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.
We can't predict what will come from the new CBA. Whose to say what the new ceiling will be? Too much uncertainty. Paying 5+ million for a back up is never a good thing. Never.
Whose to say Luongo would make a good mentor?
Anyways, how about you guys keep him than? Toronto will not overpay. I suggest a 1st + top prospect for a player who's redundant on your team. If your not interested, fine. We'll look elsewhere or look from within. I mean not disrespect.
