The Situation

Luongo should get his due from critics [Province Article]

45 posts in this topic

The Bleacher Report, which is normally pretty solid, ran a list of ‘players who sucked’ in this year’s playoffs, and despite playing very well in the Canucks’ first two losses at home against the Kings, Luongo was fingered on the basis of his goals-against average and save percentage. In two games?

Asking for Luongo haters to give him credit is like asking a rock to speak

I'm happy with whoever we sign, as long as we don't lose both. Be grateful for what you have

Great article. Nothing but the truth.

To be honest, as a huge Canuck fan for over twenty years, I just don't get this fan base (or the majority of it). It's one thing to hate on a player for having multiple poor seasons but Luongo has been a very good goalie for most of his time here, if not all of his time here.

His huge collapses have been the result of our whole team playing poorly, even giving up/getting rattled. How many times has a player walked around our D or a player gotten two or three wacks at a rebound, durning those blowouts. Hell, he even posted two shutouts in the finals plus a few very good close games. Yet he's treated like chop liver.

Hey lookey now.....you want it, you got it. The best goalie we've ever had could be traded away to appease the unknowledgeable knee jerkers.

Just my take on the situation.

I have to say that I very rarely appreciate what Gallagher has to say - he usually has his guns turned inward on this organization - but this is about the best thing he has published in my opinion. I actually agree with him (first for everything) - so many people are underestimating Luongo, making baseless devaluations, and suggesting that his contract is an unmovable entity. Luongo has been a consistently productive goaltender - there are some halfwits out there who think a goaltender should never have a bad game, should never get caught out of position, should be infallible... He had great games and off games like every other guy, but generally gives his team a chance to win on a consistent basis. Those people running Luongo down haven't watched enough goaltenders perform over a long period. Schneider's incredible poise, positioning, and technical efficiency have given too many people in this town the misperception that being Luongo's equal is no formidable task. Canucks fans have enjoyed some of the best goaltending in the NHL for some time, and have come to take it for granted.

To suggest that no other team would want him is to suggest that the NHL is populated by idiots at the GM position.

Luongo has been instrumental in making the Canucks the powerhouse they are today. He has done this amazing feat with an average defensive corps. Many of the "soft" goals Luongo has let in have been after defensive breakdowns, which happen far more frequently.

With idiots like Jason Botchford stirring the pot, we have a certain portion of Canucks fans calling for Luongo to be traded.

If the Canucks can acquire one or two (please) No. 1/Top 4 defenseman (Weber, Garrison, Wideman, Franson, Schenn) while shedding the average ones (Edler, Rome, Alberts) Luongo can still bring this city a Stanley Cup.

Along with Schneider and the Sedins, Luo was excellent in an otherwise brutal series.

Who cares about this sh?

Most people should be concerned about what to do with their Luongo jerseys when he becomes a friggin' Maple Leaf!

Me? I'm hand-stitching my own 'McLean' name plate. Good times, Roberto. But if you become a Maple Leaf, you're dead to me. Cheers.

God Tony is a moron.

Can this guy go follow another team. He has no idea what he's talking about.

Go on another Boston radio station and embarrass yourself again or something.

seems like toronto always in on every trade lol, wonder how much they actually are in on the trades they are rumored to be in on. Dreger and the rest of maple leafs fanboys are just feelers for the public to see how they would respond to the trade. You guys really think Luongo is going to be a leaf jus cause samjam99 tweeted it, is this kid Maebe Funke or something. Sure he broke some trades like 30 mins or hour before they happened, but now its like a month before it will happen, and this is the only kid that has the scoop, I doubt it.
