Even though this has nothing to do with what this thread is actually about,
Rinne had some of the worst luck tonight i've seen in a while! So many tips, deflections, and weird bounces
Not that it matters or anything

Replace the words "Rinne" with Luongo, and "Lindback" with Schneider and you'll get it. It's a joke to show how funny ridiculous our own fans look when they say these things.

Pekka Rinne is washed up. He just isn't the same goalie anymore. This goes back to last season's exit from the playoffs. One man basically owned him (Ryan Kesler). He is supposed to be an elite goalie but he couldn't even beat lousy Luongo in a 7 game series. He could not even help his team past the Canucks when the Preds had the Sedins completely shut down. He's a flopper. He has poor positioning. He is slow. His glove hand is weak, his blocker is weaker, and everyone can see into next Tuesday through his 5-hole.

Now this? .750 on 16 shots? Clearly he is terrible. Lindback is ready. We need to trade Pekka Rinne for a 2nd rate player while he has any value.

Pekka Rinne is garbage and the Predators should give up on him. They will never win a cup with him. He is not a playoff performer. He is mentally weak. He crumbles under pressure.

Next time I go to a game that Pekka Rinne gets scored on (even if they are good goals) I will boo him mercilessly. He deserves it and it will make his job harder. Which is what I want to do. I HATE him and I want him to do poorly so that I will feel better about myself and my accurate judgements of his poor play.


You forgot to mention that you will drive him to jail if he lets in a bad goal. Cause in terms of hockey law, letting in a bad goal will get you sentenced for life. :)

Most of the Predator fans we heard from in the play offs were very classy towards our team. The OP is the exact opposite. This is why Canucks fans are hated through out the league.

Wrong, he makes 2 mill more then Luongo.

I think Luongo will be traded to Ottawa for 5th round pick + cash considerations, before the trade dealine.

Can't be surprised. Skill wise Luongo is debatably the least talented goalie in the NHL. He should be playing in a lower division somewhere in Europe (div. II or III).

It's a shame that the Twins will never have an elite winger to play with because we've spent that money on a no-win goalie.

luongo will have played his way back to florida by the time the christmas break rolls around.

This is why we can't have nice things...

Each goalie gave up a BAD goal btw.

Also, bad goals are a much more common occurrence with Luongo (pretty much at least one per night most nights) than Rinne, so your comparison is faulty sir.


EDIT: Not that I support booing your own goalie by any means, how the *&^% is that going to help the situation?



Got anything to support that? Otherwise your statement is faulty, sir.
Could it be that maybe, just maybe, you watch more games with Luongo than with Rinne? ;)

Actually I think it's the righteous indignation and gross over reactions that play a bigger a role.

YEAH!!! WHAT YOU SAID!!! I remember when Rinne totaly shyt the bed in the games in vancouver and almost let in a total of 20 goals in 3 games!!! ..... Wait Rinne never shyt the bed that bad in the SCF.... wow so he is not like lui at all. Rinne didnt almost lose to the blackhawks for 3 STRAIGHT YEARS. Rinne didnt almost lose to USA in the gold medal game. Rinne isnt a choke artist. He played very well in our series against him I have nothing but respect for him. Lui shyt the bed in Boston so bad that they had 0 respect for us and then they took it to us.

You can depend on lui to do one thing. And thats choke. Stop waving the pom poms you look ridiculous.

And to whomever does not like it.. suck eggs. See you after we lose another heartbreaker this year.

I've been a Canuck fan longer than majority of Canucks fans on CDC have been alive. I stay away from commenting on Luongo. But OP made a good thread and I felt compelled to respond, my thought are


Luongo is the best goalie Canucks have ever had. He deserves a lot more respect than he gets in Vancouver.
