If we were interested in dumping Lu, it would have happened, likely to Florida.

As for the first with one of those three....That's the kind of package I'd be looking at. I listed those three prospects more for if the returning player was lesser then I listed.

As for Heatley, ideally not, but stranger things have happened, and another premium forward, cap hit be damned, is a better return for Luongo then like 90% of what's been offered in these boards.
Fair enough, I can respect that position. From an outsiders prospective, a fair deal between these two teams would be something like Lu for Heatley and a 2nd or 3rd (maybe a 1st really depending on cap structure etc). Minn gets their goalie (a year younger than Backstrom) locked down at a reasonable cap hit, Van gets a 32 year old (year younger than Luongo) sniper that could just clean up in all the open space provided by the twins and on the powerplay.
