Roberto Luongo wants to play for the Florida Panthers as soon as possible.

Roberto Luongo will very soon be playing for the Florida Panthers.

What part of this do folks not understand.

I understand . What I don't see Is negotiations from Florida. Are they just waiting for something? Trying to reduce what they give back somehow?

THIS

But given the fact their goaltending is sucking even worse than expected

... and the fact they can kiss the playoffs goodbye if they don't pull the trigger soon

.... well look for them to cave in the very near future says I.

I got to say at this point I hope we ride the hand we got and keep Lou and Ginger. The Shitehawks will come back to earth soon enough with the goaltending they have. If we stay healthy we got a good shot at the whole magilla.

The dream ain't dead, but last night's performance may have put a dent in it. :roll:

I still don't understand why he started the third period?

That was poor coaching on AV and his crew.

If we've ever seen that a dman needs to come back in this deal I think tonight cemented it. Alberts is a horrid, horrid player - screwed up his coverage almost every time he was n the ice, ran around looking for the hit and got out of position a bunch of times. One game does not make a season I know, but we've seen this before.

Gillis needs to get some defensive depth better than what we've got right now. He also needs a LH center to take draws in the D zone, a guy like Fillpula who seems on his way out in Detroit would fit the bill as he can play both C and LW.

Why would you take Luongo out for the third? We all know who is in goal next game.Why take a chance on an injury to Snieds? Nothing wrong with AV

The hole didn't look that big in the 2nd intermission. By the time the score got silly, there was no point. May as well let Luongo soak this one up and keep Schneids fresh.

Now I am not an Alberts fan but it was his first game in over 300 days. Thats almost a full year. He was hardly the reason we got blown out tonight. Did he play like shit? Ya, but so too did almost everyone else. The bigger problem is only Tanev can play the right side. It seems our highly paid 4 million + D'man on the left can't switch to save their lives. So I agree we need to change up the defence somehow. But not because of Alberts, he has been fine in the past filling in here and there, gets into trouble when he becomes a regular, playing over his head. But I certainly didn't expect anything from him tonight but trouble given his lack of playing time.
