Roberto Luongo Trade Rumors: Vancouver Goaltender Would Be Happy With Trade To Chicago

During a radio interview on Friday, Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo said he would enjoy playing for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Roberto Luongo, who lost his starting job with the Vancouver Canucks to Cory Schneider, told a Fox radio station in Vancouver on Friday that "I think it's time to move on" and didn't rule out a deal to the Hawks.

"I'd rather not talk specific right now," Luongo told CFOX-FM 99.3. "I mean, there's a lot of stuff going on ... I've always said I like playing in Chicago."
