Of course we don't.

All that's happen is.

1. Likely the cap will come down by as much as 10 million leaving you guys with as much $10 million over cap. You could then use amnesty on Ballard but that still wouldn't cover all of it.

2. You've signed the Schneider for 3 more years @ $4 million a season.(not back up money) Leaving you guys with $9.3 million tied up in two goalies.

3. Luongo has said he has no desire to stay if he's not the #1

4. Massive contract(term wise) with still roughly $43 million owed to him over the next 7 years.

5. Other supposed competitors for Luongo don't have the financial wherewithal to afford nearly $7 million a season for the next 6 seasons.

So ya no leverage at all.
