Better to give up those assets on other positions instead of another top young goaltender.
You make some good points but having two basically rookie goaltenders is exactly what we did with JQ and JB and it worked out great. In a best situation Fla could end up right where we are in regards to the netminding.

I am not saying a perfect fit and they are likely a long shot but I wouldn't rule them out.

Its like CBJ going after Bobrov, it doesn't mean that they wouldn't want a potential significant upgrade in JB as well.
