And Lou is also a sure bet to carry a 5.3 cap hit no matter how you slice it, combine that with the possibility of him only playing a few years, and potentially not being to the high standard he has played in the past is something many Nucks fans refuse to acknowledge. With the cap going down, no possibilities of hiding these cap hits, teams have to be very cap conscience moving forward. Based on some posters suggesting he may only play a few years, Leafs would be better served getting Thomas. .
