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.
Luongo's deal drops to 3.6M in 2018-19, then 1.6 in 2019-20, then 1M for the final two years. For a team looking to reach the cap floor Luongo would make a great back up especially if Edmonton gives up a 3rd to get rid of him. Also comparing Khabibulin to Luongo is laughable, Khabi was brutal in Chicago and Tambo still gave him that ridiculous deal. I would have been happier if Tambo took a chance on Anderson considering how good he had looked prior to signing his UFA deal with the Avalanche.
