Perhaps, but that doesn't hurt teams with Luongo any more then...Franzen, Zetterberg, Kovalchuk, Hossa and other long term contracts.

As for the Canucks, we have two, possibly three, "non-essential" contracts who we can move instead of moving Luongo for a lesser package. By "non-essential" I mean they would have less of an impact, for the cap hit, then Luongo would, even as a 1-B or 30 start back up.
