Fair enough (although that sounds like a fair deal to me...) - but I think a lot of this has to do with Lou wanting to put Tallinder back into a good situation.

He seems like a mad man from the outside, but he has a ton of respect for the players on his roster.

Wanting to find him a suitable place to play + the obvious fact that his back was against the wall cap-wise ... well that limited the return that he was able to get at this point in time.
