Any of thpse eliminates the risk of Luongo's contract becoming an albatross. Even if the CBA does make those contracts count against the cap, Luongo isn't going to finish his potentially HOF career riding the bus.
Good question. Why does Canucks want to trade "Luongo in his prime years" in the first place.

Luongo can choose to retire whenever he wants, his team has absolutely no say in that.

Cap floor is coming down, very few teams have/want to reach it by signing Luongo.

Everything else is just speculation, Wade Redden has rode the bus for 2 years when he's 35y and having made tens of millions.
