So what do the Canuck players have to say on all of this? Well, I obviously don't know what they all say but from what I am hearing, yes, gossip, it is pretty supportive. Things like:
Surprise not shock that CS was traded.
Hard to see him go just as it would be hard to see Luongo go.
Confident no matter who has the net.
Luongo needs a few days and will get all the support he needs from his teammates.
Thrilled he is still a Canuck and has his team to lean on.
Shocked that Luongo could not get traded and that no team took a chance on a goalie of his skills.
Will rally around him and be there when he reaches out.
See no problems in the dressing room or on the ice.
Wish CS the best, he is a great goalie and a better person.
Knew one of them was going so a sad day no matter who got traded.
Understand the business side of the game.
So it seems they are saying pretty well what we are saying. Surprised as we were but also very glad to still have Luongo on the team. Also sounds like his teammates have his back. I think they will continue to reach out to him. One player allegedly sent him a text telling him he could sleep on his couch if need a place to stay. LOL. I mean the waterboy can't do anything financially at this point to help him re-move back into his condo as that would be cap circumvention. Good to know his teammates have it covered.
