You can't trade someone that is not under contract
Actually, you can trade his rights in the receiving end team hoping to sign him long term perhaps. We signed him for one year, IMO lowering his value.

And you can trade someone not under contract, the whole Luongo deal happened BECAUSE he had no contract. And I don't think Vancouver would've been as interested if Luongo signed a one year deal with Florida before the trade, just like Chicago wouldn't of been as interested if Havlat signed a one year deal with Ottawa before the trade.
