Storybook

31 posts in this topic

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.

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!
