As reported initially by Renaud Lavoie on Twitter, Roberto Luongo has been traded back to the Florida Panthers after 8 years. As you might expect, Twitter is going absolutely wild and there is a number of speculations being thrown around as to who is coming back in the deal. The one constant is young goaltender Jacob Markstrom. Much like Eddie Lack, he is a young, tall, lanky Swede that has shown flashes of brilliance, but has been grossly under tested. After having arguably the most talented NHL goaltending duo in Luongo and Schneider several years ago, the Canucks now have two goalies with a combined 43 games of NHL experience. Hold on, folks… this is going to be a bumpy ride.
