Its not like a team is going to go get a 34 year old Luongo..........and then give up roster players which basically defeats the purpose. The whole point is Luongo gives them a chance to win now.

So the only thing a team can give back is prospects and picks. AKA futures.

Nobody has a crystal ball, but it makes common sense.
NYR gave up to top-6 forwards to land Nash...

Common sense is that if you can deal from a position of strength to deal with an area of weakness, you'd do it. According to you every hockey trade would always be roster player for futures, as a team is either contending or rebuilding.
