For both of them to hit the big contract would be an extra 4.5mil. Horcoff comes off the books right away too so that frees up 5+ mil
J Schultz is not going to make 6 mil out of his ELC, it rarely happens with D man unless they are exceptional. Look at PK Subban's deal he signed this summer for an example..
Ah, so you take on the millstone and just hope the rest of the contracts work out, good plan.
The better plan is to keep Dubnyk, or sign a boughtout Luongo to not a stupid contract.
Edit: Adding Luongo is probably good in the VERY short term, but it's a long term disaster for this team.
