I'd agree with that. Why risk rushing your biggest asset if there is a chance you could risk losing him for even longer.

I was more worried with Luongo rushing himself.

That's pretty much how they had to be after his setback...If he had the setback and then rushed it again and had another it would have looked pretty stupid.

Glad to hear he feels the rehab process is done. Looks like we'll have our 2 biggest pieces playing together very soon .

The 2nd half of this season is going to be fun...I just hope we can catch Calgary for 3rd because I really don't want to face Chicago in the 1st round if we finish 5th. I'd rather play Detroit.

Yeah, third is looking like the best potential playoff spot for the Canucks. Along with missing Chicago in the first round, assuming they get there and there are no upsets, it'd mean playing Detroit in the second round instead of San Jose. No offense meant to the reigning champs, but San Jose has eaten the Canucks alive in recent years while the team has been fairly competitive with Detroit.

I must be one of the few who wouldn't mind Chicago in the first round. The only downside to me of playing them is that we'd have to play SJ (likely) in the next round if we got past Chicago. I'd take Chicago over Anaheim if I had the choice right now. I like to maintain the assumption that before a young team can do anything in the playoffs, they have to suffer playoff heartbreak before. Hopefully, that heartbreak would occur in the first round for us if we played Chicago

I'm with you. Chicago doesn't scare me. fact is, you have to beat some good teams to make a play off run. Chicago is obviously a strong team, young, fast, dynamic, exicting, and entertaining. also unproven. I think we match up well against them (assuming we're relatively healthy on the back-end) in a 7 game series. only team I'm really afraid of is San Jose.

the silver lining in Lu's injury, he'll be much more rested going down the stretch than he's been...ever.

Defenceman Sami Salo, who’s been out nearly a month with a broken rib skated in the optional morning skate and will be practising with the full team on Monday. He could be back in the lineup this week

Injured goaltender Roberto Luongo had a planned day off on Saturday but is expected to be on schedule to play sometime in the next week

Barring some unforeseen circumstances the team looks like it could be almost completely healthy within the week.

FWIW, Strachan just said on the Hotstove that Luongo will be back Thursday against the Coyotes.

I can't believe the question came up if Sundin in the line-up would hamper Canucks playoff hopes.

It is Strachan...but he was the only who thought Sundin was coming to Vancouver...not that I'm defending him

Luongo confirmed during the intermission that Thursday is a "possibility" if his rehabilitation progresses like it has been

Am I the only one who wouldn't mind seeing Luongo sit out until after the All Star break? Not overly comfortable with only 1 or 2 full practices and then right into a game.

Ah, missed that. Although, after Sanford's performance tonight, I'm tempted to recant that sentiment.

Seriously though, we need Luongo back ASAP before this team gets too deep in a hole.

Not if playing in the game will reinjure him forcing him to miss another month or so. And if the Canucks can't beat the Coyotes with their backup, they've got serious issues.

The Canucks couldn't beat the Blues with their backup in net so can we please stop looking down on teams???

There are no easy nights in the NHL and the Canucks found that out the hard way.

Speaking of looking down on teams, let's stop assuming we make the playoffs.

, two straight losses and its all doom and gloom? Get you're emotions in check man.

If the Canucks win three straight, then this whole board is in a euphoric ecstasy.

I just want to address the people who continue to say "Sit him till after the all-star break"

you act like they haven't been cautious with Luongo, he had a set back on Dec.10 and they sent him home for christmas! that's like 20 days of just heali

If he can comeback, it means he's ready, no one is going to rush our franchise player back when he's not ready

Yet that's exactly what happened before his first "set-back". Imagine that.

So does that mean Luongo should play 100% of the remaining games? There are no easy nights if you don't show up and expect to win. If you show up and play hard, you have a great chance to win.
