I really don't think Mike Gillis is going to fall all over himself to deal Luongo to avoid that problem nearly a decade down the line, especially when this current CBA (which might not even be in effect by then) would allow him to trade for players and leave some of their cap hit and salary behind - effectively getting him around any penalty.
Your right. I was thinking he had a $10M salary this year, but that is not the case.
