What about this instead:
1. Luongo agrees if he is given a compliance buy out he will sign with Florida. He negotiates this before trade is made.
2. Vancouver releases Luongo
3. Luongo signs with Florida
4. Florida does a lopsided trade to vancouver such as goalie + 1st for $$ and future considerations.
Of course nothing force Florida to do the step 4 and nothing force Luongo to sign with Florida.
I'm not sure why you're under the impression that GM's don't honor their word with other GM's.
I mean if you really want it to be safe for both sides it could look like this
1) Florida trades Nick Bjudstad to Vancouver for Future considerations. (In reality this is for Florida to negotiate with Luongo). Condition #1. If Luongo agrees to deal with Florida, Vancouver trades back Bjudstad to Florida for 1st, and $$ and Futures. Condition #2. If Luongo does not agree to deal with Florida, Vancouver trades back Bjudstad for 7th rounder.
2) Play it out as indicated by the 2 conditions that made the Bjudstad trade valid in the first place.
