The biggest problem for Ottawa is similar to what St. Louis had, that being that they feel the need to move Bishop because they have 2 other good goalies and other teams know this.
on the other hand, the goalie market at the moment is:
1. Luongo
2. Bishop
3. Someone that isnt good enough to be a backup on their current team.

as long as vancouver keeps demanding the moon, bishop has value. Personally, i think they could cash him in for a 2nd right now (and keep in mind, ottawa traded a 2013 2nd for him, so they'd be essentially getting those 10 games last year for free). Ottawa doesnt want a 2nd though. They want a dman who can play now. I expect them to wait this out and hope that someone's goalie problems fit our need (hey phoenix, i hear you have a lot of defensemen, eh?).

I dont think nonis is the type of gm who would acquire luongo just to trade him back to vancouver's divison. Certainly not the way to make friends with other GM's.
