08:29 AM ET 08.18 | Roberto Luongo, at a summer golf event, was asked about a mulligan. [Luongo] regrets the comments he made about Tim Thomas during the Stanley Cup Final, according to an interview with Radio-Canada at a golf tournament he hosted in Quebec on Tuesday. The Vancouver Canucks defeated the Bruins in Game 5 after Maxim LaPierre scored off a rebound while Thomas was outside of the paint. Following his team's 1-0 victory, Luongo criticized Thomas's style of play. When asked if he regretted what he said, Luongo admitted that he did. Translated from radio-canada.ca: "Yes, definitely," he said. "If I could do it over again, I wouldn't say it. I didn't think it would create that kind of buzz. After Game 5, I've never been that emotional and I got carried away."

And the comment still would not have mattered it anyone (cough cough Sedin, Sedin, cough cough) would have scored a goal or two.

Outscored 9-2 after that beauty, Robooby. You lost a great opportunity to keep your mouth shut. Never give the opponent an extra incentive to beat you.

Yep. He was a sieve for every game in Boston. It was downright embarrassing at points.

Not that I minded or anything.....

Love me some Thomas. Class act, and deserves that trophy.

and somewhere Thomas reads the article and is heard to mutter " Your Mamma Robbie"

Looks like the typical half hearted media apology. He didn't know it "would create that kind of buzz". What he should be doing is giving Thomas credit.

But Thomas never pumped HIS tires...

Luongo seems to be squarely on Thomas' jock. Maybe if he let go of the past and redirected some of that energy he's been wasting thinking about Thomas into his own game, someone might pump his tires for once.

Bingo. Never escalate an opponent's level of motivation.

Hank and I agree on very few things. We do on this one.

And you'd think that in the Stanley Cup Finals, that would go without saying.

How did that double up?
