The "60 million cap" argument isn't a for sure thing, one, and two, looking back, it was like a 41.7 million dollar cap we had running with a 6.75 Luongo and even the cheapest of cheap goalies made that 7.25 at the time. 7.25/41.7 is more then 9.33/60. In fact, that's 2 percent cheaper, for two much, much better talents filling the role of back up and starter, then just one starter and who ever happens to need a job. We won a few playoff series with that structure the same as Philly or Ottawa or any other team that hasn't won yet. I mean our goalies would be making (conceivably) less then Ovechkin for two high level talents, yet no one is saying Ovechkin needs to go...because he's a top 3 or 4 player in the game.
