With all trades on hold due to the NHL lockout, speculation surrounding Vancouver Canucks‘ goaltender Roberto Luongo and where he will wind up has been gaining speed.
Don Cherry officially opened up and shared his thoughts on the Luongo-to-Toronto situation and he can’t see why Roberto Luongo would possibly want to come play for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“Why would he want to come here and step into the same thing as Vancouver? Every time they lose, it’s his fault. He only took them to the seventh game (of the 2011 Stanley Cup final). How many goaltenders have taken them to the seventh game?” Don Cherry said. “I don’t think he wants to step into a real hotspot like here. I think he wants to go to Florida because his wife comes from Florida.”
