Of course, no guarantees as to Reimer's success at this point (which is what generates the willingness to commit dollars, years, and some assets to Luongo), but if you trade for Luongo, you help ensure he doesn't succeed, and there is a cap to just how much we're prepared to part with in terms of assets to do that.
My Custom Lineup
James Van Riemsdyk ($4.250m) / Ryan Getzlaf ($5.325m) / Phil Kessel ($5.400m)
Nazem Kadri ($1.720m) / Mikhail Grabovski ($5.500m) / Nikolai Kulemin ($2.800m)
Clarke MacArthur ($3.250m) / Tyler Bozak ($1.500m) / Matt Frattin ($0.925m)
Colton Orr ($1.000m) / Jay McClement ($1.500m) / Carter Ashton ($1.040m)
Jake Gardiner ($1.117m) / Dion Phaneuf ($6.500m)
Carl Gunnarsson ($1.325m) / John-Michael Liles ($3.875m)
Korbinian Holzer ($0.575m) / Morgan Rielly ($1.775m)
Roberto Luongo ($5.333m)
James Reimer ($1.800m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $56,510,000; BONUSES: $2,112,500
CAP SPACE (20-man roster): $13,690,000

Getzlaf might sign for a 1-1.5 mil more, but if you keep Macarthur it's likely he gets a paycut too. Still, fits rather well under the cap.
