In the NFL, players renegotiate their contracts all the time (Brady has done it multiple times in New England) to take less money, reduce their cap hit and allow the organization to spend more money elsewhere to build a winner.
With the NHL's CBA is Luongo absolutely prevented from renegotiating his contract or is it not done just because the PA would puke all over it?
I'm assuming from other high profile examples like Gomez and Redden, both sides must be structurally bound to the deal until the end of its terms, but it seems kind of stupid to me that if a player wants to renegotiate for a lesser deal to create a better playing situation for himself, that he is not able to.
