You are missing what he suggested.
FIRST: A player CAN NOT Re-sign with the same team that gave him a compliance buyout for one season.
A side deal is set up.
1. Luongo agrees if he is given a compliance buy out he will sign with Florida. He negotiates this before trade is made.
1. Florida does a lopsided trade to vancouver such as goalie + 1st for $$ and future considerations.
3. Vancouver releases Luongo
4. Luongo signs with Florida
