Some of you may not remember this, but way back when, the Florida Panthers used to have a goalie named 'Luongo.' Then they traded said goalie to Vancouver for three players -- only one of which currently remains on the team.
One-sided deal? Sure. Worst trade in franchise history? Yeah, safe to say.
In today's Miami Herald, Dan LeBatard does his popular 20 Questions with Panthers coach/GM Jacques Martin. Lots of good stuff, as JM really seems to open up. But one question in particular is going to set off some alarms around the league and definitely will be brought up today in Nueva York:
Dan: True or false -- the Roberto Luongo trade is the worst trade in the history of your sport?
JM: ``[Laughter] [Pause] True.''
Yeah, people are going to be talking about this. Perhaps even a certain fella up in Calgary.
Will keep you updated.
Oh, here's the column. A good read for all Panther people: DAN THE MAN WITH JM (DOES THAT RHYME?)
