Throat Slashers and Arm Chair GMs 7

Throat Slashers and Arm Chair GMs

It seems everyone and their dog has an opinion on what to do with Luongo. Most recently the goalie graveyard theory has resurfaced and now everyone and his dog has a package deal in their head in which they want to get rid of Luongo now while he has value (in the order of one year left on his contract) and get something good for him. Ed Willes provides an interesting take on trading Luongo. But his oversimplification and general bandwagon stench makes it clear that he and Iain MacIntyre get together and sulk in a corner on weekends. I...

Season Wrap Up – Missing Since April 21st: Roberto Luongo 23

Season Wrap Up – Missing Since April 21st: Roberto Luongo

I’ve defended Luongo all season. There are people that are saying that I’m completely out of line for what you’re about to read, there are people saying that were it not for Luongo, we would never have gotten where we were. There are people that say it was the defences fault and that he is not to blame. When the regular season is done, it’s gone. What happens in the regular season means nothing. It’s over. Don’t believe me? Look at the San Jose Sharks. Slam dunk case. ln an elimination game, all stats go out the window. Nothing matters...

Public Enemy Number One 12

Public Enemy Number One

Game 3 boasted a Canucks team that we hadn’t seen since the St. Louis series. They were defensively responsible while playing offensive hockey. But just because it was better than games 1 and 2, isn’t reason to go crazy just yet. Public enemy number one right now is Dustin Byfuglien and that’s no secret. He’s their secret weapon at the moment and about the only part of that team’s game that’s clicking (other than game 2 the ‘Hawks have looked awkward and out of place). He’s placing himself in front of Luongo and having his way in the crease. The...

Goodbye Bandwagon, See you all after Game 3 2

Goodbye Bandwagon, See you all after Game 3

As the bandwagon spills over the edges there are several things which were a bit worrisome in game 2, but there was one or two things to take away from the game. Luongo can now say he’s had his bad game. Get that out of the way, I’m positive he’ll come back stronger and make a statement on the road at the United Center in Chicago. What worries me the most is that with the loss of Salo the defence collapsed quickly. That being said, we’ve seen the Canucks play well during the long stretch he missed during the regular...
