Conks is not a problem for next year as his salary is up by then and the option is the teams. They wont take the option. But they will have to send a goalie to FLA and that will probably be Jussi.

The thing would be to get Luongo to a 5 year contract lets say. Then you have him tied up and the back end is solid for years with Prongs there as well. Up front the team is young so we could make severl cup drives.

To Edmonton : Luongo
To Florida : Torres, Staios, Cogliano, Morrison, Edmonton 2nd rounder ( 2006 )

From an Edmonton POV, we get an absolutely legitimate, NHL-quality. top 3 in the league, goalie. Without completely decimating the team to do so.

From a Florida POV, they get the stay-at-home top 4 d-man that every team wants, the 2nd leading goal scorer on Edmonton, Edmonton's best goalie prospect, plus Cogliano and a 2nd rounder. Something for now, and a little something down the road.

I know both sides will think that they're over-paying, but as an obvious Edmonton fan, I do this trade with the thought that we have great NHL depth at D, decent hands at F, and Schremp making an apprearance next year.

Any thoughts ?

Cheers,

As an Oiler fan, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I think Keenan's higher on Smith than Staios; if he is, I'd do that too. And if they wanted Dubnyk or Druin-Deslauriers, Florida can have that too.

Losing Torres would suck as I think he's going to be an excellent winger in this league for years to come. I think Floridians would love him, playing with Weiss or Jokinen in the middle, and Horton or Stewart on the outside. For the next five years, they could look like

Torres/Jokinen/Horton
Olesz/Weiss/Stewart

Plus Kennal McCardell and Andrew Cogliano waiting in the wings? There's your beast of the SouthEast. Plus Smith or Staios could really help mentor Bouwmeester and Metzi.

But would Florida do it? I wouldn't trade Luongo if I had any other choice in the matter. That said, it's hard to imagine getting much more value than that - a solid NHL defensman, a young sniper with high upside, and a couple top notch prospects. It would be nicer for them to have a slightly better goalie or goalie prospect going their way though. If I were Keenan, I'd also be pretty confident I could turn that 2nd rounder into a 1st and a 4th too and maybe finangle another decent prospect out of the deal.

To Edmonton : Luongo, 4th
To Florida : Torres, Smith, Cogliano, Morrison, Dubnyk, Gilbert, Edmonton 1st rounder( 2006), 5th

That's getting a little too pricey I'd rather just flip Keenan the bird and hand Luongo an offer sheet. What's the max RFA compensation now? still 5 1st rounders?

Yeah, but Florida would just match it and Luongo would be forced to play for them - or demand a trade and then we're in a similar boat, but we've broken the "rule" about signing RFAs.
