[Article] This is what Luongo means to some fans

50 posts in this topic

I wasn't aware that we lost the cup to the Blackhawks.

But really this is a touching story. Hopefully Lu reads the letter and can respond or get in contact with her.

I am ready to say at this point, if I wake up and Schneider has gone to another team and brings back the pieces that will put us over the top.

I will Luuuu once again.

And pray to god he gets it done when it counts.

Thanks Lu!

Could we start Schneids anytime soon?

He's paid his dues (and some for that matter) not easy to back up the LU!!!!!

He deserves another start this season, doncha think!

Luongo is short for Luongod. & it will be written... he was traded for our sins.

I love the woman's strength and battle heart.

Luongo will not be traded for our sins but that of the contractual sin of MG the GM.

i hope Lu doesn't leave us, i'd be more content with Cory leaving us if a goalie needs to be traded. Lu is the face and heart of the team.

I wish her well in her fight.

I understand this fully....hockey is one of the only things to keep us together at times in this household....it seems too simple/insignificant, but it's not. Most have heard the long story of my Mom's love of the game (well, mostly Trevor Linden. And Brent Sopel?).

We connect to these guys like family as, sometimes, we're isolated, lonely, afraid and have moments where it overwhelms us. To be able to turn on a game and focus on something of hope and anticipation (vs despair and worry) can be huge.

I really got something out of this (mostly a tear running down my cheek). It's been suggested that this be closed/merged, but I feel it should stand alone. We always can use an inspiring story that encourages us to keep going,despite the obstacles we may be facing.

Luuuu.

That's a pretty touching story alright. I certainly hope it works out for the lady and praise be to Luongo especially if it does.

I imagine Lu will respond after he reads this. He has shown a whole knew side of himself since last years exit.

don't want to be an ass but there were much more inspirational things that happened even within the Canucks team

how about Manny and Raymond coming back from their serious injuries?

Just Wow. I'm not surprised. He changed my life as well... he's such a role model, I'm not the least bit surprised to read this article.

Touching story! I wish her a speedy recovery and good health.

I've always found it ridiculous how much Canucks fans hate Luongo. People say he isn't mentally tough, but being a goalie in Vancouver is a rather mentally demanding job.

Many fans don't appreciate him and don't realize that he is a large reason this team gained legitimacy and a place amongst the teams in the league that players want to play for. Of course, he isn't the only one, as the Sedins and the Aquilini family have also played a huge part in that, but to dismiss what Roberto has done for this hockey club is either blind or ignorant. He is the first and only superstar goalie we've had to date.

Aside from winning a cup, Lu's numbers are up there among the game's very best in history.
