Roberto Luongo: Chicago's definitely one of them
"I'd rather not talk specific right now," Luongo told CFOX-FM 99.3. "I've always said I like playing in Chicago."
A Red Wings fan called into the show trying to convince Luongo that his best shot at winning a Cup is in Chicago and wondered if he would ever play here.
"That's a good question," Luongo said. "I think there's a lot of cities that are great to play in, and Chicago's definitely one of them. But you have to realize that it works both ways. There's not only me involved in this decision. It's also a question if the Blackhawks would be interested, if the team would be interested in trading me there, and if I would be willing to go there."
Later in the show the host asked Luongo about Chelsea Dagger, his reponse: "I like that song -- it's catchy," Luongo said. "I heard it seven times in one game."
Take a step back: In retrospect, Luongo did state that this was his first interview since the L.A. Kings ended his season, it's also obvious that the list of teams interested in his services is a very short list. Read between the lines. Whether the Blackhawks are actually interested in him really holds no water yet, and this could just be a case of his camp "pumping tires" to reach out to teams and hoping someone takes another look. In other words, take it with a grain of salt.
At the same time, there's a lot of smoke behind this rumor at the moment and it wouldn't surprise me to see Stan Bowman look elsewhere after failing to woo Marty Brodeur away from the New Jersey Devils. If Stan is going to make this move, he will either find himself in the unemployment line at this time next year, or nominated for GM of the Year. It's a risk, but this wouldn't be the first time a GM tried to save their job after receiving a lot of pressure from the top of the front office.
Regardless, Stan isn't really known for taking big risks and Luongo is probably the biggest he can take. The contract coupled with the fact that he is portrayed as the villain in Chicago certainly works against him from both a marketing standpoint and a business standpoint. Then again, the Blackhawks did take a similar risk on Carcillo, granted that wasn't as much of a financial risk, but Chicago fans didn't really have a huge issue with that. It seems like a long-shot, but certainly not impossible.
