I don't really find those to be options on anywhere near Luongo's level. Kipper is one of the reasons Flames are not anywhere near a playoff position despite otherwise solid play. Miller is a decent goalie, but I think everyone can tell he's not a top tier starter but he's paid like one. Not much younger than Luongo either. Bernier and Bishop are not an answer if you need help now.

The point is, when it's a trade deadline and playoffs are on the line, sometimes deals get made that otherwise make little sense at any other time of the year. Even having 2 teams interested means you can pit those two teams against each other, one of them just might be desperate enough. Would anyone give up a 1st for Paul Gaustad outside of the trade deadline? No, never.
