When he’s on his game, Luongo is a formidable goaltender, no doubt about it. He’s a wild predator around his crease, with stealth reflexes unparalleled around the league. But, athleticism aside, sometimes I feel that he still has some things to learn about leadership.
These guys would not have turned down $101 million. Now that the Ilya Kovalchuk sweepstakes are well underway (and who knows maybe they’ll be over by the time this gets posted) every team in the NHL has to be at least contemplating adding him to their lineup. Who wouldn’t want to add a 27 year…
The Leafs, Flames, Ducks and Rangers got a head start on trade deadline day with some big names and bigger contracts being moved. It’s interesting to note that only the Flames are in a playoff spot, albeit it barely, at the moment.
Let’s hope that when the alarm goes off at 4 pm, Luongo is ready to warm up and play. The game starts 30 minutes later – someone remind Bobby Lu. The Vancouver Canucks take their road show to the Capital Valley as they play the streaking Ottawa Senators tonight.
While the loss to the Canadiens on Tuesday was not necessarily a bad or deflating one, it did prove one thing for me. The Canucks need to improve their third line… quickly.
