And as for that suspected Roberto Luongo account, while I can’t verify anything, it’s not too difficult to put it together:

He’s clearly somebody the Canucks know, since Ryan Kesler tweeted at him yesterday during all the Canuck Twitter shenanigans, and way back in January, Herb Bagel wryly tweeted “who or what is strombone1?”
Furthermore, before he had tweeted much of anything, he was followed by Kevin Bieksa, Ryan Kesler, Tanner Glass, Herb Bagel, Leo Luongo, Alex Edler, and the suspected Mason Raymond account, all of whom wouldn’t follow some random dude tweeting about the Jersey Shore and turkey sausages unless they knew him.
He has the same handle Roberto Luongo’s been using on poker sites for five years.
He tweeted about having a four-year-old daughter, which is about the age of Luongo’s daughter Gabriella.
He has no interest in the TSN media, since he follows none of their personalities, but he’s made a special exception for Jamie McLennan, who is one of Luongo’s closest friends and a former backup.
He recently started following Gerry Dee, just as Luongo told Dee he had recently begun to do when he admitted he had a Twitter account during this interview.
And finally, if he is Luongo, this tweet is hilarious:

I can ask anyone? But who has ever taken a bathroom break that infamous? Oh right.

What you've posted isn't the slightest bit convincing.

It looks like somebody screwing around who people, including some Canucks, think is entertaining/funny and as such has caught on in the Vancouver media.

Grabo is arguably better then all of them. In fact IMO its not even debateable with most of them. Roy might be the only one whom you could make a good argument for.

No, there isn't. That doesn't alter the fact that it's him. You have no concrete evidence that I'm not Batman. Does that make me Batman?

Strombone is either Luo, or one of the greatest trolls ever. That includes Canucks and the TSN guys.

Those guys could all be had for the right price. We have much more options that any of us think - we don't know who's actually available and who isn't.
Among them I think Roy is the only one who could be a potiental #1 Centre, however I can't see the Sabres trading him to the Leafs since both play in the Northeast Division.

That's pretty twisted. How is it a fact that it's him if there's no concrete evidence(or any at all really)? Facts are demonstrable by definition.

Batman analogy is just fail.

what you are suggesting is he's fooled dregger, mackenzie and ron maclean who tweet him fairly regularly but somehow you guys have some special info that supersedes the inside knowledge those guys have ... and somehow you alone from etobicoke and gta surroundings are able to devine it isnt him

doesnt make sense right?

I wonder if it's for Franson? I recall someone mentioning that Poile wanted to keep Franson, but he was the price of taking Lombardi off their hands. What's the deal with Wilson, anyway? Sounds like he has all the tools to be a Zajac-like player, but hasn't put it together.

2 weeks ago, @strombone1 tweeted about being at a Marlins game. The next day, a picture surfaced (nothing to do with @strombone1) of a girl at a Marlins game having her picture take with Roberto Luongo. My boy thebluemachine can probably help you out with that.

franson never really got a fair shake here, my recollection is carlyle didnt seem really impressed with him either

i like franson and id hate to see him leave, but like everything depends on the return

The next tweet is this:

Strombone ‏@strombone1
Bro trust me, I'm telling you! “@odognine2:Yes Italian guys if leafs get Luongo we win the cup. I know this. You've told me 1 million times"
@odognine2 is Jeff O'Neil's twitter account. So that hardly proves it wrong.

I don't believe it's Luongo because there is no evidence it is Luongo.

That lack of evidence to show it's not Luongo does not mean it is Luongo. In the same sense that just because I can't prove you aren't batman, doesn't mean you are batman. You're working that argument backwards.

The only one I found when looking back over a couple hundred tweets is this:

james duthie ‏@tsnjamesduthie
"@karliBolton88 Has Luongo been traded to the Leafs?" No Karli, but ask @strombone1 he's the true hockey insider.

That in no way implies that it is Luongo. Do you have any tweets from these guys implying that it is?
