He'd probably love to do it, considering his remarks yesterday, but the NHLPA would never let it stand.

It's all about setting a precedent. If Luongo does it, then teams might start to pressure their players to restructure their contracts under threat of playing time. And then you'd start to look like the NFL, where contracts aren't guaranteed and players almost never play out their contracts.

The PA would block it first thing. Or at the very least tie the thing up in court for a long time.
