WATCH THE GAME. W.o Luongo it would have been over well before the second period.

If Luongo stood on his head in Game 7 the way you claim he did, there would be a SC Banner in the rafters.

So now that Eddie Lack is gone for 6 months after hip surgery and might not be ready for camp next year, does this alter the plan for trading Lui?

Luongo is clutch. When it matters he always shows up. Always.

If the team has lost an important game, it's always been a matter of the team letting Lu down. Luongo always holdsddown the fort. When it matters there isnt a single goalie in the league that can do what roberto does

He stood on his head game seven. Made a couple huge saves and the team couldn't help him out. Go watch the game. Just watch it once and tell me how many times u expect him to absolutely rob the opposition.

You obviously don't remember the game. Watch it.


I was actually at the SCF Game 7 there bud. First goal was weak, the short handed one he folded like a cheap tent and ended up in the net with the puck. Not sure what game YOU were watching. Certainly wasn't the one I was at.

I would love to see Lu stay, but I truly think he is leaving soon. Notice that he has the same mask from last year.

Very sad time for me.

LOL playoff inconsistency is his only flaw aside from puck handling and shootouts. Most Lu lovers will even say that.

Sorry bud, your favorite player is getting traded sooner or later :(

great we moved on from torres/clutterbuck to luongo SCF bashing again.. awesome.

if lu hadnt stood on his head in games 1,2,5 it wouldve been an embarrassing 4game sweep. He has his bad games like every goalie he is not super-human nor is he the best in the league he is an above average goalie and when he is on his game he is one of the best.

Couldn't agree more. As a Jets season ticket holder, I have been waiting for him to be traded to the Eastern Conference. He's not perfect, but he's the best goalie the Canucks have ever had. Whatever team he gets traded to, I'm getting a Luo jersey of that team. Except, of course, if he goes to the Leafs. I will never get a Leafs jersey.


The correct respect and still realistic: Plus one sir! And btw the most welcome fan of another team on our forum. I love the anybody but the Leaf's bit too... B)

PS I bought a Jets Jersey when back home at Christmas despite being a Canuck fan now 20 years (since Selanne was traded) to add to my closet of appropriate ones. Couldn't bear to put Kane's name on it though, left it blank.

Yesterday's game was great for the Canucks in more than one way.
It showcased how valuable an asset Luongo is. The Canucks again played a poor defensive game and they were still in the game. For teams like Washington, Philly, Toronto and Florida a point can go a long way.
It also showed us we need some size on this team. Ebbett is too small and we have enough of those kind of players. A guy like Kostopoulos would be a good fit for now. I would hope the Luongo deal would give us another Kassian type player but to be realistic even if it did give us that guy, it would be a young guy that wouldn't be ready for the NHL.


Yip; a very good showcase! Including the need for another big forward so the goalie does not have to be under such pressure. Perhaps a bonafide puck moving right D (in a package with one of our surplus of left D) to help our PP?

Lou's numbers are also pretty much spot on his career average; near .920 and 2.21 goals against. We do need Cory to come around soon... Meh, no stress, it'll happen!

PS: I like Kostopoulos. An upgrade on Weise; but not in a major way. He's smaller and obviously not a top 6 guy, therefore not the main solution we're looking for. I'd look at him once other pieces fall into place as a depth guy, for which he would be a score!

And the reason for this is the Bruins had a franchise goalie who stood on his head for games 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7; which is something that a franchise goalie may have to do in order for his team to win.

Obviously, it didn't matter how bad Luongo played in a game or two of that series, if he held serve with Thomas for another game or two, allowing us to seal the deal. But in those other 4 games, we were done before the 2nd period ended (at the LATEST).

That's pretty deflating for a team already battered, bruised, and running on fumes. It's not like they were going to push in the 3rd periods of those games to score an extra goal or two just so the CDC guys here couldn't say "we only scored EIGHT goals!"

Both teams came out firing. Thomas stood on his head like usual. Luongo looked a bit shaky.

The goals wren't great that he let in, I don't blame him for them but he wasn't 100% on his game.

No u r wrong... you have to score one goal at least to win an NHL playoff game. Canucks didn't... they got shutout three time in the finals. Luongo was as good as he could have been in game 7. Lucky for us he was in net and we didn't get swept or lose 4-1 at the very best.

Also were lucky he was in net last night so we got one point. Luongo wears number one for a reason.

Tim Thomas had two phenomenal years. The reSt of his career he sucked and isn't playing this year. It happens in the NHL.

Sometimes a goalie comes from no where and plays amazing for a year or two. Luongo has been amazing for ten years. That's what you call a franchise goaltender... not Tim Thomas Who has two God like seasons and disappears


Edit: I'm not knocking Thomas... just saying u can't compare his two years to Roberto Who has dominated the worlds most competitive hockey league for a decade

nobody wants Lu's over inflated 10 year contract and no GM is gonna give Gillis anything close to what he is demanding so in the meantime Lu is sitting on the bench sucking up cap space and being paid for doin' nothing.  He played well last night to a point even though the pylons in front of him had their panties down around their ankles most of the night!!! Bieksa and Garrison are liabilities and should be unloaded.  Lu is a fantastic tender and should be dealt to another team for his contract unload only!!!  Gillis is the lousiest GM this team has ever had!!!...

I don't get some of these ideas. I mean Anaheim loves Hiller, Chicago although there had been growing pains is comitted to Crawford moving forward.

Philadelphia I could see not being overly thrilled with Bryzgalov but he has potential to get hot as well so not sure this is a viable option or at least for this season.

Toronto I could see keeping their two goaltenders they have now. Why not ?

Florida does need an upgrade, but does that mean Markstrom is not ready to challenge ?


Toronto - Why not? Because for a team that plays in the self described "centre of the universe" and being the "most hockey mad market there is" it would be a collassal disappointment to not make the playoffs after a nearly a DECADE when everyone knows that your biggest weakness is goaltending.

Florida- Being ready to challenge and being ready to be an everyday #1 starter are 2 different things. Recent examples ( Cory Schneider, Pekka Rinne, Corey Crawford, Jimmy Howard) show that the majority of goalies are ready for that roll after they turn 25, and not 22 lik Markstrom. Why would they want to rush it and risk his development? That's where Luongos contract comes onto play and they have to decide if it is worth it to bridge the gap for 3-4 years until Markstrom is ready.

Dude, I agree that Luongo wasn't the biggest reason for the SCF loss, but that's not what you were arguing.

The fact is, Louie had three excellent games and four not very good games in that series. (The dagger IMO, was game six) And we were all "watching".

BTW: I don't think we got shut out three times in that series...

I have to agree here. Lou was stellar in the games we won but he was sub-par for the games we lost. However, he was not the reason we lost the series. The lack of scoring and how they played us physically was the biggest concern in that series.

Lu wears number one because he only thinks about himself and can't take a minute out of his busy back up goalie schedule to hang out with a teenage transgendered goalie.

Cory Schneider is the best goalie that has ever lived.

And if the rest of the team was not so riddled with injurys and could find ways to score and yes play defence there would be a stanley cup banner in the rafters

Who cares if you were there , Does not mean you have a better evaluation of the game . The whole team crapped out because of injurys and were unable to score and play defence

That's great and all but I think Lu needs to start to panic a bit and go to a place he may not want to go to.
I think there is a deal out there for us but Lu doesn't want to go there.
Eventually something is going to have to give.
I'm sure if one of those 3 teams you've mentioned really want Lu and give us a package that'll work for us, Gillis can sell Luongo on playing the rest of his career there. At least lets all hope he can.
