And know one pays there 6/7 defenceman 4.5 million. But hey sometimes things like this happens. Vancouver has Ballard at 4.2 and he is the #5. Every team has a couple of overpaid players, or is overspending at a certain position. The teams that turn these problems around win the cup. The situation dictates that Vancouver does not need to trade, because there is other player we are targeting that will use the space. This can also be referred to as opportunity cost in business terms. Right now Vancouvers opportunity cost is zero since there is no one to fill the cap space. If there is a trade for Luongo then Vancouver can fill this cap space with pieces coming back in the trade.
