The Hawks cannot afford Luongo and that's all there is to it. And you're going to risk it all for one shot at the Cup this year at the expense of fielding a decent team for years to come? That's not an intelligent way to run a team in a league with a salary cap.
But you are missing the point that its not any fans problem. Winning the Cup should and always will be the most important goal. Ask any fan of any team if they could either win a Cup or have cap space and nine times out of ten will say win a Cup.
The salary cap is of no concern to any fan. Would you rather the Hawks didnt win a Cup and instead had salary cap room in 2010? Like really?
