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?

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.

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: 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 to name John Tortorella as coach June 25

The Vancouver Canucks will hold a press conference today, Tuesday, June 25, and introduce John Tortorella, the 17th head coach in the franchise's history. It's not up on their website but that is the buzz.

Secret is out: John Tortorella to be Vancouver Canucks head coach

Hockey fans in Vancouver should brace themselves because the circus is coming to town. That circus would be John Tortorella, who arrived at Vancouver airport Friday keeping tight-lipped; he didn't need to talk though, his very presence said it all.

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: Boldly narrowing the list of goalies Maple Leafs could get - to 4

Toronto - Let us forget about providing links and not bother with a quote and accept as fact that Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke has stated unequivocally his team will acquire a veteran goalie. Both he and Dave Nonis have said as much, and that is that.

Trade talk: Roberto Luongo brings Chicago Blackhawks into play

Vancouver - Fans will decide for themselves if Roberto Luongo opened the door to a trade to the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday, but arguably he did. It's a destination that pundits have all but ruled out - at least until now.

Vancouver Canucks need goals, must hit home run with Luongo deal

The desperation being felt by Canucks GM Mike Gillis must surely be mounting. Yes, his Canucks won their second straight President's Trophy but a window to winning the Stanley Cup is closing and he needs the Roberto Luongo trade to keep it open.

Vancouver Canucks lock up Cory Schneider with 3-year deal

Vancouver - The Vancouver Canucks may have dodged a bullet by locking up goalie Cory Schneider on Thursday. It's a 3 year deal that reports say calls for the 26-year-old to make $12 million over the length of the contract.

Is Luongo trade talk about driving up the price - for Schneider?

Vancouver - It hasn't been considered by anyone else, and if presented to Bob McKenzie or Pierre LeBrun or Doug McLean they'd call it a greater work of fiction than 'Slapshot'. Nick Kypreos might even get mad: "Are you kidding me?" he might bellow. "Not a chance!"

Looking for Roberto Luongo news? Follow hockey insiders' tweets

Vancouver - Let us get this right out in the open: when we don't have hockey we fans, especially Canadian ones, consider the next best thing to be hockey trade rumors. And this off-season is a great one for rumors, with the Roberto Luongo trade-saga leading the way.

Price of Luongo (or Schneider) goes up after 2 NHL goalie moves

Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis should be thanking his lucky stars right now, or at least thanking his goalie stars for being so good at such a good time. For the price of whichever puckstopper he trades this summer has just gone up, maybe considerably.

Keep Luongo and trade Cory Schneider for...a potential superstar?

Vancouver - It seems the subject of goaltending and the Vancouver Canucks is giving scribes enough material to last the offseason. In the absence of playoff hockey, for Canuck fans it is a topic more popular than a Justin Bieber tweet is to his legions of Beliebers.

Vancovuer Canucks news features local player and a bear killer

Vancouver - News out of Canuckville includes a player who just had a breakout season who says he'd like to join Vancouver, and one Canuck who some fans might like to see leave. Jason Garrison said he'd like to play for the Canucks, while David Booth killed a bear.

Did Canucks GM Mike Gillies say Cody Hodgson is high maintenance?

Most guys have had a girlfriend who earned the epithet high maintenance, and doubtless there are women with stories about guys who earned it. But can a hockey player earn it? Eric Lindros comes to mind, he earned it. And now Cody Hodgson.
