Can anyone further explain this...

So, we say the new "Luongo Deal" where a player with a contract such as his, if traded to a team and retiring early, the team that originally signed him to his long deal will be responsible for some of the hit, as well as the team that acquired him. That much is all clear for me.

But, this question, from what I've seen, hasn't yet been asked and is therefor unanswered.

What happens if Luongo is traded to the Leafs this season. 10 years left on his deal. Lets say, in 3 years, the Leafs decide they no longer want Loungo, so they trade him. 7 years left. Let's say he plays four more of those years, then retires. Are the Leafs still going to be penalized with his cap, or will it be the team that signed him to the contract and the team that is currently signing his checks?
