"It (the Olympics experience) was really intense. The most intense thing I have ever been a part of," he said. "I am human, like everyone else and I went through a lot in the last month and a half. After it all, it’s hard sometimes emotionally to get back up for things."
"I know I will be there when it counts," Luongo said after the Canucks beat the Ducks Wednesday. "I am not worried about it, although I know that people are panicking all over the world. That’s how I feel, anyway."
Vigneault said Wednesday that checking centre Ryan Johnson, who crashed frighteningly into the boards against the Red Wings, was discharged from hospital late Tuesday night and wanted to practise with teammates on Wednesday.
Johnson hit his head after losing an edge during a high-speed puck chase and is expected to be out a minimum of one week in accordance with the National Hockey League protocol on concussions.
"We'll see what happens with the [Sedin] twins," Luongo said. "It's too early for me to talk about a deal. We'll have to see who comes back and decide after that. I know the Canucks management wants a winner."
