Luongo is as consistent as it gets, year to year. If I'm betting one way or the other, I'm betting he's good well into late 30's. He's got the track record. He's got the attitude to remain in peak physical condition. The drive etc... The guy's a horse and I think it's exactly for this reason GIllis and Gilman structured the contract the way that they had. They also bet on him being good late into his career.
The problem is, it's TO that will be taking the gamble.
