Option 3: Luongo decides to screw everyone over, doesn't retire, and uses his limited NTC to prevent a trade(even to Florida). Management can then force him to play in the minors until he agrees to option 1 or option 2. So unless luongo prefers riding the bus to retirement or Florida, there's not too much risk involved.

That said: Tyler Bozak, Matt Finn, and the Leafs choice of Kadri, Kulemin, or a 1st conditional on playoffs.
Still counts against the cap while he rides the bus.

And you know he'll probably ride a limo to games, or even buy a "Madden" bus for the team.
