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.

What does the future hold for Luongo? Have your say in our forum.

People like to put players down because of the media says so. Make your own evaluation of the player. Put Luongo on a team that has a good defense in front of him and he'd be fine. Where were the Sedin when things went bad for Vancouver. Well I'll tell you. They were not playing so they could lose so that they could be heroes for there home country at the world. But they never seem to shouder the blame for the teams woes.

It would be great to see him in Toronto's net but he will most likely end up in Florida somewhere. He has also unfairly been a scapegoat for Vancouver's failure to win a Stanley Cup.

Roberto's future? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I see a big future for him in the Blue & White!!! Then he'll get the Cup he so richly deserves.

But seriously, I think Edmonton would be a great place for him - I agree with Pedro. With all of that young talent, the Oilers will be an exciting team to watch over the next few years.

Luongo is a scapegoat for a team that wins until someone starts bumping them around.

Imagine this guy in a Penguins sweater?

Hopefully Luongo will end up on a team that appreciates the skill sets he brings to the table. Edmonton Oilers need a goalie of his abilities. It would be a sure Stanley Cup, not a pipe dream like they are experiencing in Vancouver.
