09:31 AM ET 07.08 | There are really only two locations for Roberto Luongo. There would be three if Vancouver would consider trading him to Chicago. Otherwise, it's Florida or Toronto for Luongo. No matter how long this drags on.

Robooby joining the Leafs should have no bearing on the pool results...

I hate to be disagreable so early on a Sunday Stranger but I think Booby will make the Leafs a better team. He might even sneak them into the playoffs.

TGO won't let me date anymore. Go figure.

Chicago/Vancouver in the playoffs with Luongo a Blackhawk would be interesting...

Can someone remind me. Why did Luongo leave Florida. I honestly don't remember. Was it money? Or wanting to play for a contender?

A. Don't remember? Join the crowd. B.Was it money? failed contract negotiations. C. Contender? Close but no cigar.

Mike Keenan was the GM at the time and he has always claimed it was an ownership decision so cash or their lack of it would have been the main reason for him leaving.

Got to go with Canuck on this. They won't be making the playoffs but they will hang around longer.

And he'd fit good there with their young nucleus that needs to learn how to win to get to the next level. He could definitely help them get there
