It appears Roberto Luongo could be back in the Florida Panthers’ lineup with only five games remaining in their regular season, at least that’s according to a report in the Sun Sentinel.

Luongo has missed the last three games after he was run over by Carolina Hurricanes forward Radek Dvorak in a game back on March 27. Dvorak was ejected from the game as a result of a heavy collision with Luongo, who was in his goal crease trying to defend Dvorak as he charged to the net.

Luongo was ruled out of Florida’s next game against the Montreal Canadiens – two days after the run-in with Dvorak.

The return of Luongo, reacquired by Panthers in a blockbuster deal with the Vancouver Canucks the day before the trade deadline, would mean Scott Clemmensen would be sent back to San Antonio in the American Hockey League.

“Regardless of where I’m at or who I’m playing for or what the circumstances are I’m going to try my hardest so that when the summer comes whatever happens happen I can live with. I’ll have no regrets,” Clemmensen told the Sun Sentinel.

“ll do whatever I can to further my career. If it doesn’t happen then at least I’ll know I did everything possible.”

    Sure … and will Luongo’s swank ‘overpriced’ paper-mache condo sell by 2018 ?

    The answer is ‘no’ friends … just as sure as the answer is ‘no’ in terms of whether the Panthers will ever make the playoffs again before this idiot’s contract expires in 2092 !

    FU Luongo ! … seriously
