Q. Congratulations on your call to the Hall of Fame. It's only been an hour since you got the news, but how special is it to wrap your playing career this way?. Luongo: It's extremely special, but I feel like it really hasn't hit me yet. It feels a little bit surreal at the moment. When you're playing, you don't play hockey to be in the Hall of Fame, right? You play to win the Stanley Cup. It's only when your career is done that you kind of start thinking about that other stuff. Once my playing career was done, I went right into management. I wasn't really thinking about it. A lot of people brought it to my attention, but on a personal level, it's not something I thought about a lot, maybe a couple of months (ago) when I knew it was around the corner.
