We knew that Roberto Luongo’s comments yesterday about being willing to waive his no-trade clause were of interest, and were bound to help feed speculation this summer. What we didn’t know was that he’d actually requested a trade.
To be fair, we don’t have official confirmation on that last point from the player or the organization. But at this point, it sounds all but confirmed.

What follows here is a table that's quite data-heavy.
As you probably know, we count scoring chances at Canucks Army. After every game, we post a recap with a table of players on both teams, the number of scoring chances they were on the ice that were for their team, and the number of scoring chances that went against their team.
So for the playoffs, we've tallied it up. For what we define as a scoring chance, click here.

It looks like Luongo's waiving goodbye, but he's just calling for a towel.
Still this photo makes me sad.
In his end of year presser today, Mike Gillis notably dodged questions about the status of head coach Alain Vigneault. He refused time and time again to be pinned down, and avoided giving an explicit answer. The other topic he avoided answering explicitly? What he'll do to solve Vancouver's log-jam between the pipes.
In his press conference, Gillis waffled, and seemed to leave the door open to the prospect of returning both goaltenders next season. When the players met with the press, however, Luongo's choice of words and tone belied the reality that the team is likely to try and move him over the course of this summer.
