Remember a few weeks ago when the news broke that Luongo was to be honoured by the Italian Walk of Fame? Remember how they said that he was "often referred to as the greatest goalie that ever lived" and we all had a good laugh at that? Well yesterday was the induction ceremony, and Luongo was mobbed on College St. by Canucks fans, passersby and Munga Cakes alike!

Considering Roberto Luongo's absurdly long contract, and the plucky efforts of Cory Schneider, you'll forgive most Vancouver fans for ignoring the other netminders in their pipeline. Eddie Lack deserves your attention, if for no other reason than he could well be the next goalie to back up #1 should Schneider be dealt for
Zach Parise anyone down the line. So what does the immediate future hold for the big Swede waiting patiently in the wings?

There is a little something from everywhere this week on NationRadio. Red Deer Rebels talk starts it off, then it swings over to the Winnipeg Jets. Then Jason Bonsignore emerges from the mists of time to talk about his stint as an Oiler so many years ago.
Then some AHL talk and a look ahead at the Oilers special teams rounds out the week. Oh and what's that? A Toronto Maple Leafs update if anyone West of Mississauga cares to hear about that sort of nonsense.
This is NationRadio.

Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily Times broke the news yesterday (stick tap to PHT's Joe Yerdon) that the Canucks have offered former Red Wings goaltender Manny Legace a PTO. Manny Legace - who spent last year in the German league with the Iserlohn Roosters - hasn't played in the NHL since a 28 game stint with the Carolina Hurricanes in the 09-10 season.(*) You can go read the official Canucks.nhl.com press release announcing the deal here.
(*) The Iserlohn Roosters have a pretty hilarious "aggressive Rooster" logo.
