The other teams that are in the mix, like Toronto, I feel just don't have the assets the our team needs right now, which is a second line center - with Kesler being sidelined and all. The players that they are only willing to give up, such as Bozak, Frattin, Ashton, etc. are just not the answer to our offense. We already have guys like Shroeder, Jensen, and Kassian in the mix. As for our defense, I feel that we are already strong enough, and with young guns of Tanev, Connauton, and Corrado, we are fine there.
The other teams, such as Chicago, Edmonton, and Islanders, are simply to the prime trading partners, with Edmonton obviously being in our division. I would only trade Luo to Chicago if they were willing to give us Sharp+ in return, which is most likely just not happening. As for the Islanders, I just don't see Luo wanting to go there, plus they would have to buyout Dipietro's massive contract, and give up a young gun, like Nino Niederreiter, in order to land Luongo.
So my proposal for Florida is something along the lines like this:
C Stephen Weiss
2013 1st rounder
G Roberto Luongo
F Mason Raymond
D Kevin Connauton
Be NICE PLEASE, and comment on what you would do differently if you feel this isn't fair!
