It's finally over. After three years of dragging goaltender Roberto Luongo on regarding his future, the Vancouver Canucks' goaltending controversy ends with a trade. Eddie Lack has a new partner in young goaltender Jacob Markstrom, and Luongo is heading back where he put up some outstanding numbers: the Florida Panthers.
Luongo and his huge contract are now property of the Panthers in exchange for Markstrom and Shawn Matthias - and 15% of his salary stays behind. The huge albatross of a salary, that Luongo bemoaned as sucking - and that he seriously contemplated voiding - was trade prohibitive beyond nearly everyone's wildest imaginations.no comments
