I heard there was a Roberto Luongo interview this morning which referenced peeing in the shower amongst other things. But since I can't listen at work, a tip of the hat to the Stanchion who caught the choice clip and did a great job transcribing the text for the rest of us:

Cfox: Any chance in hell you’re in a Canucks jersey this fall?

Luongo: Never say never, but I think we all know what’s going on, we’ve all seen what’s developed. At the end of the day I think it’s time to move on, and I’m ok with that. I’ve had a great six years in Vancouver and I think it’s a wonderful city. I really enjoyed my time there. Sadly I could never win a cup there, which is probably my greatest regret, but it was a great six years.

I thought poker players weren't supposed to tip their hand?

Give it all a listen right here.

Not exactly earth-shattering news, but since it's the first time we've heard from the man himself, speaking for myself it's somewhat depressing. It also firmly underscores the worst kept secret in hockey which is the Vancouver Canucks are Cory Schneider's team. Saying that as early as just this past winter would have sounded crazy. But the best goalie tandem in team history is effectively done and that's a tough pill to swallow (c'mon Stork, prove us wrong!). Some team is going to get a great goalie in the end. I hope their fans ignore the cap hit and embrace him.

As for the Canucks, the quicker Gillis can get this trade in the rearview the better for everyone involved.
