Luongo HAS trade value?!?!
No fucking shit.
From people suggesting we should waive him, to reporters and bloggers concerned over his trade value, the pundits in the "know" have now vindicated what was already obvious in my mind.
The Canucks could trade Luongo on the first day the trade freeze lifts, and it will include a nice return.
Personally, I've maintained we should find a way to keep both goalies, whether that happens or not is unclear.

Tampa wont trade Hedman, he is likely next to Stamkos on their untouchable list.
Lots of forward depth and a good prospect pool on that team, they will put together an offer built around those assets.
We would be giving up one of the top goaltenders in the league. It could quite possibly put Tampa over the top and gain that sought after playoff round. I think it will be given very serious consideration. I don't see MG trading away an asset like Luo or Schneider for a bag full of promises that might never materialize. This isn't Nonis or Burke giving up the farm for somebody who used to do, it's Mike Gillis and so far, IMHO, he seems to know what he is doing. If either one goes it will be for a solid top 3 forward or a top 2 D.

It's hard not to think about Nash and get excited. He has a jumbo contract I know but maybe playing for a team like VCR could ignite something inside...
Luo going to Columbus I can't see though. Why would he? I'm just wondering if there's any way that goes down....

You can take that to the bank.
Agreed, the only logical destination would be Tampa Bay.
