Assuming you've re-signed Edler + Higgins + Lapierre of course.
Honestly, why would anyone bother doing that? Right now they are negotiating based on a multi-year transitional period. Also, $60M is less than if the cap dropped to 50% without any transitional years. It could be argued the cap will never drop below $70M...at least that's the idea of the transitional years + estimated growth in the league.

I do think that eventually one of Luongo or Schneider will need to be traded but I don't think it'll need to be this year (if there is a year) or even next. I think that as soon as Schneider can prove he's capable of being a starter at the NHL level one of the guys will be traded but until then, I wouldn't trade Luongo.
