Luongo Makes Sense For The Panthers

from Mike Berardino of the Sun Sentinel,

If they can get Luongo for little more than future draft picks, it could be worth the Panthers’ while to roll the dice and assume his contract.

He does, after all, rank second among active NHL goalies in career regular-season victories (339). He’s No. 4 in active save percentage and third in appearances.

And despite his woes in the playoffs, where he’s 32-29, Luongo did produce enough nightly magic to help the Canucks earn the top seed in the West.

Theodore won’t be thrilled about a Luongo aquisition, but he’ll be 36 on Opening Night and had recurring knee problems last year.

Clemmensen, 35 later this month, would become another trade chip for Tallon. Or maybe Clem stays and Theo goes.
