They could use Raymond, but i don't see them giving a sweetheart deal to obtain a player they don't really need (Luongo). Then, when names like Bjugstad,Gudbranson or Kulikov come up....that kills it further.
- Is FLA a playoff team going forward?
- I think you are incorrect about FLA's money situation. Opendoor posted about FLA's arena deal and what FLA is collecting outside their HRR -- It's significant. Take a look at his post.
- Tallon got the OK to accept the contract so point is moot.
- Need will be apparent as the season progresses, if there is one.
Also, from the last thread response to you: I was talking about the 2013 1st rnder, not the 2012 5th overall pick.
