Secondly, there are tons of factors that you aren't considering including:
Is Shaw and his 3.9M cap hit coming back?
What about Seabrook?
What about De Haan?
Is Zach Smith getting bought out or traded?
Is Ian Mitchell going to start in the NHL next season?
Is Strome and Kubalik going to accept bridge deals or want longer term contracts?
What about Koekkoek, Caggiula, Beaudin, Suter, etc.
What about Crawford?
What about Gilbert, Carlsson, etc..
Clearly you know nothing about the Hawks so just worry about finding someone to take Murray and leave us alone.</div></div>
You keep missing the point. Forget about Murray. If you want a legit starting goalie, Strome still doesn't make sense.
Seabrook isn't going anywhere unless the NHL allows teams a compliance buyout which they are considering.
Shaw is coming back, don't worry.
As far as your other points, you're still missing the financial point or how much it will cost you to get a legit starting goalie. You're not getting anyone worthwhile for $2M. Strome, if you're lucky, will cost $4.5M. If you have a chance, not with the Pens, to get a capable 3C that's cost-controlled, it helps you accomplish other goals.
Get a clue.
