Florida - has a young very promising goalie in net. Absolutely no reason to give up any assets for Lu.
Toronto - same reasons. Their position either gets stronger or weaker depending on how JR performs this spring.
Devils - same as Florida, however Wedgewood is further behind. Could perhaps see them making a play
Islanders - you really think they'll go into another long contract while they have DiPietro?
Edmonton - Potentially a destionation
Flyers - again, long contract fear with Bryz and that's only if they buy him out
Chicago - Vancouvers arch rivals, and has a quality affordable netminder in Crawford
Carolina - Ward is under contract for 3 more years at 6m+. For a team thats so cash conscious, that they ate half of Jokinen's cap hit to avoid paying his full
salary next season.
So really... there's a couple potential destinations... and do you really think the offers will get better in June/July? In all honestly they'll likely be the same. A meh player/prospect and a pick or two. Especially with Toronto's offer leaking like this, and with everyone knowing that Vancouver
move him (less than 1m in cap space, 16 ppl signed), they don't have a lot of options. At some point they'll have to suck it up and move him for the best offer on the table. Or offer out Schneider... however I don't think anyone expects them to actually do this.
I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
