Not logical.
There was absolutely no reason to accept Toronto's offer at this point in time. None of those assets help Vancouver win this year (vs keeping Luongo). That type of trade is one that would happen on draft day.

But Vancouver absolutely MUST trade Luongo (or someone else with a high cap hit) this summer due to their cap situation. The logical person to move is Lu. Perhaps there's more of a market for him then (I don't think so... but who knows). But I doubt anyone will be giving up much more than what Toronto offered.
