Reason number 1 is because of the new CBA. Players cant retire early before their contract is up and if they do their cap hit will count towards the cap till their contract is up retired or not. No burying in the minors either. Luongo will not play till hes 42....so whoever has him will have his cap hit count till then.
The buyout is only possible within the next 2 summers so buying him out when hes ready to retire isnt possible.
Theres no way in hell homer will get him knowing his cap hit will count till hes 42, at least i hope not.
That's not how the new CBA works. The cap hit, or portion of, reverts back to the team that signed the player to the contract.
I still don't think the Flyers do this for any reason.
