Florida Panthers: Roberto Luongo Suffers Through Condensed Season

On March 4th, 2014, the Florida Panthers conducted a trade with the Vancouver Canucks to acquire their star goaltender: Roberto Luongo.

After originally being traded from the Cats to Vancouver eight years ago, it was time for the goaltender to come back to the Sunshine State.

While the move made sense at the time for Florida, as time has passed, the presence of Roberto Luongo has started to become a burden.

To jump ahead to the 2017-18 season, Luongo came back from an injury suffered against the New York Islanders in December to help the Panthers get back into the playoff race.
