Just to make that clear, the number in the far right column would be the annual cap hit for every subsequent season.
Example 1: if Luongo retired prior to the 20172018 season, his caphit for the following five seasons would be 2.59m (12.96m divided by five seasons).
Example 2: If he retired prior to the 20202021 season, his cap hit would be 4.34m (8.67m divided by two seasons).
The cap hit would not change for each individual season after he retired.
