No 5.3 for ten years for a goalie whose best years are behind him.... I mean Luongo doesn't guarantee anything, except that you are doing the Nucks a favor by taking that silly contract...
Nobody takes that contract without either giving a junk contract back or having it reduce the compensation in a big way.
It's not 5.3 for ten years. In reality its 5.3 for 6 more years. Thats a descent contract for Luongo.
If Luongo was a UFA right now do you think he can get 5.3 for 6 years? I do. I think 5.3 for 5 years would ge a great deal for Luongo, adding 1 more year does not make it a terrible contract.
Look what Philly got back for Jeff Carter and he has a huge lengthy contract. His contract was 11 years long with the last 3 years at 3 mil, 2 mil and 2 mil at which point he would retire. Luongo's last 3 yearts are 1.6 mil, 1.0 mil 1.0 mil. Carter got traded twice in a year with a substantial package coming back in both trades.
