Yesterday brought big news for hockey. The Board of Governors ratified the CBA, Brian Burke got fired as GM of the Maple Leafs, and Luongo is probably going to be traded. But to where? First reports came that he would go to the Leafs, but later reports where coming through Twitter that the Flyers might be looking into him.
This comes off the new CBA having a contract buyout and speculation that Bryzgalov’s contract will get the boot. That’s okay I’ll take Bryz over Luongo. Luongo plays well for the first two periods and then falls flat in the third, he seems to never be able to finish a game. The Flyers already have problems with goaltending why bring in a goaltender who chokes in the playoffs?
Because it’s the flyers, is probably the answer every sarcastic fan will give you. Which is pretty much true. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren fired back and announced that he wasn’t really looking into Luongo. Speculation arose that Holmgren lied about Jeff Carter before, so he could be doing the same now.
I just hope to god the Canucks just keep Luongo or let him go to the Leafs. Anyone but the Flyers. Seriously where is Pelle Lindberg and Ron Hextall when you need them?
