Yes, but on HF is 7uongo. People like to only remember when he sucks. So stonewalling Chicago right now would be entertaining in many facets.

This reminds me. Everyone knows about Roy's very public trade demand but few people recall he did acknowledge being too heated at the time. He wanted the coach fired, and consider how he was treated. I cannot say I blame him. Point being, Lu was requesting a trade based on the perception we were moving on without him. If that changed, I imagine so would his opinion.

Roy was left hanging out to dry by that "coach" Tremblay on home ice. Not remotely the same IMHO. Plus, Roy was always a bit of a hot-head.

We couldn't just move on without him... he has a NTC and a 12 year deal

Ballard is playing better than decent imo. If he keeps this up we'll be able to salvage what we paid for him.

Luongo's gotten a ton of great performances against the Hawks over the years.

If there's a team he should be sheltered from, it's Anaheim.

Don,t know is your referring to me in particular but will respond because I was quoted.
Just don't want to be painted as a Reberto over Cody fan, I'm a nucks fan, that will accept the direction the team goes, and expect MG to choose the direction that maximizes or chance of cup. I was just trying to play devils advocate is all.

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.
You're having real issues with this Luongo thing eh? I see the compliments...i'm just not feeling them.

I think alot of the controversy within the fanbase has to do with the fact that a majority of them get their information from the newspapers and twitter accounts from local journalists, who's sole purpose seems to be to cause controversy in this marketplace, no matter the subject.

I was listening to the radio today, and this guy (no idea who) is talking about the 'controversy' and he says (and this is paraphrased), "Even if there is no controversy in the dressing room through all this, for half an hour a day, we the media members are going to bring it into the dressing room."

There is just something inherently wrong with that line of thinking. As the media network of a city, shouldn’t your job first and foremost be to support that team? Shouldn’t the efforts of your resources be put to discussing real team issues and problems, rather than essentially creating turmoil between fans in the city over issues that often doesn’t even exist?

Maybe I'm just naive. Or maybe the world really is that screwed up.

You assume I do things only because I get paid, and that's just really sad.
