With Kesler down, wouldn't a fantastic goalie tandem help the team more then Bozak? Also there is always the trade deadline. No need to rush this thing, unless of course Toronto is by some miracle giving up a kings ransom.

He effectively has a $2M cap hit for bought outs players RIGHT NOW.... I don't think in 7 years it will matter much considering the cap at that time will likely be $80-90M.
This is something that many people overlook. 2mil per season for a couple years won't mean as much 10 years down the road. Plus, it's far from a certainty that Lu retires before his contract is up anyways (ie: Roloson).
