What were you thinking in sending a player back? If value is good then we need to upgrade a piece in order for us to send someone. I think Raymond would be the player we would send the other way. In this case salary might be an issue for you because you are taking Luongo and Raymond, we can add Lombardi as a cap dump to our takings. By adding Raymond and taking cap dump value has become unbalanced. So I suggest swapping Kulemin for Bozak. This way you preserve stronger center depth and realistically Bozak is more valuable currently than Kulemin because he fills a bigger need (top 6 C). Also Raymond fills Kulemin's 3rd line winger role and leaves no holes, unlike taking Bozak which may leave hole in top 6 C. Vancouver takes 6.3 million in salary and Toronto takes 7.5 million. Only a net 1.2 million on books compared to 3.8 million in previous offer. I know that Kulemin is a piece that you did want to move with Kadri, but if you look at what we did with adding value and cap dump to deal it balances. Also team looks more complete.

Previous Agreed Offer

Vancouver
Bozak 1.5
Kadri
Colbourne
Blacker

Toronto
Luongo 5.3

5.3-1.5= net 3.8mil extra for Toronto

Lupul - Grabovski - Kessel
JVR - Connolly - MacArthur
Kulemin - Lombardi - Frattin
Steckel - Mclement - Brown

Gardiner - Phaneuf
Gunnarson - Liles
Holzer - Komasarek
(Reilly if called up)

Luongo
Reimer

New Offer

Changes:
Swap Bozak for Kulemin
Add Lombardi
Add Raymond

Value
Kulemin = Bozak + Raymond - Lombardi (remember when you subtract negative it becomes a positive)

Vancouver
Lombardi 3.5
Kulemin 2.8
Kadri
Colbourne
Blacker
6.3

Toronto
Luongo 5.3
Raymond 2.275
7.5

7.5-6.3=1.2 net difference for Toronto

New offer has savings of 3.8-1.2= 2.6milion cap space

Lupul - Bozak - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - MacArthur
Raymond - Connolly - Frattin
Steckel - Mclement - Brown

Gardiner - Phaneuf
Gunnarson - Liles
Holzer - Komasarek
(Reilly if called up)

Luongo
Reimer

Pretty solid lineup.
