Report: Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo to submit list of teams for possible trade

Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo, rumored to be on his way out of Vancouver, next week will submit a short list of teams for which he'd waive his no-trade clause, Canada's TSN TV network reported Wednesday night.

The Lightning, in need of a No. 1 goalie, has been mentioned as a possible candidate for Luongo, who Tuesday said he would agree to waive his no-trade clause if team officials asked him to do so.

The Maple Leafs will be on Luongo's list, TSN said.

The Canucks were eliminated from the playoffs by the Kings in Game 5 of their Western Conference quarterfinal Sunday. Luongo did not play in the series after surrendering seven goals on 71 shots in the first two losses.

Cory Schneider started the final three games, giving up four goals on 105 shots with a 1-2 record.

Luongo, 33, signed a 12-year, $64 million contract extension with the Canucks in 2009.

    MINNEAPOLIS — While the Rays made some good defensive plays, threw a couple of big pitches when they needed to and got a few, and just a few, key hits, there were some obvious things they did wrong that led to them losing Saturday's game to the Twins 5-3:
