The trade: The Florida Panthers traded Roberto Luongo, Lukas Krajicek, and a sixth-round pick to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Todd Bertuzzi, Alex Auld, and Bryan Allen. (2006)

The aftermath: Oh yes, Luongo’s first stint in net for Florida. That stretched ended with quite well for the netminder, who headed to Vancouver to become a pillar for the competitive Canucks team

we know so well from the early 2000s.

In return for the goalie and company, the Panthers got a troubled Bertuzzi, who only lasted a handful of games before being shipped off to Detroit, (and then Anaheim, and then Calgary, and then

back to Detroit.) Luongo has since returned to Florida and has been bit by the injury bug on a couple occasions. But back in 2006, he came out on the good end of a bad trade for the Panthers.
