Roberto who? Ryan Miller gets 2nd straight shutout, 'Nucks win

Ryan Miller started a Vancouver Canucks road trip with his second straight shutout Friday night as he and his teammates thumped the hapless Columbus Blue Jackets, 5-0. Miller made 31 saves and has now allowed just a single goal in his last three games.

Maple Leafs lose again, Drew MacIntyre misses first NHL win

In what may be the only chance at an NHL win, 30-year-old Drew MacIntyre lost. MacIntyre got his first NHL start in Florida against the Panthers after the Toronto Maple Leafs dropped out of playoff contention but, though playing well, Toronto lost, 4-2.

Roberto Luongo's 35-save performance against Stars helps Canucks

Two days after his 35th birthday Roberto Luongo gave his former Vancouver Canuck teammates a gift by beating the Dallas Stars, 3-2, on Sunday. The Canucks have a slim chance of making the Stanley Cup playoffs and a Dallas win would have eliminated them.

Op-Ed: Canuck fan counts the ways he's happy Roberto Luongo is gone

It's over! Done! Yes, at last the unthinkable but constantly thought of has occurred, now nearly a month ago, and Roberto Luongo was dealt back to the Florida Panthers. It's taken time to process but I am ready to speak. First word out of the gap?

Take that, Torts! Roberto Luongo gets shutout back with Panthers

So take that coach John Tortorella! Roberto Luongo, dissed by his former coach, who gave a key start to his back-up, got lots of respect in his first game after being traded back to the Florida Panthers. Lou got the club's first shutout in two years.

Op-Ed: Whinging about Tortorella remarks makes hockey fans seem wimpy

I haven't gotten a bead on exactly who did all the griping about Vancouver Canucks' coach John Tortorella's words to the effect that he'd prefer Sweden to beat Canada for the gold at Sochi. But whomsoever it was needs a course in sucking it up.

Team Canada whips Norway 3-1 in first Olympic test, Price in goal

Sochi - It was expected Team Canada, with a powerhouse line-up of NHL stars, would beat Norway in each country's first game at the 2014 Sochi Olympics Thursday, and that's what they did. Norway fought hard but Canada's 3-1 win was convincing.

The Canadian Men's 2014 Olympic hockey team has a few surprises

Sidney Crosby made the team, so did Drew Doughty, Roberto Luongo and Jonathan Toews, all players you knew would. In a country ripe with hockey players the picking could not have been easy but the results, announced today, look...Golden?

Roberto Luongo out 7-10, Canucks call up goalie Joacim Eriksson

While Vancouver Canuck GM Mike Gillis has not revealed the full extent of the injury suffered by goalie Roberto Luongo, he has called up goalie Joacim Eriksson from the Utica Comets of the AHL. Gillis called up Eriksson Friday morning.

Roberto Luongo blanks Oilers, now one shutout behind Patrick Roy

Roberto Luongo skated a step closer to the great Patrick Roy Friday night by blanking the Edmonton Oilers 4-0. The 19-save whitewashing of the hapless Oilers gives Bobby Lou 65 shutouts in his career, one behind Roy's 66.

Roberto Luongo tweet finds him all set to play with Eddie Lack

Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo has but recently lost his goaltending partner of the past 4 or so seasons but already seems prepared to move on with someone new. Luongo sent an amusing tweet, or his alter-ego strombone1 did, to Eddie Lack.

Mike Gillis on talk with Roberto Luongo: Not 'strained' at all

The much-ballyhooed talk between Canucks GM Mike Gillis and the team's number one goalie, Roberto Luongo, has finally taken place. Gillis flew down to Florida last week, as he said he would, and the little he's divulged since returning bodes well.

Is Roberto Luongo coming around? Two Strombone1 tweets say he is

A concern of some Canucks fans since Cory Schneider was traded at the recent NHL entry draft has been the mental state of Roberto Luongo. Bobby Lou's silence was doing that thing called 'speaking volumes' and in this case it wasn't golden.

Op-Ed: Does Roberto Luongo's silence mean trade again in works?

It's nearly two weeks since Cory Schneider was dealt by the Vancouver Canucks, giving by default the first string goalie position back to Roberto Luongo. Luongo still hasn't commented publicly on the development and has been tight-lipped privately, too.

Op-Ed: Oh-oh - Roberto Luongo still hasn't commented on Schneider trade

I'm not so big on even basic math but given the NHL entry draft, and trade of Cory Schneider, took place last Sunday and it is now Saturday it's easily determined that it's been 6 days since that memorable day in Canucks history.

Op-Ed: If Canucks deal Schneider to Oilers, could they get Eberle back?

Whether Canucks GM Mike Gillis is looking to create a better market for Roberto Luongo by floating Cory Schneider's name can't be known. But the more options he appears to have the more likely a team trying to lowball him for Luongo will raise the ante.

Op-Ed: Vancouver media lose logic when floating Roberto Luongo buyout

Vancouver - The Vancouver Canucks will not buy out Roberto Luongo. Veteran reporters may be speculating about that happening but there's as much chance of it as there is of Gary Bettman winning an NHL fans popularity poll.

Vancouver Canucks sign Swedish goalie Joacim Eriksson

It's not the goalie deal Vancouver Canuck fans are expecting but down the road it may prove significant. Canucks GM Mike Gillis signed arguably the best available Swedish goalie on Monday, Joacim Eriksson.

Roberto Luongo to Islanders? Bob McKenzie puts it out there

One of the great pleasures in being a sports fan is prognosticating about trades. Most fans do it. In the case of Roberto Luongo, who it seems has been on the trade market since the Maple Leafs last won the Cup, some have done it dozens of times.

Don Cherry to former Bruin Brad Park: 'Sorry...but you were fat'

Don Cherry is a colorful guy, it is there in his suits and surname, and he don't mince no words. On Coach's Corner Wednesday, along the way to trashing Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis, Cherry noted that when he got traded to Boston, Brad Park was "fat."

Op-Ed: Vancouver Canucks should start Schneider tonight, likely won't

There will be few who will agree Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault should start Cory Schneider over Roberto Luongo tonight in the fourth game of their opening-round playoff series. Luongo's done good things in this series, less so Schneider.

Roberto Luongo's parents visiting and trying 'to be supportive'

It has been much talked and written about, the difficult day that Vancouver Canucks back-up goalie Roberto Luongo had this week. He wasn't traded and he'll stick to sitting on the bench with a ball cap on. His contracts, he said, "sucks."

Op-Ed: Likely too late for Canucks GM Gillis to move Luongo for goals

There'll be no forgiving Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis if he fails to get more goals while jettisoning Roberto Luongo by the looming NHL trade deadline Wednesday. While Canuck fans enjoyed parts of a recent 6 game win streak, they didn't enjoy it all.

Op-Ed: Note toToronto Maple Leafs - you don't need Roberto Luongo

Toronto - The Toronto Maple Leafs do not need Roberto Luongo to make the playoffs or even to have an impact in the playoffs. They also don't need him going forward from this season. In other words, the Leafs don't need Roberto Luongo, period.

Op-Ed: Mike Gillis takes asset Roberto Luongo, turns him into albatross

Maybe it's the opposite of pulling a rabbit out of a hat, what Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis did. Gillis had an asset, Roberto Luongo, that he no longer needed and instead of turning him into something, he turned him into nothing.

Vancouver Canucks crushed as flying Wings get 8 by Roberto Luongo

The Detroit Red Wings scored early and often as they steamrolled over Roberto Luongo and the Vancouver Canucks, 8-3. It was Luongo's first regulation loss of the season and ended the team's four game road trip at 2-1-1.

Jacob Markstrom: Panthers last defence before Roberto Luongo deal

The Florida Panthers are trying their third string goalie, Jacob Markstrom, to get more saves. It’s been a rough ride for the Panthers, who are out of the playoff picture in part due to Jose Theodore’s .893 SV % and Scott Clemmensen’s woeful .862.

Henrik all-time Canucks scorer, Sedins 19th in NHL family scoring

The Vancouver Canucks have a new all-time scorer in the person of their captain, Henrik Sedin. Sedin passed another Swede, their former captain, Markus Naslund with two assists in a 4-3 home loss Friday.

Red Wings goalie Joey MacDonald on waivers, available for takers

While any NHL talk of a goalie being available is almost entirely centered on Roberto Luongo, there is now another veteran puckstopper on the market and this one could be had for nothing. The Detroit Red Wings have put veteran Joey MacDonald on waivers.

Op-Ed: Canucks should trade Roberto Luongo for one thing - more goals

Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis can talk to reporters until the new CBA is done in a decade, endlessly telling them that he's happy having two great goalies and it's all working out fine, thank-you. But if he doesn't trade one, he will hurt his team.

Strombone1 had been mostly silent for awhile but it appears Roberto Luongo's alter-ego is back. Vancouver Canuck fans hope it means he's all set for the 2013-2014 season.
