Roberto Luongo traded to Florida for Jacob Markstrom, Shawn Matthias: The Roberto Luongo era in Vancouver ended today, as the one-time cornerstone Canucks goaltender was traded to Florida for goalie Jacob Markstrom and centre Shawn Matthias. The Panthers will presumably take on the final eight years remaining on Luongo’s contract, which pays the goalie $6.714 million for the next four seasons but has a cap hit of $5.33 million. But it has been reported that the Canucks will pay 15 per cent of Luongo’s salary or about $800,000 per season. The Canucks also sent minor leaguer Stephen Anthony the other way in the trade.

So...will Luongo and Thomas take turns pumping each others tires down there?

I assume that it's legal in Florida, so they can do whatever they want.

There's a service plaza on the Florida Turnpike that's specially set up for that.

The compressed air lines for passenger vehicles deliver up to 80 psi round the clock.

Don't expect Thomas to be employed by the Panthers much longer.

And Thomas traded to Dallas.
