The only risk involved is if his play goes into the toilet before we get to the 2018-19 season. Either way if he can give us 5 years where were legitimate contenders with a cup or two I think taking on the contract is worth the risk.
Hey we would have been set if Khabibulin had given us 4 years of decent play instead we got a couple weeks. I dont think it's as easy to get rid of Luongo as you are making it look and I think the chances of his play going into the toilet before then are more than a slight risk. I wouldnt want to be stuck with a $5 million cap hit for a backup that you can no longer get rid of at the point where we are challenging for a cup.
