This isn't an indictment of Luongo as a hockey player. He is a good goalie and should have at least four more good years in him. It's just a reflection of how ugly that contract is with a shrinking cap and changed rules for cap hits in case of retirement.
I don't think it's Luongo having zero value, it's that Gillis wants to make a hockey trade and teams aren't willing to do that, they're willing to take that contract off their hands but Vancouver has to take something back too with a draft pick or two and not a hockey deal.
