wont happen , be realistic and maybe Kulikov or heck i think Brian Campbell would be perfect for both teams , Both players are 33 and we got off with only 4 years left in his deal for 7 and we get a real puck moving dman that can QB the powerplay

Kulikov is 21.

Roberto Luongo to Blackhawks not happening

The rumors that Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo could end up in Chicago are so far off the mark that they're worth a good laugh, says Daily Herald columnist Barry Rozner. Several online reports and endless Twitter postings gave the rumor plenty of legs Sunday night.

Every once in awhile, there are rumors so absurd that they literally make you laugh out loud.

This happened Sunday night when my Twitter feed was filled with questions about the Blackhawks’ supposed interest in goalie Roberto Luongo.

ADVERTISEMENT

The response via email and Facebook was similar, and much was made of how concerned I would be if the Hawks dealt for the goofy goaltender.

So where to start …

First of all, I don’t dislike Luongo as I do so many Vancouver Canucks.

He’s just a sad case, a horribly overpaid netminder who performs horribly in the most important of situations.

He chokes when the pressure is at its worst, which is basically any time he’s expected to compete, especially in the playoffs.

Once a hero in Canada, he’s now a national joke.

So, you must ask yourself, why would the Hawks be interested in a guy who folds in the playoffs?

If the Hawks wanted to replace Corey Crawford — and at this point there’s no evidence to suggest they do — why would they replace Crawford with a guy who’s awful during the postseason and is six years older with twice the cap hit?

Now, if you said the Hawks were sniffing around soon-to-be-ex-Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, that would actually make some sense, because they’d be kicking the tires on a guy who has won a Stanley Cup and handles pressure as well as anyone ever has.

But Luongo? He crumbles at the mere thought of playoff hockey.

At the same time, Hawks fans would give him a free pass if he came to Chicago — until the first time he let in a bad goal, and then he would be booed as loud as he was when he was wearing a Canucks jersey.

Hawks fans would be cruel, unusual and merciless.

On top of that, Luongo has a no-movement clause and perhaps the last place on the planet he would want to play — this side of Boston — is the United Center, where he has been treated like the weak-minded goalie he is.

No, Chicago isn’t a good fit.

Then, there’s the ridiculous contract. Luongo is in the midst of a 12-year deal worth $64 million, which pays him $6.7 million annually through 2017-18 (with a cap hit of $5.33 million), before it drops in the final years.

If GM Stan Bowman wasted that much cap space on a goaltender who is certain to fall apart in the postseason, he should be immediately fired.

Whether or not you like Bowman, you can’t possibly think him this vapid.

So how did this rumor get started?

It would not be shocking if at some point during draft weekend that Bowman and Vancouver GM Mike Gillis had a conversation about the weather.

In the process, maybe Gillis jokingly said, “You want Luongo?”

And Bowman said, “Maybe if he waives his no-trade, if you pay his entire salary and we don’t have to give up a bag of pucks in return. And even then, probably not.”

Then, they went back to talking about the weather.

The Hawks know better than just about any team that Luongo wilts under the hot lights, and the heat in Chicago would be intense.

So rest assured there is absolutely no chance this will happen, and it’s more likely I would be handed a key to the city of Vancouver.

Yeah, as rumors go, this is one of the strangest I’ve ever heard.

But, hey, the laugh was well worth it.

Imagine if Chicago lost in the final to the Bruins the same way we did last year. Think about how funny it would be to watch/read their media go at it with one another.

Chicago's Jack Edwards?

something from the actual Mark Spector:

"Dear Canucks fan,
From the sounds emanating from inside Rogers Arena of late, we were wondering: When did you give birth? We hadn't even known of your pregnancy, but yet we keep hearing the sounds of crying babies.
Please excuse our inattentiveness to your ever-growing needs. We'll start shopping for a gift immediately.
What's that? The baby needs a new goaltender?
Well, sure ... But we thought you already had a Canadian Olympic team starter, complete with the Vezina and Jennings dress-up bundle. Can't we just send along the camper? Or the puppy waterpark set?
Oh, that's not good enough for the Vancouver baby? They want more than that? We see.
Well, maybe Senators fan can look around his place and find a superior goaltender to send out as a shower gift. Let's see ... Craig Anderson ... Nope. Alex Auld ... Woah - definite nope there.
No, nothing here even resembles your 'B' goalie. You know, the Cory Schneider one that comes with the G.I. Joe haircut.
Maybe Jets fan can help. He'll start searching for the perfect goalie for Canucks fans, right after he finds HIS SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON. Leafs fan can courier out The Monster - but he's proven to be even scarier than his name would suggest. Definitely not appropriate for a baby the likes of the one in Vancouver.
Oilers fan? You haven't even made the playoff in five years. Can you spare some empathy for those poor souls in Vancouver, who have been forced to soldier on with only Roberto Luongo in their goal, the poor kids?
Well, Canucks fan, it looks like this may take more effort than we'd thought. We'll continue to scour the country in search of the perfect cherry to rest atop that championship-calibre sundae you have in Vancouver, and we won't rest for a moment until YOU are happy.
And we'll hurry up. Because, of course, we wouldn't want you to get impatient and trash your downtown core or anything.
In the meantime, buy a soother. The whining and crying is killing us out here.
Signed,
The rest of the country."

I can't believe people are suggesting Campbell.. his contract is gomez bad. Luongo addresses Floridas goaltending issue, but the nucks are overloaded on D! I was just getting excited at the prospect of ballard getting a shot (finally)... Campbell is a poor mans ehrhoff with the same ridiculous price tag. If the canucks wanted to overpay an offensive D, 'hoff would still be in a canucks jersey

Typical Eastern media lambasting the Canucks. Luongo has had his shortcomings in the playoffs, but Rozner just comes across as jealous of Vancouver's goaltending situation. I don't see many goalies that "fall apart" lead their team to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Also:
"Lupien says there have been alot of inaccurate reports in the media about his client."

p.s. the all is quiet reference may refer to all the cheapening noise going on - and a metaphor for how it effects players in a situation like this...

Agreed, most agents/coaches/GMs try to hide things by saying stuff like "all quiet on trade talks" or "There's been no contact by any teams on that player" IMO, they are getting alot of phone calls in regards of the player or players.

@News1130Sports: #Canucks goalie Roberto Loungo's agent Gilles Lupien tells us that all is quiet on the trade front.


How does he know? Trades are conducted between teams. The player doesn't get involved until asked to waive NTC, or TOLD that he has been traded.

EDIT: Watch Moneyball to get a poignant experience of what its like as a player to get traded.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Enough of this crap.

Trade both Cory and Luo and start Eddie next season.

That should be mildly amusing.

Not really. I dont think I can attack a forward for having a 3.5 GAA in a series.

But again maybe that is just me

Oh please, you know what I mean. Don't deflect what I'm trying to say like that. It just makes you look immature.

If you seriously didn't understand what I was trying to say, then try something like this:
"Kesler[or any other forwards that were supposed to score]'s production was virtually non-existent against X series in the playoffs"
"Edler played like a forward who couldn't score and didn't understand what 'defending' means"

Basically, what you're blaming on Luongo, should and can be blamed on any Canuck players. You can probably even do the same thing with AV if you wanted.

My real point is that to pick on Luongo like that is irrational because it was a team-wide failure not just him. As I've said earlier, you haters are irrational. Just like the fans.
