This just in: There are as many Vancouver Canucks fans who support Roberto Luongo as there are Vancouver Canucks fans who despise him. Cory Schneider will get the start for the Canucks tonight when they take to the ice versus the St. Louis Blues, and head coach Alain Vigneault insists that was the plan from the start following his decision to pull Roberto Luongo midway through the second period in last night’s loss to Edmonton. Now, there isn’t yet developed technology that allows us to see what’s going on in Vigneault’s head, but chances are he’s torn between sticking to...

The Emasculation of Roberto Luongo

The Emasculation of Roberto Luongo

I’m still scratching my head over Alain Vigneault’s decision to start Cory Schneider in game 6 over Roberto Luongo. Yes, Luongo got shelled for 10 goals in games 4 and 5, but how do you blame him exclusively for those losses when the entire team in front of him didn’t show up? Yet, that’s essentially what Vigneault did when he decided to give Cory Schneider his first career playoff start. In the most important game of the Canucks’ season at the Madhouse on Madison. AV is known to say that he’ll play the players he thinks will give him the...

WQF Game 6: Canucks 3 Blackhawks 4

I was pissed off after game 5’s no-show. I’ll admit last night’s loss hurt. The Canucks played a good game. Scratch that, they played their best game of the series. They took the game to the Hawks and had three, separate, 1-goal leads. Cory Schneider was a surprise starter (more on that in a separate post) and was mostly solid, especially on an extended 5-on-3 Chicago powerplay. At least he was until his legs cramped up after failing to stop Michael Frolik on a penalty shot, forcing Roberto Luongo to enter the game. Ryan Kesler, Alex Burrows and Mason Raymond...

Ask Katie about the Canucks: Will the Canucks ever be fully healthy again?

Ask Katie about the Canucks: Will the Canucks ever be fully healthy again?

[Every Monday, Katie Maximick takes your questions and gives her take on the Canucks in her own cantankerous style. If you have any questions about the Canucks, send it to her via Twitter (@KMaximick)] With 6 games left in the regular season, some fans are getting nervous, and with good reason. Because the Canucks have done so well this year, the remaining in the season seems rather futile – really, they’ve clinched already, right? Every game they play fans wonder – and fear – who might get injured just in time for the playoffs. It’s a fair question. There was...

You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@cayking).] Canucks Record 76 GP, 50-17-9, 109 points (1st in Northwest Division, 1st in Western Conference) Who’s Hot Roberto Luongo is ranked 11th in games played in, yet he leads the league with 35 wins. He’s been playing some of his best hockey as of late, he himself says that he doesn’t know of a time where he has felt better. His positional play and “never give up” attitude has allowed him to shine. Allow me to put...
