That's where the buyout come in.

Jesus Christ are you guys naive if you think someone will turn down easy money to be "the good guy."

GMs dug their own graves with nonsense contracts like these.

Nobody in their right mind say, "yeah, I'll just retire and give you fools a break on the contract YOU GAVE ME!"

At some point, they will all be bought out, and the GM that has to do it will curse their predecessor for the cap hit it will cost.

Luongo will still be a hugely expensive buyout, even when he is nearly 40. He won't just retire to satisfy the needs of armchair GMs on the internet. That is GUARANTEED money, and nobody walks away from that, in spite of how wealthy they are, unless he is a nephew of Mother Teresa.
