Panthers “Turn The Table” On Luongo

from the Sun-Sentinel,
Roberto Luongo said Wednesday he wants to keep playing for the Panthers, but is "upset, hurt and concerned" after General Manager Mike Keenan's recent disclosure that the team will explore trading the franchise goalie by this weekend's draft. "Especially after I came out and said I'd like to stay here and I didn't want to go," Luongo said in a phone interview. "Now they're turning the tables on me. It's very upsetting."

The following is a transcript of an exclusive South Florida Sun-Sentinel interview with Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo: Q: GORTEN: Do you expect to still be Florida's goalie come Monday? A: LUONGO: "That's not for me to answer. That's more a question for Mike [Keenan]. We made them aware of what we want and now it's up to them. The ball is in their court really." Q: GORTEN: If you were traded, which teams would you prefer? A: LUONGO: "That's not a question that really needs to be addressed right now. My main concern is to stay with the Florida Panthers. Besides, at this point, it's out of my control."
