After signing Roberto Luongo to a 12-year/$64 million deal, Mike Gillis went on a few sports shows, including the FAN 590 where he revealed this little nugget about Lui’s no-trade clause:

There is a point in time where Roberto can, if we’re not on track in a number of years, he can ask and we would accommodate a move for him. And there’s another one that’s reciprocal for us.

Gillis wasn’t specific on the date, but I’d dare guess that Lui’s out clause is around the time period the Sedins’ contracts expire and the Canucks’ is around the time he turns 38 years old.

But anyway…

A 12-year commitment is a long commitment, and there were some concerns that it may have been too long. Now that we know that there are, in fact, a couple of out clauses should quell those concerns. From the Canucks’ perspective, the ability to move Luongo (albeit limited) gives them some flexibility to rebuild down the road.

    If Luongo turns out to as Stellar as Brodeur is at age 38, I would hate to see us get rid of him, especially because by that time, he will essentially have become the face of this organization for 1.5 decades, it’d be hard to see him not retire a Canuck.

    Trust me, if Luongo is still that stellar at age 38, the Canucks won’t get rid of him.

    Based on how Gillis phrased the statement, either the Canucks would have to be dissatisfied with Luongo’s play or Luongo would have to be dissatisfied with the Canucks’ lack of (playoff) success for either to exercise the clause.

    i don’t think we should already be thinking of out clauses… just focus on the positive and not worry if things don’t turn out well… us canucks fans always have something negative to say… it’s not healthy…

    Wow, a 12 year contract! Even for $64 million that is too long. I wonder if the money will be given to him on an annual schedule.
