Rights to Raymond**
37th, 40th, 50th, 53rd** picks
** These are only included in deal if Florida elects to give its 2nd round choice to Tampa this year.
Why Vancouver does this:
- Cap space
- Go into draft with 6 top 60 picks to either use to find a few gems (good scouting team) or use as trade bait.
- Get a pick for a contract that wasn't working in the system but would work well somewhere else.
- Luongo gets to go to a team near his family helping Vancouver's PR reputation
Why TB does this:
- Get franchise goalie
-Improve 26th-rated penalty kill with a young forward who also has good potential offense
-keep both top 20 picks in draft.
