Does that mean Canucks or the new team will be on the hook for the full caphit for the life of the contract, no matter if Luongo retires or not.
If the new team assumes the cap hit, Luongo becomes untradeable. No team will mortgage their future to take on Luongo, who is a risk even without the recapture formula.
