It's moments/time's like these where legends are built and storybooks are written. As a not a huge Lou fan, moreso bc its easy to forget how terrific a goalie and person he is and focus on the bad stuff the media throws in our faces I do think this would be something for the ages....

1. Season starts Mid Jan
2. Lou stays in Van as a backup as trade value we see coming back isn't great
3. Less media focus after the first few weeks as attention on him has disapated given the time away
4. Schnieds plays well but they split games with Lou playing hot as we enter a shortened season playoff.
5. Lou carries us to a cup win (shortened/asterisk who cares) and wins the Conn Smythe

Wouldn't that be something? A storybook of vidication for a man who really deserves it.

If he doesn't stay, which I think is most likely. I do hope he gets another shot. He is a terrific hockey player, was great for the community, and deserves better treatment from Vancouver for all he has done on and off the ice.

It's been said numerous times that if Luongo was still in Vancouver once the season had started, that him and Ginger would fight for the #1 position.
People who keep claiming Luongo has lost his starting position in Vancouver are ignorant.
Luongo Vs Schieder - Luongo wins that fight all day long.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

Love your creativity, you should get it published. Call it what could have been. Cory should get killed in a car crash pregnant with Lou's unborn child right before the playoffs and Lou has to step up and win it for Cory.

Lou deserves a cup, a holiday and a street named after him in Vancouver
I hope he gets it.
He then deserves to be traded to florida because that is where he would love to be most after a cup win.

Would have been great to see Luongo come back and win it for us, but at this point we have to be realistic.

On one hand we've got an aging goalie who hasn't played consistantly for 5 years and has been downright horrible at the most important times. On the flip side we've got a young guy who has more than paid his dues, given us nothing but stellar play everytime we put him on the ice over the last 2 years nomatter who we're playing against or what kind of pressure he's under. We've got a playoff performer vs a playoff disappearing act. A reasonable contract vs. a ball and chain. A well spoken goalie vs. one that has put his foot in his mouth repeatedly in front of media and opposition. A guy who keeps a cool head nomatter whats going on vs. a guy who collapses if the breeze hits him just right.

Its blatantly unfair for people to continue to cling to Luongo when Schneider has earned the job so many times over and Luongo has been completely unable to respond. Don't we want to be able to tell our young players that the spot on the team goes to the guy who earns it? How can we do that if Luongo continues to be our #1 goalie, nomatter how badly his "backup" is outplaying him?

If MG decides to keep Luu for this season, we really need to win games and make it deep into the Playoffs. Although I'm not a Luongo fan, I'm pretty sure everyone would be happy seeing him winning the cup if he was the starter. Did we ever come so close in 2011!

Not clinging, I am a Schnieds fan, have stated that many times. Just as time as progressed, the frustration of the finals, last year's first round has worn off and allowed me to have more objectivity, perspective on Lou's contribution.

Schnieds is the guy we go with, and I said that we should 2 years ago when Lou's value was at its peak, but as man, a competitor, a Canuck, this guy has bled for our team, done alot in the community, really elevated a crap team into a contender, and it would be really nice to see him vindicated, as a person, and give the fan's and media a big 'in your face'...

Nice life "BRO"

Easy. I actually meant it literally - maybe I should have added an appropriate emoticon ( ::D ?).
I've actually stated many times in the past that Luongo is better than the fans treat him and even started a thread similar to this one (comparing Luongo's career with Thomas's career a few seasons back).

It's all good.

Edit: sorry about the "tough guy" comment - that was rude.

It's not impossible. I don't recall Luongo ever officially demanding a trade - he merely stated that he wouldn't stand in the way of one if that's what management wanted and if it benefited the team.

That interview doesn't have any definitive conclusions as to whether or not Luongo will be traded. It has Luongo and Gillis both saying it could go either way. You can read into it whatever and however you want to but there are no hard answers in there at all.

As far as I see it, Noheart and Nino simply look to be pointing at the probabilities - probably about 20-1 in their favour.
