With what JQ is going to get starting next year we want our backup in the 2M range no more. And because of where JB is at it will no longer be DL choice really. We trade him or he probably signs an offer sheet and we take what we get.

As to calling JB a starter. Most of us think he is able to be just that. But it's unproven and at 3.5M he would be in and around the top 20 in cap hit for goalies. And there will be at least one proven starter on the market coming out of Vancouver.

DL will take the best offer he can get on draft day for him otherwise he looses all control over what happens. And it's better to know what your are getting even if you aren't happy that take the chance.
We have different opinions as to who/what JB is or will be and what DL is willing to pay in order to maintain the best possible goaltending tandem. You say that DL will not pay more than $2m, I say he will if he is left with no other options. I guess we will see.
