Too bad our shooters suck at SO, lu could be 2-0 by now :wink:

Thought the AVs would go with Giggy tonight.

4-0 Canucks.

LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU.......


NHL radio has been buzzing today, 1.) Never-ending Canucks goalie controversy (Is Lu stealing back the #1 spot?) and
2.) Are they giving Lu the "Cody Hogeson treatment" and giving some easy games to look good. :eh:

I just figured maybe they want to have Ginger take on the unbeaten Hawks...

I think Vigneault is putting Lou in just so he can get a win under his belt as he is 0-0-2 on the year, and apart from being beat by a bad goal against Edmonton and in the shootout, Lou has been very good in his two starts.

Well it's all silly (got 2 top-10 goalies? go with the hot hand!)

But then this is a case of 'all publicity being good publicity' imesho.

The fact there have been a gazillion Lou articles over the past 9 months tells GMMG he should wait for the perfect deal.

I mean as if there would be a gazillion articles for a guy who doesn't have megavalue amirite? :mex:

It's a goldarned SWEEPSTAKES!!

haha agreed, Luongo basically stole a point for this team last game, as we had no business going into OT vs LA.

AV just needs to ride out which goalie is playing better, as all his job is to do is try to get a W no matter what.

Agreed. If a deal is coming down soon and Lou happens to lose a 3rd straight to start 0-3, it doesn't exactly look good. Get him a win with the most winnable game in the next week or so.

Being one of the rare ( it seems ) posters around here who is actually a Luongo fan and is sorry to see him go, I'm enjoying this swan song time for Roberto.

I think some people tend to forget what a shit show the Canuck crease was before the Italian stallion.

I love Luongo and I too will be sad to see him go. That he has to go I think is a foregone conclusion. Not just because of Cory either. I think he wants/needs to get back to the East if he can and I think if not now he will trigger his out clause in two years.

I also think that unless MG hits a home run the best time to move him is in the off season. But back to the game....

Notice how Luongo's mask hasn't been re-painted this season. Wonder what that means?

Lou has been nothing but class in what could be an ugly situation. All Canucks fans should respect his attitude over the past 9 months. His @strombone1 twitter account is one of the more amusing of the pro athletes.

He's having a solid game tonight too (so far). Gives AV a tough decision for Friday's tilt...

Maybe he didn't think there'd be a season... or he's just going for the vintage look... or he's going to auction it off as the most expensive piece of game-worn Canucks gear. "Luongo's Last Lid".

Well that was Kassian's hardest goal ever... Nice look from Hamhuis and the Canucks finally pot one on the PP.

Canucks can thank Luongo we are playing .500 hockey and not .200 hockey.
