Don Les Cherry said it best on HNIC last night... He even referred to him as Roberto and not "Longo" ... LOL
Bush league fans have made Luongo the scapegoat for Vancouver's shortfall... Typical...

Come on dude. He requested a trade. Let him go.

Wow! You must be the inside, inside man since no one else has heard of this.

I agree with NHL owners and players on their hockey opinion over yours. The opinion is that the fans play a part by feeding the media. The media who only cares about the coverage will cover what the majority of fans are saying good or bad. This has been an issue in hockey markets like Vancouver now for ages. Where have you been?

i'd just like to say I love your sig.


as for the "lou" situation, I won't run him out of town, but I won't grovel for him to stay neither. he clearly wants out, just let him leave in peace. we have a stockpile of young, very talented goalies that haven't suffered through a career changing groin tear that are ready for the big show (schneider) or developing and showing loads of promise (Lack [almost there], Climie, and Cannata [maybe the best of the crop in the future]), and a couple that still might turn into something great (Iilahti, and Honzik).

there are plenty of media reports saying he did. If media speculation was good enough to "confirm" Hodgson asked for a trade, surely it's good enough for confirmation that so did Roberto...

Some fans seemingly feel the need to sympathize now that Roberto has been deemed the outcast. The same effect occurs when an underdog is made apparent in various situations.

Regardless, Roberto is the one walking out on the team. I can't see how we should sympathize with him in this situation. He is showing to the city that he has no loyalty or a will to help this team win. He just wants to play where he can be the undisputed starting goaltender. Our strength in goal pushed him out of this city. The team became too successful and plentiful that he decided he no longer fit in.

Imagine that.


Imagine that? What an odd thing to say.

And continually repeating that Luongo is walking out on the team doesn't make it a fact. And your repeated summation of how Roberto feels and thinks, doesn't make it a fact, but rather...an opinionated summation.

Sorry but your logic and reasoning about the Luongo situation is too one-sided for me to be convinced, beyond a reasonable doubt, that he (Luongo) is guilty of being selfish or disloyal to this team.

If you were to state that we get too much wet weather on the coast would be a wise thing to say.

There is no other reason for Roberto to publicly stir controversy by revealing his thoughts to the media on Tuesday. He could have told Gillis in private and allowed him to negotiate with other general managers quietly. Instead, he implied to the rest of the NHL that he believes he should be the one moved.

The next day, information surfaced from Dan Murphy, arguably the most credible Canucks reporter, that Roberto had prepared a list of teams to negotiate with. Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie echoed this information. This was a major advancement from the day before. There was no indication that the team had asked him to waive his NTC; he was submitting this list voluntarily. Overnight, Nick Kypreos reported that Roberto Luongo had asked for a trade. There were no signs of ambiguity in either report. When asked in the morning about it by the TEAM 1040, Mike Gillis did not deny it, insisting only that he would not discuss the matter, and would speak with Roberto this week.

By originally inciting this controversy and then apparently leaking these recent developments to reporters, Luongo has placed an immense amount of pressure on Mike Gillis to trade him. Other general managers are now aware that Roberto wants to leave Vancouver, and will try to pry him away from the team for as little as possible. Gillis will receive less favorable offers now than he would have had Roberto stayed quiet. This does not help the team, and instead pressures Gillis to move Luongo. This is good for Roberto as he is now more likely than ever to leave; the return for him has diminished though, allowing his future team to give up less for him.

Making this ordeal public is a key to why I believe Roberto has put his own interests ahead of the team's. He was not required to tell the media anything that would solicit trade speculation and pressure Gillis to make a move.

WW, I give you credit for stating your pov in a very concise and convincing fashion, you also make a good point on the bolded comments.

Until the whole truth of the matter is resolved, which may never be fully told, I will continue to be loyal to Luongo....even though you and others may find it misplaced or emotional on my part, that's my stance.

Let's just agree to disagree on this particular topic. :)

It bugs me when people pull out the gold medal for an example... Luongo only had to outplay Brodeur.

<br />
Lu doesn&#39; thave a Vezina either and if it had not been for his meltdowns, he likely would have.<br />
<br />
Look, the scouts and coaches have watched Cory for 6 years.  They know everything there is to know about his style,m physical fitness, emotional staet etc.  They obviously believe he has all the pieces to be at least as good as Lu. This assessment is supported by many independent hockey professionals. <br />
<br />
MG is smart enough to know what he has and what it woud cost t replace a talent like Cory&#39;s.  Based on this and LU&#39;s age, histroy and contract, the decision to move Lu makes perfect hockey and business sense. MG has taken as much of the &quot;gamble&quot; out of this decision as he can.<br />

<br />
<br />
</p>

Vezina is for best REGULAR SEASON goalie. Playoff meltdowns have nothing to do with it. Check your facts

I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

First off I am a long time follower of these boards but this is my first post.

My opinion on the whole situation is this:

1. Luongo reveals he would wave his no trade clause IF the Canucks asked him too. Within 24 hours media reports surface that Luongo will give a short list to Gillis next week. Regardless of the source unless it comes from the Canucks or Luongo it is pure speculation.

2. Gillis stated in his address to the media that he will be looking at getting the Canucks younger. He also stated that there was no question on the decision to start Schneider once we were down2-0 because the Canucks, specifically Gillis, wanted to see if he was as good as they thought he was. According to Gillis he is and passed the test. So maybe Cory has not played 60-70 games a season yet but the Canucks are confident that he can. He is younger, quicker, more positionally sound and full of promise and potential.
I mean look at Brayden Holtby! Rookie goalie never played in playoffs and he comes in and eliminates the defending Stanley cup champion Bruins! I have no doubt Schneider is better than Holtby.

3. The fans might pay the salaries of the Canucks but the Canucks are not a publicly owned organization where you can buy a share of the company ex. West Jet. So in actual reality we have absolutely 0 say on who gets traded. Ex. Cody Hodgson being traded. People were irate when it happened but could do nothing to stop it

4.Luongo feels, by his words to the media, that the perverbial writing is on the wall. He knows Schneider is good enough to be a starter and wants to be that man. Luongo is a very proud and competitive athlete and he wants to be THAT guy, the undisputed #1. He doesnt want to share the crease equally.
Luongo brought this team to a level not seen since '94 and for that we should be foeever grateful and appreciative. But even the oilers traded Wayne Gretzky so no one is immune to being moved.

Whatever is going on one thing is certain. This off season will be a very exciting and busy one for our beloved Canucks. I look forward to seeing what Gillis can bring in to keep making this team a top notch and competitive organization.
I know players are leaving and it will be sad to see them go but also exciting to see who comes in to replace them.

Welcome ! Great post.

The only part of your post that made me go nope, was re Gillis "keep making the team a top notch and competitive organization." I can't help feel he had a great team and has lost it, maybe it is because of injuries, but i am not happy with the trades he made this year. Also, the way he brought the "cody hodgson" trade up again, was not a good PR move imho...I don't trust what comes out of his mouth.

regardless of how this situation plays out, it'll reflect poorly on the organization, signing player to long term contract with NTC or NMC means nothing to this organization, they'll find ways to make you waive it ie sitting you demoting you etc etc. so if i'm a free agent that wants stability, do i want to sign with Vancouver?

He's making the decision coz the Fans here in the city doesn't want him to be here?? you damn well know the fans will let him have it if he was unwilling to waive his NTC and we end up trading schneider instead.

I am not in Vancouver(Victoria) but I am telling you all before it is too late someone, somewhere has to start a campaign to stop this insanity and show support for Luongo staying here. You are all gonna regret this when he is gone.

Get on the INTERNET phone RADIO and TV STATIONS, BILLBOARDS , BURN THE DOWNTOWN, (oops nevermind that) SOMETHING YOU FOOLS !!!

For once show Rpberto Luongo some support dammit !

STOP THE MADNESS!!!


The only madness is you thinking you can change Roberto's or Mike Gillis' mind about things. Not going to happen, time to wave good bye to your hero.

No it's because he doesn't want to play second string to Cory as he takes over top spot in the lineup... and who can blame him. You're crazy if you think he gives a rat's azz what you or the rest of us fans think. And every game i go to, the fans chanting Louuuuu after every save are everywhere...the most negative views on him are on this discussion board!

I thank god too... Sentimentalism gets you knowhere, and i dont know the right decision. Thats why GMs get paid. I will be very sad to see lu go, but thrilled to move forward
With whatever our team becomes this summer!

...and if MG catered to the special interst fans that say keep Luongo and he fails to play well while Cory backstops his new team to a cup these asme fans would scream bloody murder and ask for MG's head.

If the emotional fanboys were in charge, Cody H would have replaced Hank as 1st line center and Ehrhoff would be our #1 shut down D man.

This is a sports and business decision to do what is best for the team. Thank God the fans aren't part of the decison-making process.

He didn't 'bring up' the Cody Hodgson trade - he was asked a question by reporters and he answered it. Perhaps you should watch that press conference again.

The Fans and Media are killing the Canucks.. MG will have no option but to move Lu.. The fans and media have made it so bad for him here i can not believe he lasted this long.
what happens when Lu is gone, Lack gets traded because he wants to be a starter and Cannata either doesn't pan out or is traded..
and Cory doesn't want to renew his contract in 4 -5 years because the fans are jumping all over him and calling for his head after every lose and playoff exit saying he was the biggest mistake in Canucks history and we should have kept Luongo...

Luongo wants out and at this point there really isn't a damn thing we can do to stop him.

... and I for one am glad.

As it stands with our defense continuously giving up odd man rushes and allowing other teams to come down on breakaways during a powerplay can you really blame him? And this is in the playoffs mind you when the team is supposed to elevate their game to another level, not completely disappear (aka. Edler). Cory got his first taste of this in OT after Hamhius decided he should try to dangle through everybody and than coughs up the puck and the rest is history.

Its only a matter of time before CS is asking for a trade out of Vancouver.

The only guy who came ready to play come playoff time was Luongo and the team infront of him only let him down. Despite winning the Presidents Trophy the Canucks had a mediocre season and goaltending was the sole reason we finished first.

Cory can play out of his mind next year, maybe we'll win the Presidents Trophy again but make no mistake unless we see some drastic changes in the off season it'll be another early exit for the Nucks.

Lu deserves to play for a city that appreciates him and doesn't throw its best player under the bus.
