The team is clearly more confident in front of Luongo.

Take a moment and imagine if he completely stonewalled them.

Could HF survive the madness?

That said, AV is faced with a two goalie situation, and he is doing the right thing in choosing whichever one he feels gives him a better chance to win.

And, perhaps, this is his way of putting pressure on Gillis to get something done (that is complete speculation on my part).

I really don't want to see Kassian fight Bollig. It was scary enough seeing the kid fight Clowe. He's much to valuable to fight a guy like Bollig.

So gillis confirms today on 1040 roberto asked for a trade, but were using him as our starter, I hope this all continues to go smoothly.

If we need roberto this season and want him to be our starter or share the crease, gillis I feel should stop discussing trading him right now.

It's not that odd. Luongo has dominated Chicago in the regular season with a 7-3-2 record and a .929 sv% over the last 4 seasons. He's been even better recently with a .942 sv% over the past couple of seasons.

Did he say that specifically or were they inferring from generalizations? I cannot see Gillis admitting such when he knows that would tank any value Lu had.

I hope we don't play like ass for the first 10 minutes like every game this season. I really like the Bolland-Sedin matchup with Kassian in. Also hope Toews gets smoked, that guy is such a prima donna, every time he opens his mouth you can tell that he's severely uneducated.

I guess i should clarify when asked about exploring trade avenues for roberto this summer gillis said "roberto requested to have us look at options for him, and thats what we did"

Around 5:30

I thought this was all well known by now roberto was wanting out and not wanting to stay here long term? Of course the way things are going, i imagine this could all change.

He also discussed possibilities of trading schneider, although he phrased it that he would trade any player on our team.

Good enough for me - that's definitely a trade request - now we can finally put the last nail in the coffin of the (little remaining) speculation that Luongo didn't want out.

CHiggs took a few stitches in his wrist after Garrison's skate nicked him while he was hopping over the boards. He didnt say anything about not playing so I assume he's in.

So we've all talked about how the other canucks players will respond to keith, but how will the sedins respond? I think they will be as pissed off as ever and will go absolute globetrotters tomorrow night.

I'm so ashamed of this post.

Everyone knows Sedins are robots and do not feel.

Though I do like the sound of globetrotter mode.

They do not show much feel, but I will tell you one thing, they care immensely about each other. There is most definitely a fire burning there when they see each other being assaulted like that. I remember one of them talking about in an interview how if the other one is injured that the other still feels the pain. Must be all of that twin esp wizardry.

Not to be a **** but "Roberto requested to have us look at options for him" could mean he stays and Cory goes as a option, and yes, every one knows he wants to be a starter. I dont think that can be argued against. Perhaps I should listen to the interview.

He does pretty much every time, so it wouldn't be surprising...

Of course he wanted out after they benched him in Round 1. I'd question his desire to win if he didn't. I'm surprised he didn't the year before when they benched him for Schneider -- Roy would have.

One can always hold out hope for Ballard's continued decent play - which will likely attract another GM. Getting his cap hit off the books will give Gillis more flexability with respect to Luongo (eg., keep both goalies); particularly if we get a useful player (forward) for Ballard in return.

The writings on the wall of what happened over summer, I dont know why robertos fans cant accept it, he had every right to ask for a trade to, av does not slip up on a french station saying roberto asked for a trade by accident. No coach makes that mistake.

Roberto also told that same station (rds) a few weeks ago he does not see himself as a canuck long term. He even commented prior about stepping aside for cory.

With that said roberto fans can hold onto the fact that perhaps they can patch things up if thats how things go and gillis really wants him, then they will have a situation with cory.

And proto is correct. No starting goal tender is going to want to stick around when hes benched in critical games to a backup. People were saying right when it happened he has to ask for a trade after this happened, roberto has naturally did what he felt he should do during this entire situation. And as proto said I would be worried about robertos compete level if he was fine with what happened in the la series.
