Montreal deal beats the pants off of what I have offered.
