In the grand scheme of things though, imagine if the relationship between Vancouver and Luongo was still great and he finished his career here prior to his contract ending. The Canucks were always anticipating that they would be paying for his "retirement years" against the cap.
It seems like the Canucks will likely be in the same situation now, except with a different set of players on our roster instead of Luongo.
And let's say he doesn't retire until 2019-2020. By then the salary cap could be north of 80m for the subsequent seasons. For all we know, his 5.3m cap will be small potatoes in the grand scheme of the salary cap.
