Well sure, but Larsson and Henrique aren't going anywhere. Certainly not for Luongo. You seem to think we undervalue Luongo, but I think you are over value him. Especially if your suggestions of going after Stamkos are honest. The last time Luongo was traded he fetched a damaged Todd Bertuzzi, a promising, hard-hitting D-man, and a 1B/backup goalie. It's now 6 years later. Do you see Luongo being traded for the best scorer in the league?
The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle, but my guess for Luongo would be a 50-60 point (top-6) forward and a high draft choice, or a 2-3 defender and a high draft choice. I dont think we'll be getting a young, potential HHOF (Stamkos) or a potential no.1 D-man (Larsson) for him.
Parise would be great to score in free agency, and we might have some sway with the American Connection, but I'm thinking someone will offer him more $$$ than we will.
