Maybe fundamentally, Luongo doesn't, want to move. He did sign long term in Vancouver, assuming he'd be staying.
He got thrown under the bus by his own coach in favor of a rookie, but Hodgson was never given a rightful spot by Kesler's injury and Kassian will is a Lucic being turned into a Bernier. What AV pulled usually costs the coach's job promptly.
Luongo then only mentions Florida (home) and Chicago (biggest Canucks rival). To me it sounds as if it is by design he mentioned those teams so as to stay in Vancouver.
Move the kid for some offense and LU'll get you the Cup.
Move LU out and every year the Canucks chances to win a Cup let alone make the playoffs decrease.
LU ought to be heavily motivated to regain his rightful position against a rookie goalie. If so, the cheers will come back fast and all will be forgotten. He's only a few saves from doing so.
Except for the ever hating Vancouver media and its hateful listening fans who will concentrate on hating LU and demand Gillis' head because of an "atrocious" cap hit on goaltending wreason reality, such numbers are more than all of them combined will ever see in a lifetime and therefore do not understand to say the least.
I do realize that 90% of Vancouver fans are of the good kind. That 10% obnoxiously poor and narrow minded, self righteous loser kind is the problem we all face. They are loud, they want to destroy our team and they don't know how to handle adversity outside of firing, giving up as running someone out of town like an 1800's bar murder.
You know who you are.
so let me see if I follow...
shouldn't have traded Hodgson - he never got his rightful spot
fire AV - he threw Lu under the bus
Kassian will be a failure due to AV
Lu is trying to make it difficult to trade him
Without Lu the Canucks will go straight downhill
Hateful media and fans - fans don't make enough money to understand MG or Lu.
90% are good / 10% are the destructive, fire people and run others out of town type.
Something about someone being self aware.
you got the some of the media being hateful part right.
