I think the return will be a lot less than some believe. Toronto is not hard up for him since they don't have a good enough team to warrant such a move. Florida? Wsh? Other than Florida, is there another team that will take the contract?
I was going to respond, but Y2k beat me to it.

Luongo has been one of the best goalies in the NHL this season. We're perfectly happy to keep him.
Luongo has an excellent international resume...saying it any other way is an outright fallacy.

Canucks don't get to game 7 without Luongo in net period, end of discussion. 8 goals scored in 7 games....
