Luongo would not get a 7.5 million cap hit right now. Luongo on a 4 year by 6 mil contract, would have much higher value than his present contract though.
Rinne has the highest cap hit at 7. He's also 4 years younger and coming off a better season. Also, it's likely Nashville overpaid to keep him.
Luongo's contract is in no way a positive. It has a very marginal savings on cap and goes on for way too long.
