Just throwing an idea on the wall to see if it sticks...

I'd tell every gm in the league the Canucks are willing to retain $2MM of the cap hit (and commensurate salary) or 38%.

Makes the contract a lot more palatable which should lead to interest from more teams and a better return. Might need a little patience because every GM right now thinks his team is great and they are set in goal...until of course, the sad reality sets in for half of them. Plus Luongo needs to play along of course.

In this deal though, its important that when he's washed up, the acquiring team send Luongo home instead of him retiring.

Cap hit retention might become a trend - who says we don't trade for a player in the future where the other team retains $2MM?
