Luongo would consider joining Blackhawks
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Star goalie Roberto Luongo said Friday night in a radio interview that he expects to leave the Vancouver Canucks, and could even end up with the rival Blackhawks.
Luongo was originally scheduled to be on Vancouver's 99.3 the Fox to talk about the World Series of Poker. However, the discussion shifted to hockey and where he might play next season following the Canucks' decision to sign backup goalie Cory Schneider to a three-year, $12 million deal.
"I think it's really time to move on," Luongo said. "I don't think either one of us ... either I demanded a trade or (Canucks general manager Mike Gillis) suggested a trade. It was a mutual understanding that it was time for Cory to take over."
