Yeah Luongo is an abysmal comparison. His value sucks because his contract will still be active when my first grandchild is born (note: I don't even have kids), and whatever team takes that on is taking a big risk. With the contracts that have been given out so far under the new CBA, 7 mil for player like Vanek isn't even really out of whack.
