Since the various reports of a Roberto Luongo trade to Toronto aren't already insane enough...let's throw some gasoline on the fire! One of the intricacies of the new yet-to-be-ratified CBA is the "cap-recapture system." Basically, this affects players with long-term deals (minimum five or six years, I'm not 100 per cent certain). Either way, Luongo's counts because his is a 12-year deal. Therefore, there will be a penalty if he retires before the contract is completed. How does it work?Everyone's favourite Elliotte Friedman decided to do the fun legwork on how the cap-recapture clause in the new CBA would apply to a Roberto Luongo trade. While it certainly adds to the long-term risk of acquiring Luongo it also should reduce the cost to acquire him as the Canucks would be getting rid of a big contract and the future lost cap space due to the cap recapture. How this change is weighed is obviously open to interpretation but I see a bigger incentive for the Canucks to move Luongo before the season starts.
