His cap hit will be great for a team looking to hit the cap floor in 2018. No one cares or thinks about it. We may be into the next CBA after the next one is signed by then. Who knows what the cap will be.
Exactly, so why worry about it? The Canucks certainly haven't been winning because they've avoided taking risks. The Canucks haven't been winning because they've used other goalies than Luongo in net for the majority of the past few years. And the Canucks certainly didn't get 1 game away from the Stanley Cup with Luongo in net. Oh wait, maybe they did.
