Florida has their future number goalie in the system and he looks to be the real deal and that I think has the biggest impact on whether or Florida goes for Luongo. Look how Tallon built the hawks, he built it slowly and only went for impact players when they were ready for the cup drive. Panthers are several years away from that and are building slowly. For me. Luongo to florida more or less comes down to when will Jacob Markstrom be ready to start in the NHL. Some people say he will be the full time back up in 13/14 and by 14/15 he is the starter--Florida will find themsleves in the same situation Vancouver is in
