why not do a 3 team deal that works for all. Lou for Theodore or Clemmensen and Markstrom then Vancouver flips Markstrom to TO for Bozak, picks
Van- Theodore or Clemmensen, Bozak, picks
Florida's a budget team. Theodore costs $1.5m right now, and if he has a similar year to the one he did last year (quite similar to Luongo's numbers last year), he'll be up for a raise, but likely nowhere near Luongo's $6m+ salary. Theo's also come out and said he's not waiving his NTC, IIRC.
If Theo regresses this year, Luongo is certainly a player they'll look at. But, if he posts similar numbers, they'll probably just sign him to a 2 or 3 year deal in the neighborhood of $3m, and call it a day. Whether they retain Clemmensen will depend on how Markstrom plays this year.
