"Cap Hit" arguments work with the Leafs. They are the NHl's richest team. For all those many money losing teams, it's a terrible contract.
Chicago spends to the cap, and Edmonton will likely also as they become contenders. Also, there is a clause in the new CBA that allows us top pay up to 3 mil in salary for traded players, making him even more appealing to teams like Florida.
That Luongo will only go to Toronto is a myth.
