You Want Rumors?

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, - Panthers general manager Dale Tallon is most certainly on the hotseat.

I NOW Consider Roberto Luongo A Hall Of Famer

One question I find interesting is exactly when in a player's career does he establish himself as a Hockey Hall of Famer regardless of what may happen in the remainder of his career.  I think Roberto Luongo has reached that threshold.
