Roberto Luongo currently ranks as the league’s second highest career earner, amongst goaltenders, of all time. Who can forget one of the more ridiculous deals ever in the NHL, which saw Luongo make $64 million for over 12 years? Take nothing away for Lu, he is a tremendous goalie, but the term of this contract was absolutely ridiculous. Roberto’s contract is finally set to expire during the 2021-2022 season, and he will be 42 years old by the time his contract is finally up. Luongo’s pays will decrease significantly throughout his deal, making 1.6 million, 1 million and 1 million, in the final three years of his 12-year deal.
