I'm not sure how much clearer I can be in explaining this, but I'll take one more stab at it.
Florida trades Nick Bjugstad to Vancouver for Futures/Permission to speak with Luongo. This is allowed as evidence by Toronto obtaining permission to speak with Kripprusoff. The Trade for Futures is obviously just a front.
There are 2 clauses attached to the Nick Bjugstad for Futures trade.
Clause 1. If Vancouver Buys out Luongo, Vancouver must trade Bjugstad back to Florida for a goalie, 1st round pick, cash and futures
Clause 2. If Vancouver does not buy out Luongo, Vancouver must trade Bjudgstad back to Florida for a 7th round pick (essentially, compenstation for speaking with Luongo while under contract with the Canucks)
Luongo and Florida now talk and discuss a potential deal for a contract.
If Luongo accepts a Deal with Florida, bound by Clause 1, Vancouver must trade Bjugstad back to Florida for the package.
If Luongo does not accept a deal with Florida, bound by Clause 2, Vancouver must trade Bjugstad back to Florida for a 7th and Vancouver still has Luongo.
What's the problem here?
