The Toronto Maple Leafs remain in the hunt for Luongo, but do not presently seem interested in parting with center Tyler Bozak, prospect Nazim Kadri and defenseman Carl Gunnarsson as part of a package.
Gillis, while speaking to Vancouver sports radio station The Team 1040 this afternoon, indicated that he's still talking but admitted that he does not have a specific price on Luongo.

"Fair value is different for every team that you speak to because they have different players, they have different concerns and different contractual issues that play into what they have available that you might want," he said.

It has been widely speculated that the general asking price for Luongo is too high, but Gillis revealed that such a rumor was spread around by "a team that was extremely interested in Roberto and were using every means possible to try and force us to do something that we didn't think was right."
