Ohlund took a hometown discount last time, I assume he will do so again.
Luongo, actually all goalies, will not be making 7-8 Million dollars.

The only player on that team who should be moved, because they are overpaid and not very good, is Kevin "HFBoards most overrated player" Bieksa.
Luongo already makes 6.75 per year, and you think a 250,000 raise is completely out of the question?

Give your head a shake, if Luongo has a good year next year, I can easily see a team throwing a 10 million dollar offer at him.
