I mean I think he will be an effective player (#1 goalie) for the Wild for about half of his contract, and I think that is fairly generous. Meaning out of the 40ish million owed to him, it's not all a cap dump.

Rough figures I know but my point is just because Heatley is a buyout candidate for this year still doesn't equate to the tens of millions Luongo will cost without much of anything to show for it.
