Luongo To The Leafs, Panthers or Blackhawks

Just when it seemed the Roberto Luongo trade rumors were fading, Vancouver anuck Canucks GM Mike Gillis revived them by suggesting a deal might be close.

During an interview with Cam Cole of Vancouver Sun, Gillis claimed he had “a potential deal in place with one team” but had to wait while that club did something with another player on their roster, adding “it’s not who anybody thinks it is.”

Gillis’ cryptic comments has sparked a guessing game over the identity of the mystery club, as well as the player it has to deal with first.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, Florida Panthers and Chicago Blackhawks have been linked to Luongo in the rumor mill since last summer.
