Description: The Canucks have traded goaltender Roberto Luongo and Steven Anthony to the Florida Panthers for Jacob Markstrom and Shawn Matthias, according to Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada.
Insight: Luongo (19-16-6, 2.38 GAA, .917 SV%) played with the Panthers from 2000-06 before being traded to Vancouver. Joining a middling defensive team like Florida won't do much for his fantasy value. It also doesn't make much sense for Florida to pick up a 34-year-old goalie with eight years still remaining on his contract after this season.

Insight: Luongo missed three games with a groin injury before returning Saturday, but he was struck by the leg of Kings forward Dustin Brown in the third period. "My foot got caught under me as he was accidentally running me over," Luongo told reporters after the game. "Luckily this time, the pain went away. It was a tough call. Hockey is a fast game and that's what we want to do to the opposing goalie too -- crash the net and create havoc."

Insight: We don't know the full extent of his injury but we do know the Canucks won't be in action again until Sunday. That gives the 34-year-old almost a week to heal. If he can't go, Eddie Lack would get the start between the pipes.
