I don't think many teams can deal with that.
When he retires the team has to payback all the savings his cap circumventing contract created. He definititely won't play the last 3 years, and the team that signs him has to hope he is still a 5.3 million dollar goalie when he's 40. Too much risk and expense that far ahead. Now if Luongo was 25 and not 34 this April. His contract would be fine.
