Certainly better for us than his 5.3, better than a buyout for the owner, but the big difference is Kovie will play agin in the KHL. Luongo does not have those options, we he does I guess, if he wants to live in Russia.
Yeah, I understand. More just joking around. Though there is discussion amongst some of the media here of Luo simply sitting out the year - which makes no sense for Luongo.
I'm perfectly happy with Luo playing for the Canucks, barring of course he still wants to. His cap hit is great for the player he is and it will enable us to better the team in front of him, especially when the cap goes back up.
Being a team that spends or will spend close to the cap every year is great, unless of course the cap is artificially decreased. In this scenario we are just going to have to grin and bear it for the year.
The Devils are much worse without Kovie. Not sure how they can replace a player of his ilk.
