Are you kidding? AV is clueless.
You do know that we are trying to trade Luongo right? So far from "meaningless", by AV hanging Luongo out to dry is just reducing the return on Lu in the summer, as his save% & GAA are going in the wrong direction.
Ahhhh, he's untradable, get a bag of pucks or buy him out and move on, he had his time and his chance here.
Guaranteed the team put the game behind them already so maybe you should too...
Sure, if the Canucks blow through the first 2 rounds easily and nobody gets injured.
Otherwise, we'll all be thinking about the players that we COULD HAVE GOTTEN for Lu at the beginning of the year, and the drama still hasn't played out.
I'm happy that we are finally playong meaningful games, and I'm more optimistic than some here.
But it still doesn't change the fact that AV is a tool, and he was pissing away Lu's value for no good reason.
Nope, it is pretty much established he was never going to be moved before the season because of the uncertainty of the lock-out or the trade-deadline because of the stupid desperation.
And it is far better to stock the cupboards than to get help.
There is no coulda, shoudla, woulda, this is the team we have. Deal with it. It's pretty good. They think so, many think so. No pressure on them now. Their time to show us or then changes will be made and we can debate it after June.
What is Luo's value? A former #1 goalie that has a history of choking in the playoffs and an Olympic Gold medal?
We will get a couple of 2nds and a minor (league) addition, most would be happy with that but that won't help us now, during the past season or even next year.
