Cap recapture is pretty minimal for FLA, it's moreso for VAN. But I'm glad it was decided not to pull the LTIR bullshit.

Gonna miss seeing him play. He's one of the best characters to ever take the ice, and I'm certain he'll get a job in media, but I'm sad he didn't get a Cup win as he absolutely deserved to get his name on there at least once.

Shame he just missed that elusive Cup.

Hall of Fame or just Hall of Very Good? Not sure how his numbers stack up.

Oh god yes he is a hall of famer.

Definitely sucks that he didn't get a Cup.

Hockey is less fun without Luongo. Hopefully he gets into broadcasting.

He gets in the Hall, only question is if he gets in his first try. I think he will.

Now the OTHER question. I'm assuming his number gets retired in Florida. Does it go to the rafters in Vancouver? I say no, but he's a ring-of-famer for sure.

1st time HoF, Ring of Fire in Vancouver. I will always hate Torts for how he handled him, should have finished his career here.
