Canucks’ Roberto Luongo Say’s He “Might Be” Playing With The Florida Panthers Again.


Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo is surrounded by trade rumors, one team that is often linked with his name, Florida Panthers.

As most of you know by now, Luongo has been playing in WSOP Main Event and he was finally eliminated. He finished in 634th place for $19,227.

What you may not know, Luongo told a player at his table he “might” be playing for the Florida Panthers again.

Hockey fans in Vancouver have been eating up the coverage of their star goalie, Roberto Luongo, as he plays in his first WSOP Main Event. He might not be their goalie for much longer though, if you read between the lines of a conversation Luongo had with another player at his table, Kamran Siddiqui.

“You played for my hometown team,” said Siddiqui, who is from Miami.

“Who’s that?” asked Luongo.

“The Florida Panthers,” answered Siddiqui.

“Oh yeah, I might be going back there,” said Luongo, while smiling.

“Yeah?” asked Siddiqui.

“Might be,” replied Luongo.

Panthers acquired Luongo back in 2000 from the New York Islanders for forwards Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha.

I know this is no surprise, Luongo does live in Florida in off-season and there is no doubt he would love to be on the Panthers again.
