Luongo would likely be on the 1st flight out to Florida if he was bought out to sign with either the Panthers or Lightning.

Who needs the aggravation of playing in a Canadian market.

That or if he wants to go win a Cup he could sign in Chicago or Pittsburgh for cheap.

More Bieksa quotes.

Mark Spector ‏@SportsnetSpec 5m
Bieksa - “Thornton, another so-called Canadian ... He gets slashed, takes his glove off, shakes his hand."

Mark Spector ‏@SportsnetSpec 2m
(This stuff is gold.) Bieksa: “Couture has been snapping his head back. This isn’t my opinion. The evidence is in the video.”

Mark Spector ‏@SportsnetSpec 56s
More Bieksa: “Those are 2 Canadian guys who are supposed to be playing the game with integrity. Maybe our team has to do more of that.”

......

Can't blame him either. He's been in a far worse than Patrick Roy situation and has been for nearly a year.

The money is good though..


This Nucks team doesn't need coaches it needs therapy.
The money is good, but at this point I don't think he cares. I truly think he'd just rip up his contract if the NHL would allow him to, but I can't see them setting that precedent.

What the hell does them being Canadian have to do with this? And if you are going to play that card, show some integrity and be the bigger man.

****ing moron

He's going to receive some much deserved criticism for his comments. Ridiculous on multiple fronts.

Haha Canucks players and coaches embarrassing themselves

While I'd love to watch hockey all day, unfortunately I have academic things to attend to :/

what the **** kind of integrity is bieksa talking about, he'll take any opportunity to throw punches at smaller players like staalberg, but when a guy his size wants to go he uses his stick.

I hate Bieksa more than any other player in the league, but he's got a point.

It just happens to be extremely hypocritical. The whole 'Canadian' thing really pisses me off too.

The Sharks aren't exactly a clean party but the Canucks aren't the ones who should be calling them out.

AV calling his own team out... Must know he's gone after game 4. That team is a psychological mess teetering on "Flames mediocrity" territory. No way that team captures anymore division titles anytime soon.

This Toronto crowd sucks for a city that's waited 9 years for the Stanley Cup playoffs. I guess that's what happens when "Joe Fan" can't afford a ticket and your building is infested with "suits."

Aw give them a break. They don't know what the playoffs look like anymore. They're used to the Marlies playing there in the Leafs stead.

Some genius outside the ACC has a "Toronto Stronger" sign with a recoloured "Boston Strong" ribbon on it. Disgraceful.

It's even on NHL.com.

Caps get the too many men but Rags had more on the ice?

What can we expect with Gary in the house.

Hard to take the Leafs seriously as a playoff team when they've giving up 40 shots on a nightly basis.

There was (I believe) 10 Rangers' players on the ice,while there was six Washington players on the ice.


Yet,Washington ends up getting the penalty.



The ol.... Gary Bettman effect.

Rangers had 9 players on ice, caps had 6. Caps must have played the puck first to be the ones getting the penalty.

Man, I really like the way the caps play. They have a lot of heart, a lot of grit, and exciting plays. I think they have what it takes to at least get to the ECF.
They're making the Rangers D look like swiss cheese.
