Luongo to Toronto for what?

The draft week sure was exciting wasnt it? The entire media had everyone so focused on Luongo, Nash , Yandle and the Oilers #1 pick that we were totally blindsided by the Staal, Ribiero, JVR and even the Gustafsson trades. Early in the day we had plenty of updates pointing at Luongo's move to the big city in the East. That Gillis and Burke had been openly having secret meetings at restaurants frequented by Pierre McGuire and that both sides were inching closer and closer.

And then I saw this tweet:

and I thought to myself: "What do the Canucks need from Toronto?"

and after Toronto made their 4th overall pick I thought, "Nothing that Brian Burke would give up"

MIke Gillis and Brian Burke have similar problems in trying to move a franchise goaltender to Toronto.

1) They both live in hockey mad markets - The public pressure on both of these teams is enormous. This trade could set up both franchises as top cup contenders for years to come. It would guarantee that Toronto makes the playoffs next year and could be considered the final piece of the puzzle for them. It is believed that Vancouver's window to win is closing and would need the assets in return that would help them to win now.

2) What is Roberto Luongo worth? Perhaps the more important question is: What does Toronto have that will help Vancouver now, but not hurt Toronto's playoff chances, and could be considered fair value for Roberto Luongo?

Basic Poll Bellow, add more details in the comments.
