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.
According to you, a 28 year old Nash as a forward is the same thing as a 33 year old Luongo wiht a 10 year contract.

Rangers didnt NEED to get Nash. They added to their already contending lineup that almost won the presidents trophy.

A team would NEED Luongo in order to go trade for him. Goaltending is a different situation.

Your comparison of the two trades is not comparable.
