6.7 million is elite money. Who can guarantee that Luongo is still elite 3 years from now, when people already argue if he belongs to that group today.
Agreed. Luongo's contract would just handcuff Tallon for all those years when we have to sign the kids and attract UFAs.
If he moves Scottie's contract, it's only a 1.8 mil cap hit difference for three years of the contract. No one can guarantee anything in sports, including prospects and elite players. It's just not possible.
Tallon knows what he's doing, he's not going to screw the team. Granted he gets paid more than the hit, which could also be an issue, but trusting he's gonna hang em up in 5(ish) years is the biggest issue.
