The other thing to add is in 6-10 years there is a pretty good chance a $5.3m cap hit isn't even the average for NHL goalies, the cap is going to go up.

It's not ideal to be locked in that long, but there are MANY benefits to that contract, even with the new cap benefit re-capture provision.
Because Luongo is Martin Brodeur, and even ignoring that ridiculous argument, Luongo will physically hold up like Martin Brodeur ?

Even if they are both physical twins, Brodeur logs about 1/10th the travel Luongo does. I doubt Luongo can play at a reasonable level at age 40.
