-Roberto Luongo, still with the Vancouver Canucks.  More at TSN.

added 3:16pm, If you want more from Luongo, Puck Daddy has a partial transcript of the interview.

I would lose it if he goes to the Leafs, in a maniacal laughter kind of way

I hope no one is seriously considering giving up more than a couple of mid-late round draft picks for him.

He probably had that written from the day he signed with the Canucks.  He’s probably in his study furiously drafting his letter of apology to the next fan base he’s going to disappoint.

“I’d like to thank the people of ______ for 4 good years.  I’m really disappointed we weren’t able to win a Cup, or even get out of the second round, but I truly believe every single person on this team gave their all, and my memories of ______ will be nothing but positive.”

“Also, all your checks cashed, which is really the most important thing.”

Uhhh. He took them to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Give me a break people, he is a world class goaltender and deserves more respect.

Yeah, it’s because of him.

He was pulled twice in the first round and replaced by Schneider.  Only reason he even got back into the series was that Schneider got hurt.

Did you actually watch him play?

Obviously Roberto Luongo was brought in to be the goaltending savior and it just never happened, but so far, I feel that both Luongo and the Canucks organization have handled this divorce fairly well.

Could he deal with ‘Chelsea Dagger’ in Chicago?

“I like that song. It’s catchy. I heard it seven times in one game.”

“You keep pitchin’ em’, and I keep… lettin’ em’ in from center ice…”

He won 15 games on the way to the game 7 loss to Boston in the ‘11 Finals. Schneider did what? This year Schneider took the reigns, absolutely. You can’t discount 15 wins in the playoffs, and if you do, you are a fool.
