TSN is reporting that Roberto Luongo will be submitting a list of teams he will be willing to be traded to next week and that the Toronto Maple Leafs will be one of them. Likely in no small part due to Luongo’s summer goalie coach Francois Allaire working for the team, it appears Luongo would accept a trade to the Leafs should one formulate.
Speculation has beenÂ rampant since the Vancouver Canucks were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs and had turned to backup netminder,Â Cory Schneider over Roberto Luongo in their series against the LA Kings. Luongo’s latest meeting with the press sounded and read much like an exit interview. Even before the Canucks’ playoffs were over, the official team website was announcing the start of the Cory Schneider era. The writing is indeed on the wall.
The question now becomes one of price. Let the fun begin.
