The risk of having a player near the end (or at the end) of his prime with a long-term deal (and fairly significant cap-hit) still remains.
It won't change Luongo's value positively or negatively than whatever it was before. The risk is still there, just teams like Vancouver, Philadelphia and others will be punished as well.
Under the old CBA, the cap hit would have just disappeared. Now it will revert back to Vancouver. Either way, it makes zero difference to the team acquiring him.
