Luongo is always great in games that don't matter.

Uhh, last time I checked any game against the Hawks matters, and I'm pretty sure every game in this shortened season matters so I'm not sure what you're trying to get at.

Lui was brilliant in this game and his last couple.

This is why MG will not trade for a low return. Teams must pony up to get this goalie or it's a complete no go.

I hope the trade is in the summer as reinforcements are still yet to come; Kesler & Booth. The team will hardly need anyone after that and the player(s) we get in return of any Lui trade will likely not play much

Why would a game against the hawks matter more than a game against any other team?

They all count the same in the standings.

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.

Great win for the Canucks!
Luongo was magnificent although I didn't like the bellyflop goal he gave up. Nevertheless, he has been excellent in all of his starts so far this season and hopefully he will continue to keep it up whenever he is called upon.

Kane on Luongo "I think he's a great competitor and to be honest with you I'm glad he's doing well because he seems like a really good guy"

Well, that makes me hate Kane a little less.


How can you hate a cute little boy like Patty Kane to begin with? Don't you just wanna pitch his cheeks?

As great as Lu played, it bothers me that he was matched by Crawford. We should be able to light that fool up all day.


Crawford was absolutely outstanding in that game 7 against us 2 years ago. I think he will be a good goalie. Plus, all the trade talks has probably fired him up a little.

Even if were offered a 280 pound, 6'8, 70 point per season, best fighter in the NHL type of player for Luongo?


Sounds like the player I make for the Xbox Canucks team. He's a defencemen tho, you try skating around with a 280pd frame!

Certainly not the prettiest game ever but I did feel like the Canucks played with an elevated sense of urgency. I think Chicago raised our intensity.

Still that game was all about Luongo. Stellar game.

Missed the game (I was out getting a shootout victory of my own in hockey :P ) but everyone was talking about it.
Sounds like the Canucks played great

Based on the highlights:
Loved the pass Kassian made on Edler's goal. I think this was his first assist of the season right? Nice play on that goal because he had the vision to hit the trailer with the pass. It looked like he could have just passed it into the slot where all the traffic was in the hope that the Sedins could tip it home, but he recognized that Edler with the pinch was a higher percentage play. Great to know he has that element to his game.

Happy for Schroeder to get the shootout goal. He's got that clutch instinct building in him!

Luongo:

Not sure what to say.
That was a heavy lineup of shooters for Chi. I can't believe how well he did against them. Loved his convo with Kane. I swear those two are destined to meet in big games. The world's weirdest bromance lol.
Some fantastic saves from Luongo and his entire demeanour seems to have changed. I am so happy for him though. Doesn't matter how this all plays out. He's done a lot for the Canucks and it feels right having him in our net. And the way he has handled the situation with Schneider has just been so remarkable. Has earned a lot of respect for sure.

When you see how happy Luongo was to get the win and how happy the guys were for him, it really looks like the loyalty to Vancouver is still there. This guy still bleeds blue and green and he doesn't have one foot out the door just yet

Well said. I wouldn't say the Canucks played great, certainly with more intensity than some of the games this year. PP struggled and we didn't create a lot of 5 on 5 chances. Still, our defensive play was solid and limited Chicago's chances as well. I thought for the longest time it would end 1-buzz. Any time Chicago got a good chance Lou shut it down.

Solid win. The crowd at Rogers was definitely more pumped for this one than the dud versus Colorado.

Kesler, oh Kesler! Where art thou??!! Is he the only one who can win a face-off? Or plant himself in front of the net? So many scoring chances were blown last night because no one was in front! Kassian tries to, but where is everyone else? And I'm sorry, but I am just not a Schroeder fan. He has speed, but most of the time the guy just gives up the puck. Do I thing he has talent and potential? You bet! but he's not there yet.

No, the twins didn't show up. If they showed up, they would score.

Lu was good, but his game was more the product of the team in front of him.......they played very well defensively last night. They collapsed nicely, blocked shots and played an almost air tight containment game against the Hawks.

Still, he made some nice saves.......He likes having no pressure on him, that's for sure. I'm also getting sick of the media......I don't even watch the pre-game, or the between periods show anymore

We stomped them that game and Lu was a beast yet it still went to OT. Crazy, needs moar finish.

Patience, my friend. Patience. We beat a hot elite team without a 2nd line. Wait until they get back.
