Let's try this one more time.
Florida had to
UFAs to reach the cap floor. Luongo would allow them to pay
, while reaching that same floor. His play is less relevant to them than his cap because he saves them money.
Example! They paid Upshall 3.5M, who has the same cap hit. Meanwhile at 39, they would only pay Luongo 1.6M despite him having a 5.3M cap hit, thus they
pay less actual dollars
This is not rocket science, mate.
