The Vancouver Canucks wouldn't have signed him to that contract without the the intention of seeing it through. That's why the contract is designed the way it is, to prevent Luongo from sticking around past his best before date.

Your not doing them any favors, so the leafs won't be treated as such. Your getting an elite player at a cap friendly contract, with outs to prevent the team from being burdened by that cap hit. You can say that waiving him is not a good option, but the Rags did it to Redden. You do what's best for the team.
