Luongo for 6 years(realistically), with an established track record of being elite his entire career, is still worth more than that. Of course, if the new CBA somehow manages to close every single loophole in Luongo`s contract, it might lower his value. But until then the length doesn`t work against him, I think.
Very well written, and fair assessment.

I know Vokoun's rights were traded, but for a goalie that had a market it was still given away for less than people believed.
