If Markstrom plays well there is no market in Fla for Lu.

The assumption is that he ends up in FLA. However, if push comes to shove and Gillis can't get a bare minimum package (acceptable to him) from FLA, then Luongo will have to expand his wish list to near any team. That's when FLA won't matter anymore. But as of right now, Luongo and Gillis are going to do what they can to get him to FLA because they have the time to see.

It's not set in stone though. Saying that, with the way TOR is choosing to play this, it's unlikely he ever ends up there, even as a remote possibility.
