It might be temporarily tough for the Canucks but there's no doubt that a reduction in the available cap space around the league improves the value of a contract with an artificially low cap hit.
This I agree with. We don't even know when the next NHL game is going to be played.
No...it means teams have less cap space to spend. Luongo's contract does not lower his cap hit relative to his salary all that much. Meanwhile, the contract length remains the larger issue. If the cap is not consistently going up, you have to worry more and more about longer term contracts.
As other posters have mentioned it puts more pressure on Vancouver to get rid of him.
