Roberto Luongo already fitting in with old mask

All Roberto Luongo had to do was dust off one of his old Panthers' masks to fit right in with his new team. SB Nation's GIF Tournament V

One of the awkward moments for goalies immediately after they're traded is hitting the ice with their new team wearing their old equipment, particularly a mask.

Sabres mask with Blues pads. Wild jersey with an Oilers mask. Ducks mask with an Oilers jersey. It just looks ... funny.

But that's not going to be a problem with Roberto Luongo in Florida because all he has to do is dust off one of his masks from his previous stop with the Panthers, which is exactly what he did on Thursday in his first practice with his new team.

It's the Pink Panther mask.

Unfortunately for Dan Ellis, the Panthers' other new goalie, he isn't fitting in jet yet.
