G -Roberto Luongo
Roberto Luongo Played for the Panthers from 2000-2006.
Had the Panthers kept Luongo rather than trade him to Vancouver, in possibly the worst deal in NHL history, for sure the worst in Panther’s history the goaltender would probably be in contention for a much higher spot in the top ten…
Although Luongo may only have been with the team for a short time, during his time in Florida he developed into one of the premier net-minding talents of the league.
Despite being a goalie, he ranks 16th on the club in games played with 318 and holds most of the goaltending records with the club…
Now why did we trade him again…?….oh yeah
Today Roberto with the Vancouver Canucks is still an elite goaltender, and he is the only current goaltender to be captain of his team and seventh overall in league history…but it does leave some to wonder what would have happened had Luongo stayed around a little longer in South Florida.
Roberto Luongo’s career as a Panthers :
318 GP (No. 16 on club’s all-time list), seven Assists, 26 Shutouts, 108 Wins.
Do you agree or disagree? What was your favorite Luongo moment in a Cat’s jersey?
