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.

The best way to get around this is to trade back for him and LTIR him. I wonder how PHI is going to feel about this?
