Dear Mr. Luongo

#1 Unread post by NorthernPete »

Hey there! You know those "easy stops that you could make" you were smack talking during the post game 5 press conference? Why don't you try MAKING one on the road??! You're giving me a freaking heart attack. Game 7 at home thank god. These road losses are on your shoulders. You're team has been out scored 19 to 8 in the series. And 17 to 4 in the last 4 games. Ummmmm did that gold medal you won only give you super powers in Canada? Ugh. You're killin me.

What's the ultimate thing that makes you Canadian? I've always heard that hockey ranked higher than birth so I'm definitely curious.

Hockey! It didn't matter what happened at the last winter olympics, when the mens team won the gold medal (over the Americans none the less) the whole country was talking about it. Now on the verge of bringing Lord Stanleys cup back north of the boarder for the first time in 18 years. Its exciting. But when your country teams goalie let's in 14 goals in 4 games on the road, it tends to make the fans a little prone to high blood pressure.

At least you are not living in Ground Zero.....god help Vancouver if the 'Nucks lose game seven at home on Wednesday. Gonna be well over 100,000 fans in the downtown core watching the game. Back in '94 when they lost game seven to NY in NY, a riot ensued.

Sad thing is about this season, even though the Canucks won the Presidents Trophy for the best record and most points during the regular season and they took the Western Conference Championship, no one will remember or care, all they will remember is that the Canuck blew the Stanley Cup in game seven against Boston if they lose. Sad really, the boys gave us a season and a playoff run to remember. Just hope that they can pull it together for the last game.
Always ask why.

You're only as good as your last game. Lol. I have to pin my hopes on the nucks as a disenfranchised Leafs fan I gotta believe in something. Although as a Leafs fan, I am soooooo used to disappointment. Lol.

Well you can't blame Luongo for not putting the puck in the other net. Did they have to shoot every puck at ice level?

Geeze, what happened to all those mellow, laid-back Pacific Northwesterners? I didn't even know Canadians knew how to riot! Y'all up there are acting like us (Philadelphia sports fans are notorious for goon-like behavior; it's a point of civic pride. :roll: )

Boy do I remember how it feels. It was only 2004 when the Calgary Flames did the same thing, losing to Tampa Bay Lightning in game 7. But it's not worth setting the city on fire!!!

Hey, at least our rioters and looters have a modicum of decorum, curtosy and respect, I mean after all, they did pull the sofa's they torched out of the shop first before setting them alight so as not to burn down the shop. In the US your lot would of torched the whole block down to the ground. Plus I think it required by law in the US, that you must toss a virgin or few into any riot generated conflagration. :twisted: :mrgreen:

For us in the Lower Mainland, it was shades of '94. Same damn thing happened back then as well, you'ld think the cops and city would of been better prepared. A collegue of mine was downtown at the fan centre. He said that people were joking about having a riot party victory celebration after the win. After the second period, the joking stopped and the mood got really ugly, he left at that point and got out before it exploded. He also reported that for a so-called alcohol free zone, with checks at the gates, there was a lot of booze to be had and it was being drunk openly. The cops should of started shutting things down after the second period ended and cracking down on the drinking.

As for the game, someone must of forgotten to tell the Canucks to show up, coz that sure as hell was not the team who won the Presidents Trophy and handily took the Western Conference. I swear Bettman must of told them to throw the game or he would break their kneecaps.

Well that and we have a whole lot more drunken rednecks that tend to try to jump a fire and end up in it. They're more fun to watch anyway, the alcohol helps them catch quicker.

I'm a little late to this thread but living near cambie and 15th in Vancouver we could hear sirens all night and helicopters while watching it unfold on tv knowing it was about a 3 minute drive away. Not a fun night, mostly watching it in disbelief.

There was never any chance I would have been downtown though, I'm an Islanders fan so I only make a trek down to the rink once every two years when they come to town

Now the homeless are squatting in their tents under the guise of the "Occupy" movement.

It could get a bit testy when they get "removed".

As for Luongo.....lately, he's sure not earning the money he gets paid...
