What does the future hold for Roberto Luongo? Wed, April 25, 2012
By HOSEA CHEUNG, QMI Agency
Roberto Luongo may have faced the media for the final time on Apr. 24 as a Vancouver Canuck.
The former team captain -- and, up to two weeks ago, the starting goaltender for the Presidents' Trophy winners -- stood before a throng of reporters and cameras, acknowledging he was ready to do what was best for the team, repeating that phrase at least six times.
Whether that means the 33-year-old, who has 10 years left in a 12-year contract, will be permanently replaced as the No. 1 goalie next season by a younger and more consistent Cory Schneider remains to be seen. But Luongo, pride and all, is open to being moved.
Asked if he would waive his no-trade clause, the franchise's career wins leader, with 224, didn't shy away.
"Of course, if they ask me to," Luongo said. "I don't want to be one of those guys who is going to stand in the way of anything. There haven't been any decisions made.
