You probably will have to ship assets with him to get anybody to take on that cap hit once he starts to decline and we're talking 1st round picks.

Buying him out now makes the most sense then nobody faces a cap hit. So really if you are looking at Luongo look at signing him as a UFA.
They are probaly asking to much, reports were they were asking for 2 2nds.

Buy out? Hey mr katz, we want you to pay a huge amount of money on a buyout. We don't know if there will be real buy outs or not.

It's crazy, people blinded with short term success over a potentially crippling contract. How much better is snyder than dubnyk? The nucks are desperate to get rid of this contract. I hope we don;t fall for it.
In 3 years if he is still playing decent you could probaly deal him for a 7th.

Even if not, I dont care if we bring him on, only to buy him out in 4 years. It doesnt hurt the teams cap and ability to sign other players (excpet for the years in which hes playing, and those years help us)

It only affects Katz and his money. If he doesnt want to pay that for the buy out I accept that, its his money after all, and its alot of coin.

But if he wants to make the Oilers better at the price of giving up money than trading for Lu would be an option. I also dont believe hell be bought out, he will be dealt this summer at some point. If even for a 5th.

The other option for Vancouver, unlikely as it may be, is to simply kiss and make up with Luongo, re-anoint him as their undisputed #1 guy, and trade Schneider instead. They certainly would get much more of a return that way.

It's not a great solution as Luongo's contract still sucks and will suck for a long time, but they may end up deciding that it's the best of a terrible bunch of choices.

Meh I see him playing at a high level for at least 4-5 more years. I think his contract would be very tradeable by the end of the 2018-19 season as his actual salary is only 1.6M. If he was traded to a cap floor team and they buy him out in 2019 they'll only have to pay him 2.4M roughly to take up roughly 13.5M in cap space over the next 3 years. And worst come to worst Edmonton could agree to pitch on some of the salary making him an even more affordable option.

The 5 teams I believe are in the mix, to varying degrees, on Jonathan Bernier: Florida, Minny, Philly, Tor and NYI...

If Luongo is bought out, I'd be interested in signing him. But having any part of that contract is a disaster waiting to happen. 9 more years of that is just too big of a risk, I can't imagine buying him out and having to deal with the effects of that until 2031.
