For The Sake Of The NHL- Send Luongo To Detroit

from Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press (Saturday edition) via the Mercury News,
The Original Six and a second-generation franchise such as the Philadelphia Flyers have to be the league's strongest teams because they have the name recognition and historical cache necessary for attracting even modest television audiences for later playoff rounds. If that means pulling some behind-the-scenes strings, then so be it. Superstar-in-waiting goaltender Roberto Luongo wants out of Florida. He's likely to sign a one-year qualifying offer that would make him an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2007. Luongo is a genuine asset that the NHL can't afford to waste somewhere in the netherworld. The Panthers will likely trade Luongo long before next summer, ensuring they get something in return. And the league should steer him to Detroit.
