And on that point, my last, I see where some of the separation begins.
At 5.3M I can only imagine Luongo being a discount on that figure for 3-4 years
. He may match that figure but by no means perform better then it. Thus I see him declining somewhat around 36/37 from elite status.
With that being considered, 3-4 years of advantage, maybe 2-3 years of debatable market value leaves about 4 years where he will perform below that cap hit. Say he retires before the contract is over so 3 years. Plus 3-4 years of a dead cap space penalty and you have about 6 years where the cap hit versus his ability would be a detriment versus 3-4 years of real value.
Not what I would consider fair or not even the slightest problem.
