Vancouver offered Luongo for Scrivens + two 2nd rounders.

The term remaining on Luongo's contract is incredibly unattractive.. Apparently you're among the few who can't grasp that.
I can grasp the fact that Luongo's term is incredibly unattractive. However, that does NOT destroy his value. Luongo + 7th for a 7th is a joke. Scott Gomez got traded with 5 years left on his 7.375 M contract for Ryan McDonagh (in 2009-2010 with a salary cap at 56.8M, incredibly lower than this year's cap). Gomez still had 36.875M left on his remaining contract over a shorter term, and still managed to get traded for a B+ prospect at the time, who's now a solid #2 defenseman. To believe that Luongo truly has no trade value is extremely childish.
