Everyone is worried about Lu cap hit after retirement...

Question: Regular buyout options still exist...so seeing as most NHL goalies can keep up a quality game until age 37/39...say Lu plays 6 years in TO until age 39

Why can't TO buy Lu out at the regular 2/3 cap hit at that point??? By then the cap should be at about $73M...Lu buyout hit would be nothing or they could trade him to a team which needs to meet cap floor. Bottom line Burke needs TODAY not to worry about anything else!
