09:43 AM ET 08.24 | Shortly after John Tortorella gave assurances that Roberto Luongo just wanted to play and had a good mindset for training camp with the Canucks, the long-awaited word from Luongo has come down. The drama can end for now. Luongo, who had remained silent since Cory Schneider was surprisingly traded at the draft early this summer, spoke with James Duthie of TSN about the whole situation, the first time he's spoken. Some suggested that Luongo was so unhappy that he might not show up to camp in Vancouver for this season. Don't worry, Canucks fans, he'll be there, and will be extremely motivated to boot. So for now the drama is done but Luongo told Duthie he still isn't sure about his future in Vancouver.

We'll see. He doesn't have Corey to worry about anymore. Just him and his big ego, but how well can his ego block shots?

Once Lulongo's heard about the 'three fingers' treatment, he can hardly wait to report!

Ship. We're talkin' about a sinking ship CRUISE-liner) here though (don't forget the Sweedie-pie cop-out), and Rob was one of the rats already planning his exit = no saviour here. Frankly don't think he has it in him, either. I guess it's gotta be re-Torts by now though, eh.

Van. weakness is Torts strengths, and also some passion will be in evidence behind the bench. Watch him ban those green men first thing

It's called an unreasonable contract, but if he doesn't show up.......do they take away the house in Florida and move him and wifey to Surrey. He won't look out of place ;)

KHL = peewee hockey by big men who get paid too much, and yes I've watched a game, but they were 40 min periods as everyone moves at half speed.

Oh and ya wanna staged fights? Have a look!
