I don't think there's a team in contention looking for a starting goalie, and non playoff teams won't be looking to add a 36 year old starting goalie, especially at the cost of a decent roster player, good prospect and a 1st. And if there's a team that's a goalie away from contending, I'm sure Luongo will be a higher priority.
I'm not sure about Bouwmeester, I haven't really seen him play much, but I have a good enough idea that he's not worth a top prospect, decent roster player and a 1st.
I do think Iginla can get you a similar return, maybe not what you want, but I can see him going for a 1st and a top prospect.
If you consider Tampa a team in contention then you could make the case that they'd take on an old goalie and slowly phase Lindback in.
