Vancouver offered Luongo for Scrivens + two 2nd rounders.

If you're only getting a couple of picks, there's no positive effect to this season by trading him. If anything, having him there to back up Schneids is better.
"a huge boon for the team's offseason fortunes" - could you elaborate on this point a bit? I'm confused what you mean here. Schneider is a great goalie and an understandable choice for the Canucks going forward..
"he still felt that he could demand a high price for him" - in a shortened season like this one, there are so many teams that are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. Gillis had a set price in mind and other teams would not succumb to this demand because of the uncertainty surrounding each team's standing in their respective conference.
I wanted Lu to be traded (really wanted to see him turn it around this season in Tampa Bay.. perfect environment for him), but we'll just have to wait.
