Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo: Panthers are my 'preferred' team
Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo has been on the trading block since well before the June draft, but September has rolled around and he's no closer to finding a new home.
Luongo did, however, tell Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Tuesday that he would love to return to his former team, the Florida Panthers.
"[Florida] makes sense for myself, for my career and my family," said Luongo, who still has 10 years remaining on his contract. "This is a preferred location for obvious reasons, but I'm not shutting the door on other possibilities." Luongo makes his off-season home in South Florida. He still holds Panthers franchise records for games played by a goalie, wins and shutouts.
