With all due respect to Luongo, his contract length is ugly and not something that we should be looking to acquire. Would he be an upgrade to our team? Sure, Dubnyk has not proven himself to be better than Luongo yet and probably never will, but you don't just say "hey so and so will improve my club so who gives a damn about cap implications, let's get him!". Now if there is some sort of clause in the new CBA that saddles the team that signed the player to said deal when he retires/is sent to the minors regardless of what team he ends up retiring/being sent to the AHL from then I consider this very closely and make a play for Roberto. Something that hasn't been mentioned is that if there is an amnesty buyout and the Canucks do that with him, perhaps he wouldn't mind playing for the Oilers and will sign with us as a FA? But with his current contract and players in the minors counting against the cap in the next CBA, I'd have no reason to add Luongo.
