"I think first and foremost, I want to win the Cup and whichever team is going to give me the best chance to do that is the team I want to be with," Luongo said. "I love Vancouver, it's a great city with great fans. So far, I've really enjoyed my time there. Obviously, this year and next year are going to be a key role in my decision."
-What Luongo said on After Hours last night. From the Province.
Note: This doesn't surprise me one bit about Luongo. So we'll have to make deep runs in the playoffs over the next 2 years. Even that may not be enough to keep Lou around. Whatever. There's no point making a big deal of this right now.
Well, you chalk it all up to a bad night in the middle of a great 16-4-1 run since February and hope it doesn't become a trend when the road show moves on to Dallas on Tuesday. You hope that an untouched and unchecked Matthew Lombardi isn't allowed to skate right in on LaBarbera in the third period and easily tuck the puck home on a deke. You hope the Canucks get mad on the rest of this journey and get a more even performance from everyone.
Note: I don't know what to expect from the Canucks on this road trip. Perhaps a 500 record. But they can't play any worse next game. It's almost impossible, isn't it? I'm not worried.
The Canucks have a golf tournament planned today. Goodness knows what they were playing Saturday. Their six-game road trip resumes Tuesday in Dallas.
Note: Oh, that's where their heads were last night.
There's plenty of Canucks fans in Hawaii. Check out this short story by a former Vancouverite living in Hawaii.
Hey O'Brien! You're famous!
