Maybe Roberto Luongo will have better luck selling his Vancouver penthouse than the Canucks have had offloading his massive contract.

The Canucks' expensive backup goaltender, who played second fiddle to starter Cory Schneider for most of the regular season, is ready to move on after putting his $4.2 million home up for sale.

Reading between the lines, it seems Luongo is anticipating he'll be moved either through a trade or a buyout.

The two bedroom condo is listed at 2,673 square feet and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, covered outdoor terraces and is within walking distance of Vancouver's posh Yaletown.

With the emergence of Schneider during last season's playoffs, Canucks general manager Mike Gillis openly admitted he was entertaining offers for Luongo.

But by the end of the NHL's trade deadline on April 3, the Canucks were unable to move the goaltender.

The Canucks signed Luongo to a 10-year, $64 million contract in 2010 with a cap hit of $5.333 million per season.
