Luongo Retires....

So $2.8M cap hit?
Can Luongo not go on LTIR instead?
Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie

On to the business: VAN will get hit with a cap recapture penalty of slightly more than $3M in each of the next three seasons. FLA cap recapture penalty will be slightly more than $1M in each of next three seasons.
With the Panthers about to buyout Riemer and sign Bobrovsky & Panarin, I doubt they wanted him on LTIR. I bet they even pushed him into it.

Could JB trade a 7th rounder for Luongo and put him on LTIR instead?

No, at the time it was a good deal. Subsequent retroactive rule changes by the NHL penalized the agreement.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Wasn’t Gillis supposed to be ahead of the game? A true visionary? To the point of weird? Like “how the fuck?”

Myers isn't out of the question.

Buying out Spooner gives us an extra $2M in cap space
Buying out Schaller gives us an extra $1M in cap space

I think most of the adults understand this. The contracts should have been grandfathered in by the league.

Yeah, that really pisses me off. What did the Canucks do to get the ire of the league on this? You know Boston, Toronto or pretty much any other American franchise would have gotten it grandfathered in.

Gillis

He made a lot of enemies when he was a Players Agent.

Why cant this rediculous ruling be appealed?

No need to buy either out - drop them into the minors and you save almost the same amount of cap space, but the contracts are only on the books for 1 year instead of 2.

Because Aquilini either agreed to the retroactive rule change at a governor's meeting, or failed to convince enough fellow owners at the time that it shouldn't be retroactive.

Either way, there is zero percent chance the league will do anything to help the canucks, just another lump to be taken.

I think we all knew when cap re capture was brought in that we would be the only team to suffer from it - even though Luongo made it closer than anybody to completing his contract.
