From Bob McKenzie

"Any existing deal in excess of 5 yrs would carry cap hit in every year of contract, even if player were to retire with year(s) left."

So... that's gotta hurt.

From just now:

"Sorry I lied. Important note on back-diving contracts (BDC). If player traded, then later in deal retires, original club on hook for cap hit"

If this becomes part of the new CBA, that's pretty much the nail in the coffin right? Pretty much unable to trade Luongo now?
