Once again, normally I'd agree but given the Canuck's scenario with Schneider emerging, and Luongo stating that it's time to move on, we have a somewhat forced hand.
And how is his value going to increase the longer we hold on to him, if the cap is lowered and him only getting older? Maybe for part of a season (if a team like Philly struggles with goaltending), but any longer and his value declines IMO.
