Contrary to what most believe he is still a great goaltender. I think he just needs a change of scenery so that he is no longer the whipping boy in Vancouver.
No, the risk is ONLY on the Oilers, the risk of losing the young talent they've suffered to get because of a massively overpaid goaltender who hasn't won anything (Not saying Dubnyk has, but he's not making 'Luongo' money)

For that contract 'Whipping boy' or not Luongo isn't worth the risk to the Oilers, not even close.
