With the Cap dropping to 60 mil for the 13/14 season, the emphasis should be acquiring a futures package from any said team acquiring Luongo. The pool needs are still the same, top end talent anywhere but in net and possibly young project scoring prospects. The Wolves could use an infusion of scoring into their lineup.
There are cheaper options than Ballard for the Isles, who are a cash strapped team. If the Islanders are looking for an expensive dman to replace Streit, they'll need an offensive dman, which ballard is not.
