LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: NO APOLOGIES

Postby B. Mackin » Sat Apr 05, 2008 10:45 pm

No apologies for any of my comments about Roberto Luongo's lousy season.

Overpaid? Cynics would say so. I'm not going to agree to that.

Overrated? It's arguable. He's the only player on the Canucks who consistently does anything that deserves to be labeled "spectacular." Amazing talent, skill and potential. I'm glad he's here... well, maybe he could have learned something from Linden and answered all questions from reporters with a smile. He's not a great ambassador of the game.
I'd be glad if we don't hear him called "the best in the league" anymore. He hasn't proven himself to be so.

Overplayed? Absolutely. He had no offensive support and an injury-riddled defense. He had a coach who did not know how to manage his schedule. Curtis Sanford wasn't just there as an insurance policy in case of injury, but he should've been given at least five more starts. At least.

and the good news... End of the Naslund era... One Captain lead this team with guts and skill to a Stanley Cup final.. One choked every year.. Kudo's to Linden, the hero of 94, and goodbye Naslund you tried hard at times. Nice guy ... but nice guys finish out of the playoffs :(

The great thing about the end of an era is the legend.

Linden should be talked about in high regard & that type of player should be passed down to our children. And keep talking about him. We are still a young franchise & need legends like him. Hell if he played for the Leafs & did what he did in 94.....2 huge goals in game 7...one short handed while fighting off the Conn Smythe Trophy winner for a lengedary goal......he would be HOF material....

Where are the Trevor Linden type players today?

I shed a tear as well
