Why with an escalating cap, his cap hit will be less proportionately. How much do you think quality backups will get paid by then? Could be a 1-2 million difference with Luongo. Luongo also has mentor value and most likely will be at worst 1b starter by the time he retires. Just does not seem that risky or taxing on cap 5 years from now, especially when you consider the opportunity cost of backups in the future.
