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.
Any team could decide "Hey, our goaltending with Holtby/Lindback/Crawford/Dubnyk/etc has been terrible. If we gave up Johansson/Malone/Hemsky/etc + throw in for a huge upgrade in goal, we would be a much better team."
And that's all it boils down to. A trade that makes both teams better. I don't expect Luongo to garner as much as Nash did. But the premise of making a deal to benefit both teams remains.
