Canucks Trade Roberto Luongo

New, comments

And, as always, they turn to their "farm team" for a deal. Roberto Luongo gets his wish, and returns to Florida.

Now, a pairing of Roberto Luongo and Tim Thomas, someone tell me if they thought that was going to happen ?

I am taking suggestions on a new signature as we speak.  FareTheWell Luongod.  We'll always have @strombone1 ...and 2011...

Update ; The return is reportedly Shawn Matthias and Jacob Markstrom . Even if they eat some salary here, I like the return.  Markstrom needs a new place to renew his career, and Rollie Melanson has a new pupil.

Shawn Matthias is a 6'4", 223 pound centre with skill. Fun fact: Lack backed up Markstrom on Brynas in 2009.
