And you say my argument's weak?

But your arguement is weak. Your speculating. No offense. Either you accept less than you expect, or you're stuck wit. Yes stuck, no one wants to be paying a 40 + year old 5.3 mil. (Brodeur is the exception)
As has been mentioned numerous, numerous times, there are many different possible options:

1)(Most likely) Luongo retires when his play declines and he knows he is no longer wanted.
2)(next most likely) Luongo would still like to play, so is traded to a cap floor team as a veteran backup.
3)(less likely) Luongo refuses to retire and there are no interested cap floor teams. Luongo is buried in the minors until he retires or his term is up.

4) Option 3, with the added twist that the CBA doesn't allow burying in the minors, and Luongo prefers to play in the AHL to retiring. That it's even considered a possibility is absurd.
