August may be a slow month in terms of hockey news, but for players preparing for the upcoming season, like Roberto Luongo, it's anything but uneventful.
"To be honest, this is the worst time of the year," Luongo said. "Not only are we skating now, but you're still going to gym, working out every day. It's a lot of work. August is the toughest month because you're doing so much. It lends for some pretty long days. The fun part is being on the ice, knowing it's getting close. But I think this month is more important than training camp because of the work being put in." He is skating at informal workouts now with the first practice of training camp set for Sept. 18.

Roberto Luongo wants to get back into the playoffs this year.

"Last year we weren't quite sure what we were going to get; we had a lot of new faces and a new coaching staff," he said. "This year it's time to take that next step. It's really all about the playoffs for our team; nothing beneath that will be acceptable. I think as a group we realize that and demand that of ourselves." The Florida netminder believes the team "can do some special things in the coming years" because they have plenty of potential.

I wish I would have been better for the guys down the stretch, maybe steal a game or two or more."
