Theoretically Trading Lundqvist

The one hiccup with trading Lundqvist is his cap hit. Yes, he's an elite goalie. Yes, he's world-class. The issue is that he carries a 6.875M cap hit. If he was making something closer to what Luongo is making (5.333M) he would fetch a hell of a lot more (then again, Luongo has one of those lifetime contracts).
Realistically, with the way the goalie market is, I would see us getting a 1st, 2nd, and a top-6 F or top-4 D, and I don't think that's worth it. Biron is almost 40, and none of our goalie prospects look ready for full-time NHL duty (CJ didn't look terrible, and Talbot didn't look bad in preseason). There's also the factor of the fans rioting (figuratively) when they hear, demanding Sather's head. Would be interesting...
