2) What player who thinks they are going to be a superstar for 14 years locks in with a contract of that length when they could cash in later?
A) Weber will never have a better opportunity to cash in and get as much money as possible as he will now.

B) The deal is pretty heavily front-loaded -- $56 million, of the total $110 million, is due in the first four years of the fourteen-year deal.

Why should every GM be taking a lesson from the guy who signed Luongo to that contract in the first place?
