Future Hab visits Montreal?

  • The Canadiens are looking to rebound after dropping 2 points in 2 consecutive overtime losses to the Pens and Leafs. Of course anything less than 2 shut outs by Jose Theodore gives fuel to the ever present Roberto Lungo trade rumor.

    Luongo’s unhappiness in Florida is no secret. Maybe the league’s best goalie after Martin Brodeur, he will no doubt challenge for the top spot on Canada’s Olympic team. Playing on a very sub par Panthers team has taken its toll on Luongo the same way playing for the Thrashers did for Dany Heatly. Luongo filed for salary arbitration this summer and did not come out on top. It’s only a matter of time before he’s gone.

    Where to? Luongo is a Montreal native, another in the pool of excellent Quebec goaltenders. Montreal being his home town and a new competitive force in the NHL might be where he wants to be. Obviously it won’t be that easy. The Panthers would want substantial returns for a top tier goalie. Michael Ryder’s name comes up, but I find it hard to believe they’ll let him go and will come up with another offer.

    Luongo will be showcasing his best stuff tommorow night for Montrealers and Theo Haters to see.

    Could it really happen? Montreal turns its back on its favorite son Jose? Bob Gainey has surprised us before.
