But he put butts in seats and stole games for them.

IF some of the Cats young stars take it to the next level this year (likely) Lou could put them over the top

... and into the playoffs (hopefully at the expense of the Leaves). :mex:
No one cares about Luongo in South Florida. He may have stolen games, but they were still bottom feeders.

I'm talking about a consistent history of CS outplaying RL.

And how nothing has changed.

Screw the preseason for all I care. The question I posed was whether anyone would prefer Luongo's start to Cory's.
Such as the playoffs last year?

Speaking of slow starts, it took less than one game last season for Lou to take away the starting goaltender spot.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I just checked the stats at NHL.com.

Among starters with 6+ starts, Luongo is presently SECOND IN SV% AND WINS!! :shock:

Perhaps there is something that can be done w/ Buffalo for Miller. 2 premiere goalies who need new addresses.
Hell yeah! :lol: :D

But there is one constant:

Anyway, the Canucks' apparently created a new position last season that apparently put the Crow's bro as head of both pro and amateur scouting, via: http://thecanuckway.com/2013/06/29/ron- ... -scouting/
Delorme remains as the team’s Chief Amateur Scout, but [Eric] Crawford’s title is now Director of Player Personnel and will have final say on who the Canucks draft.
Contrary to the article, I do believe, I do believe, that the GM has the final say. :mex:

Well even more contrary to the article if you look at the order of Scouting Staff listed here:
http://canucks.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=86312

Delorme is still the first person listed with Crawford listed after all the amateur scouts. From my perspective that implies he may be responsible for the professional scouts.

Read the original article I linked to. It's quoting directly from a Vancouver Sun article that's no longer online that stated the following:
Crawford, who had overseen the Canucks’ pro scouting department, was put in charge of amateur scouting. Chief scout Ron Delorme retained his title but was returned to the WHL because, as assistant general manager Laurence Gilman explained, the team needed its best scout back in the West. WHL scout Harold Snepsts was redeployed to help senior adviser Stan Smyl assess undrafted college and junior players, and the Canucks bulked up their scouting staff in Ontario.
I guess we can speculate that the fruits of the redeployment of Delorme is that we have not seen one but two WHL prospects being drafted in the 1st round by the Canucks in back to back years. :mex:
