Again, explain to me how a cap-circumvention contract is an "albatross". It makes no sense. Really think about the contradiction in that statement, and the league's willingness to close the loophole, and reconsider your position on it.
You can not want Luongo. That's fair. But to continue to call his excellent contract an albatross shows your lack of education about it, and its effects on a rich team's cap structure. Shockingly, some media types have said what you have said, but they don't get questioned. So I'm not surprised that this false assumption as persisted... Ken Holland, Mike Gillis, Paul Holmgren and even Dale Tallon were some of the few GMs that exploited this loophole while it was still an option to do so. I suppose these are all terrible GMs in your POV?
