For example I would love Chris Stewart, Jake Allen and a 1st for Lundqvist. However I don't think STL bites on that.
St. Louis isn't a good match. But since you wanted to use Luongo as a comparison you can look at the return FLA got for him when he was a UFA and then compare him at that point in his career to Lundqvist now and decide who has more value. They got Bertuzzi who was already 31 but still producing well, Bryan Allen a former 4th overall pick, and Alex Auld who at the time many thought would be a starter in the NHL and thought he was a lock to start for FLA until they signed Belfour and he assaulted Auld.
