Roberto Luongo sidelined with groin injury

The season has not even officially started, and Roberto Luongo will already miss some time with a groin injury.  The injury appears to be a mild “tweak” and will hold him out of the next two pre-season games, giving way to the 8.00 GAA of Cory Schneider and the recently signed Eddie Lack.

This news seems like something you hold your breath for.

Luongo will hopefully start the final pre-season game against the Anaheim Ducks as he prepares for a season without the burden of captaincy weighing him down.  Just a few weeks ago we were quite bullish on him.  Unless this injury keeps him out past this original diagnosis, we feel Bobby Lou will be just fine.
