In an “end of season” press conference with the Vancouver media today, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo said he’d be willing to waive his “no-trade” clause this summer if GM Mike Gillis requested it. Luongo became the subject of trade speculation during the Canucks-LA Kings opening round series, when he was supplanted midway through the five-game series by backup Corey Schneider.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: I daresay there’ll be plenty of commentaries and speculation over this in the coming days. We’ll have to wait until this summer, or at least, around mid-June at the earliest, to determine if the Canucks will find a trade partner for Luongo’s service, let alone one he’d consider a suitable destination. Should keep the rumor mill buzzing for the next couple of months.
