I see your point, but don't players want to play for a good team rather than a bad one, or is it more about the ice time, and possibly money?
It's definitely about ice-time first, especially for a position like goaltending where there's only 30 starters and 30 backups (obviously sometimes goalies split the starting duty).

As for Emery, nobody even knows if he'll play again or if he'll even be as good. Certainly less of a competition than Luongo.
