from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province at Canada.com,
If Roberto Luongo had known this would be the reaction, he probably would have announced he’d be willing to waive his no-trade clause years ago.
He should be feeling the love, because it’s coming from just about everywhere.
Even one of his harshest, most unrelenting critics, Sportsnet’s Damien Cox, who once said the Canucks’ “tragic flaw” was building around Luongo, is now advocating the Leafs look at taking a run at him.
That monster contract viewed two years ago as crippling is now “cap friendly.” Hilarious, indeed, especially when you consider the unlikelihood that Luongo would waive his NTC to go to Toronto.
Ballparking on the potential Luongo market, Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman said as many as nine teams could be interested, and as few as five, including the most mentioned destinations, Florida and Tampa Bay.
