A much more legitimate approach would be to question why so few teams have expressed interest in acquiring Luongo.
But to answer the question at hand, the league is interested in ending this charade because it is unsustainable to the health of the fiscal position of teams and league overall.
The cap is virtually irrelevant; it holds no legitimacy. The fact that fans seem to place such a disproportionate value on cap-hits (to the point of detriment or propping of the actual abilities of players) is both unfortunate and frustrating at the same time.
"unsustainable to the health of the fiscal position of teams" --> Meaning what exactly? Please elaborate.
Cap irrelevant... Gillis and Gilman structured this deal specifically to gain a cap advantage... Hmmm... Something doesn't add up here. It seems it's not only fans that place value on cap-hits, but also GMs.
