I would love one of the big 2 FA but Burke hasnt given any hints that he'll be aggressive with free agents this year while previously he's said July 1st will be his ddraft.

Maybe he wants to keep things closer to his chest because being open hasn't brought him any success in the past.

That in no way implies that it is Luongo. Do you have any tweets from these guys implying that it is?
you see, the way it works is the tweets go to him, i am not a stalker and i dont save tweets to him

id just say if you wish to educate yourself, keep looking, if not keep posting as you are

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.
Be obstinate until 'proof' surfaces. I don't really care, but do you really wanna be the last one to figure it out?

I am trying to educate myself. You're telling me it's Luongo and I'm trying to understand why you think it is.

Oh hell, what does it really matter. I believe it's him. I've followed it close enough. I don't care if people need direct confirmation. It's social media and it's fun.

and i told you, then you asked me to provide the past tweets i relied on

anyway means nothing to me if you figure it out, for what its worth, from following him especially during the playoffs, i became convinced it is really him and i am pretty damn close to as cynical as you are

Actually, the more I think about it, it wouldn't surprise me if Henny is trolling people about a second trade. People here and in similar places are so funny when they think something is going on.

Heck, maybe Burke told him to say that and Burke is sitting at his computer laughing at you all right now.

There's always been something about Franson that, to me, made him seem like a stop gap. He would be intriguing to Nashville, I would assume. Knows their system well, too.

The July 1st is our draft day quote came from the year when the Leafs had no first and second round picks and I've always been pretty sure that he meant it to apply to that one year.

Anyways, luongo is said to be a laidback guy with a sense of humor, so I can see him doing this. This seems to be a joke amongst the hockey community so I wouldnt expect any of the members to go right out and say, "you're lou". There is no concrete evidence here, but its up to you whether you believe it or not.

It's definitely a Vancouver Canuck teammate or staff member pretending to be Luongo.

Just an inside joke in the locker room.

There is no measurable evidence that it is Luongo, but many people believe it is. If it isn't Luongo, it is someone very close to Luongo that has similar friends, interests, a sense of humour, and is with him a lot.

and that insider knowledge comes all the way from newfoundland?
brian burke's son seems to think its luongo

Quote:
TD: The other day, the @strombone1 twitter account - a feed largely believed to be run by Roberto Luongo - used the word "gay" on Twitter to describe something negatively (as weak or lame). He quickly deleted the tweet, and apologized profusely in public, and in private to several of his gay followers. You quickly vouched for Luongo as an ally on Twitter, saying: "If we're jumping all over everyone who has used slurs before, I'll have to resign."

Now the sentiment beneath your comment there hints at a very forgiving outlook on how to foster a spirit of tolerance and respect. This is a two-part question, first off: what advice would you give someone who publicly slips up, on how to handle the fall out?

PB: My policy is one of forgiveness because I've been there. For years I was the athlete using homophobic slurs, casually and regularly. Obviously I feel bad about that now, but I also know that if every time I'd done that someone had been there screaming and yelling and calling me an ass-hole, that it wouldn't have been productive. So when athletes, or fans, or anonymous Twitter accounts use homophobic slurs, we try - so long as they show they're learning from the mistake - to support them.

We've all been there, you know? If we're going to go get the pitchforks every time someone does that, then You Can Play is going to need a new President because I'm out!

As to my recommendation for what an athlete or someone should do is: apologize. You said it, you screwed up, so say that. “I used that word, I shouldn't have done that, I apologize” and then don't use it again. The only time athletes end up getting bogged down with this issue is when they do the half apology thing “oh I apologize if anyone was offended.” Just say “I screwed up, I shouldn't have used that word, I won't use that word again, I'm sorry,” and then it's a non-issue.
