There hasn't been word on any changes to the way retirements are handled in the new CBA. One would think there needs to be certainty this hasn't changed.

A second point of note is that Luongo is 33 and 34 in less than 3 months. He'll definitely be playing until he's 40 with the current deal. That alone is a significant risk. God forbid he should play the last 3 years -- that would be a disaster.

This isn't a post diminishing his value to upset Van fans -- only saying I would NOT touch him unless the deal was very soft. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, that is mine, not saying that's what will happen.
