It was only a matter of time before Roberto Luongo chimed in.

The Florida Panthers‘ 38-year-old goalie was left exposed by the club ahead of the expansion draft, and took to Twitter to sympathize with the Vegas Golden Knights’ tough decision ahead:

Vegas must select one player from each team, and Luongo crossed himself off the list.

Considering the ‘tender’s $4,533,333 salary-cap hit through 2021-22, it’s a safe bet Luongo will be in Florida next season and beyond. But you can’t fault the guy for making sure. Or trying to, at least.
