Personally, I do not feel they would have much interest in Luongo under a sixty million cap though. Dubnyk is good enough for a team that is essentially at their "trial by error" stage of a rebuild. Not to mention they need to see what they have in defense. If those prospects do not live up to expectations, than addressing it serves a much greater priority than goaltending.

In addition, no one is factoring in the future raises for Schultz, Yakupov and RNH. Low cap or not, you are not getting them under 5-6 million.
In my 1st post i had RNH at 6 mil (equal to Hall/Eberle) and Schultz at 5 mil (low end). Yak will need to show what he has, but if he is close to the other big 3, it will be 6 mil as well.
