Your POV is objective, and on the extreme. Your at one end, and the people demanding the sky are at the other end.

I will gladly have an avatar bet with you that Luongo will not be bought out if you do indeed feel so strongly.
I said, "if he plays five more years."

This what a buyout looks like in 2018, for a 39 year old goalie:

2018-19 : 2.5 million
2019-20: 4.3 million
2020-21: 4.9 million
2021-22: 4.9 million
Then another 583,333 until 2026.

A buyout in less than 5 years would be even more atrocious.

You are ignoring the obvious; this contract won't move.
