Found October 19, 2012 on Puck Drunk Love:
Please, someone end the lockout simply so that we don't have to ponder Roberto Luongo's future any further. Luongo's time is all but officially over in Vancouver. It has been since the 2011-12 season when Cory Schneider climbed past the weathered veteran, making Luongo one incredibly expensive benchwarmer.  Even as the lockout persists, rumors are still creeping up about where Luongo will go next. All signs are pointing to Toronto but will that truly be Luongo's next home?  A recent article from The Globe and Mail speculates that Luongo's move to Toronto almost makes too much sense not to happen. The Maple Leafs need a new goaltender - desperately. The Canucks will be asking a big price for their former number one and the Maple Leafs are one of the few teams that could stomach the steep price. Looks like all the puzzle pieces fit, right?  Not so fast.  The Toronto Star reports that the Vancouver Canucks have denied the rumor that a trade with Toronto has...

I find these rumours a little hard to believe, because Luongo has a NTC in place and would have to approve any trade. Right now that cannot happen because Mike Gil...

Dee Karl: Germany, Binghamton or Anywhere: It's all about the Net

Rick DiPietro is playing on one of the worst teams in Germany. Many of you (not Isles fans) will say he should feel right at home. But the truth is even Martin Broduer and Roberto Luongo have been chased from their net at one point or another. Rick lost in his debut game and then again, in overtime the next visit to the net. He was passed over for the third game, which...
