08:15 AM ET 09.07 | The goaltender who thought he had played his last game with the Vancouver Canucks was back skating with his old teammates Friday. Roberto Luongo, who spent all of last season expecting to be traded, admitted that it was strange to be back in Vancouver wearing a Canucks sweater again. "It was a bit odd flying in," Luongo said after training with several Canucks at the University of British Columbia. "Just when you think you've seen it all, there's always something else. I don't know what the future holds but right now I'm just focused on the season." Luongo dodged the question of whether he's happy to remain a member of the Canucks. "I've said all along I want to play," he said. "Now I have that opportunity. I want to take advantage of that and I want to win some games. I want to go as far as we can and hopefully win the Stanley Cup. It's a big year for me. I've been sitting on the bench for a while and I want to show everybody what I can do. We all know it's an Olympic year. I just want to make the best of it."

Nice to have him back in a Brian Burke kinda way. It wouldn't be a season without everybody ragging on Louie.

I'm actually hoping ( key word is "hope") that could be Bernier or Reimer's stats! It won't be Joey Macs #'s in CalGary.

Issue with the Flames is in the name of the city! Has no one noticed?
