Just wanted to know what the poster meant.
There is an opt-out clause that Luongo can exercise after year 6, when the Sedin twins contract expires. It was put in so he could evaluate the direction the team was heading without the Sedins, and he could opt out of the contract if they were rebuilding and he did not want to.

Or something like that, but there is definitely an opt out clause after year 6
