Panthers hot for Luongo
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Florida Panthers are serious about bringing back Roberto Luongo to South Florida, one league source told TFP on Sunday.

Speaking on the basis of anonymity, the source indicated that Luongo is now only willing to waive his no-movement clause to Florida, where he spends his off-seasons.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are also among the teams extremely interested in acquiring Luongo, who has 10-years left on his contract, but unless the veteran netminder changes his mind in the near future, that doesn't appear to be a possibility.

It's believed the Vancouver Canucks are demanding a package that includes center Nick Bjugstad, something the Panthers are not willing to do.

Bjudstad, 19, was drafted 19th overall by the Panthers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He registered 25 goals and 17 assists for 42 points in 40 games with Minnesota in the WCHA.

The Canucks have been trying to trade Luongo for some time, but have been presented with several challenges, the most of which revolve around his no-movement clause. Without his consent, Luongo can veto any trade the Panthers agree to.

Luongo spent five seasons with the Panthers after being traded there by the New York Islanders.
