08:24 AM ET 10.26 | This, unfortunately for Roberto Luongo, is not a time for nuance, and it doesn't quite matter to the Canucks' faithful that on Tuesday night he wasn't the team's worst player. After a few days basking in relative anonymity, thanks in large part to the acquisition of David Booth from the Florida Panthers this past weekend, the Canucks' $63-million goalie will undoubtedly be back in the public spotlight -- if not the editorial pages of the city's tabloid newspaper -- after giving up three goals in a span of 4:02 early in the second period of Vancouver's 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers at Rexall Place on Tuesday. ... He was hardly the worst player on the ice against the Oilers, but he's been an easy target.

Hey Nucks, I hear there is a Monster of a goalie in TO you might want. No worse than what you already have.....

So who else let in three goals in four shots?

For Canuck fans, it's one day closer to 2018, which is when the contract runs out. For the rest of us.....

hahahahahahahaha!

I wonder if Thomas would have gotten to those shots Luongoal? Go ask him, I'm sure he can give you a few pointers.

Well, the goalie in TO has had physical heart problems, Luongoal has no heart.

I'm sure the reverse of their signs says "**ck the `nucks". Just in case.

Wrong Danny.

The 'protesters' are a useless waste of oxygen so they like the Nux and especially Booby Loo.

This guy's in trouble. If his confidence isn't totally shot yet it will be shortly

October 26, 2011  09:56 AM ET

Well only 6 more years of this thread...

The bigger problem is ole greaseball's arrogance doesn't allow him to see a problem.

Its the money. Has to be. Look at what Vokoun signed for and he's playing out of his mind. Know why? No big money pressure. He can just play his gamne without worrying about that huge cap hit and what effect it's having on his team if he can't play up to that standard. Bryz might be going through some of that now.
