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.
There's no way Homer or Snider are thinking that long term. If he can't get the #1 defenseman, I guess he's going for the next best solution.

My guess is Laughton + 1st+ some current piece on the roster.
