Should the Caps trade for Roberto Luongo?

Maybe for spare parts...
Canucks can talk all they want about Luongo's value, but they ignore a couple of very key points in every conversation:
1) His contract is really BAD and will carry cap penalties when he retires under the new CBA
2) They only have ~3.9M dollars left under next years cap with 14 players under contract, so they absolutely have to get rid of Luongo or Schneider
You can't assume you are going to get a solid deal when other teams know that you have to make a move. They might be able to trade him as a deadline deal and get something solid in return, but that would be a risky proposition, because after that every team would know that they are desperate to part ways because of next years cap....
