Ppl have such short memories. How many times do we have to watch the same show. Luu excellent in the regular season and can't get it done when the pressure is really on. Trade him for a top 6 and something and lets go win a cup....


What about the pressure that has been on the Sedins for over 10years, they haven't gotten it done. You want to talk about age and declining play, and players who have had their chance and can't get it done when the real pressure is on, lets talk Sedins.

Answer this.

Keeping Schneider on the bench so much early in the season is stupid and short sighted. It's early in the season and he needs to play. I can only assume this is MG, again, interfering in coaching decisions. (e.g. like he did in last year's playoffs)

>..Although you make out the regular season means dick squat,we do have to win the useless regular season to be in the playoffs.
Just thought I'd remind you and a whole host of others about that fact.We are not a shoe-in for the playoffs you know.

I can say the same thing for our entire team.. Interesting it's all put on Luongo. Who am I kidding, it's not surprising at all.


Funny ever since the 2011 finals, I have yet to hear one solid reason or argument as to why the Sedins, Kesler, Burrows and everyone else only managed to score 8 goals in 7 games, and how this has zero to do with us not winning the cup.

You would be a fool to even try to come up with an excuse for it. The most basic concept and idea of sports since the time they were created is to score on the other team. Yet our team didn't even get 1 in game 7.

Whoever thinks Luongo is the sole guy to blow it when the real pressure comes, please read this and I dare you to try to come up with an answer/excuse.

injuries.

Edit: FTR, I don't think Lou was the sole reason we lost, but his inconsistent play was ridonculous, and it isn't like he only shat the crease once, he did it several times.

Great, he'll have another great season, we'll roll into the playoffs and fall apart again.

The constant trade rumors dogging him throughout the season will be his excuse this year. As opposed to previous years, his back, his wife, his contract, his team mates or his captaincy being his excuse.

Canucks win 4-1, clearly a solid team win.  They won 2-1 in a shootout against the hottest team (Chi), Canucks only scored 1 goal in regulation and barely got 1 in the shootout and Luongo had to freakin be perfect in the shootout against the skillful Hawks.  Canucks beat Ducks 5-0 solid game from Schnieds, solid game from the entire team, Schneider could have had an average game we still would have won, but he was great too.  Had we won 1-0, that is all Schneider and maybe the defense if they played well.<br />
<br />
Lose 4-0 in game 7 in the SCF how is that Luongo&#39;s fault, yeah he let in 4 could have been better for sure, but the offense could have been a WHOLE lot better, team loss.  Very simple common sense.<br />


I think the 4th was an empty net. Luo needed 3 shutouts to win the cup. He is not blameless, but his teammates are equally a reason why they didn't win one more gm.

Exactly, he is not the sole reason. In Boston Lu was crap, could of been way better. but man game 7 we got shutout plain and simple. 4-2 score blame Lu. We scored 8 goals in 7 games, that tell's why and how we got to game 7

Proud of Booby Luo. Anytime one of your players makes the 3 stars list they must be doing great. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the G.M.'s offices of teams that were kicking the tires for Luo and offering up bags of pucks. I think the way he has been playing combined with the play of Marty Brodeur might make Luo's contract seem very affordable.

Yeah so we trade Luongo for a top 6, we trade the twins for d-men and we trade Edler for a keeper..... :picard:

We have more than we think in common with ''Le Canadien de Montréal''

Both have logo shapped in ''C''

Canadien and Canucks mean the samething

We both hate the Boston Bruins now

Alain Vigneault coached both teams

Rogers Arena, Centre Bell, it's phones company

We are blue white and green they are blue white and red

Our #1 goalie is from Qc, their #1 goalie is from BC


But we have one important thing different and I hope it will change after the next season, we don't have Stanley Cup banner

Or you could say that when Lou was good he was very good, and when he was bad, he was awful. In the final against Boston he allowed 17 goals in three games in Boston - a GAA of 5.67. Thomas learned how to play in Vancouver AND Boston, Thomas only allowed 8 goals in 7 games, while Lou allowed 23. Now I will grant you that the Canucks were a badly injured team by the end - the Bruins given free reign for mayhem by the homer Irish referee O'Halloran. especially when in the Boston rink - but still - 5.67 GAA in Boston - that really sucks. But, as with any player - most of the time you don't know when they are struggling with an injury that keeps them off their best game - but to be injured only in Boston?

But this year, after training with Allaire, he is a different goalie - more willing to challenge, more upright upper body when in his butterfly, not falling over onto his belly or back near as much - better coverage of the top of the net, better side to side, and better post coverage, and much better rebound control - something he mormally struggles with early. Glad to see him playing much better - it's still early, but it looks like vintage Luongo - those extra months off may have also given him the opportunity to get fully healthy.

At least when he does finally make his way out of Vancouver, he'll go out as everyone should remember him. I hope Gillis wasn't just trying to cool trade rumours off, because I think Washington is actually the perfect place for Lu to go. If they think they can just ride out the storm with Holtby and Neuvirth in net they're crazy! Haha

Ovechkin has been quoted as saying before that he thinks Luongo is the best goalie in the national hockey league- bet he amps his play up if they acquire Lu. Not to mention they have an abundance of defensemen that they can offer and enough depth at forward that they can give at least one non star player up.. I think a package of Neuvirth, Alzner and Brouwer would be a great deal!

But all I gotta say is good luck in the future Lu! (Wherever it may take you) You are one hell of a goaltender and always have been, here in Vancouver we will miss you! :towel:

"It's an opportunity, we don't look at it as a last chance... We look at it as an opportunity to do something great. We are going to take it period by period, shift by shift. You just have to be better than the guy across from you... Every guy in this locker room I can say believes we can do this." - Ryan Kesler

I'm not sure about his teammates being equally to blame. Luongo gave up 15 goals in roughly 128 minutes in Boston, I dont even think the Oilers of the 1980's would be able to overcome that floodgate opening.
Sure, our team didn't score enough, but realistically we had no chance with the way Luongo was ushering them in.

Edit: Forgot, congrats to Luongo on his star selection, most deserved.
