Report: Panthers are frontrunners to land Luongo
The Florida Panthers are the frontrunners to acquire Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo as talks between the two teams have intensified, according to TSN. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs chances of landing the 3-time All-Star have diminished.
The 33-year-old played in Florida for 5 seasons, compiling a 108-154-41 record until being shipped to Vancouver in a 6-team trade. He is under contract until the 2021-22 season with an annual cap hit of $5.3 million.
