If you look at how Tallon is building the team, it actually makes more sense than you think.

Markstrom is 4 years younger than Schneider, so Luongo would be the starter and allow Markstrom to develop slowly - just like Van did with Schneids. Given that he's signed a bunch of vets has stopgaps until the youngsters are ready (astute) in numerous skating positions it makes sense to do it in goal as well.

Tallon is certainly interested, and has admitted as such. So if we are going to trade Lou for scraps, we'll trade him to where his family is. Win win for all parties.
