Luongo won the Jennings with the most stacked D-core this team has ever seen. With the D we had, a goalie just had to be good, not great.

And as for Luongo being fragile. Seems to me he was never fragile until after we made him captain. Which was probably the single worst mistake Gillis has made in his time here. There's a reason why you don't make a goalie captain. These guys have enough pressure on them, they don't need the media coming to them after every game and taking responsibility for a loss. Add to the fact he was playing in a hockey crazed city like Vancouver, and that's when you get mental breakdowns.

With a fresh start, Luongo will be able to shake off al the garbage this city has dumped on him ovger the years, and just play.


C'mon man. Best we ever had doesn't mean a great d-core.

We've never had a great defensive core. They've been good, but never great.

Rumors were flying this summer that a deal with TO was already set up for Lou and would be announced after the lockout is over. So my question is, if its true.... Who will we be seeing going with Lou and who will be returning? If there is any validity to the rumor then Lou should be gone within days....

Never thought I'd be so happy to see a Luongo thread on CDC :)
