If this was a salary dump in order for us to be the lowest payroll team in the league again, my guess is at least 2 of Weber/Suter/Rinne will bolt. If this was a move to truly add more salary (not just more $ to Weber), then it will look a little better to our players questioning Poile & mgmt's ability to improve the team.
How long do you think the window was to potentially move Lombardi when the team thought there was little/no chance of him playing?
