IMO this is the biggest reason why Tallon is holding back. Sure Luongo is a upgrade now, but when you think about the situation long term is it worth it? Lu is making $6,714,000 a year until 2018 for a total of $40,284,000. While his caphit is lower than that, it will still take a massive hit on the team budget.

Tallon really has to ask himself, is it worth to risk long term succees and signing the kids & UFAs in the future for immediate succees. We all know what happened to the Hawks after their cup run and while Tallon wasn't with Hawks any more at that time, I bet he still learned his lesson about it.

IMO it's more probable that Tallon trades for Niemi if he's looking for a number 1 guy in the near future. Another player that he has a history with and could be on the way out from San Jose.
