Did Luongo Ask ‘Out’ Of Today’s Game In Boston?

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Maybe Roberto Luongo should stop wondering why nobody else ever wants to pump his perpetually saggy tires?

The Vancouver Canucks goaltender has once again created a firestorm of criticism by simply doing what everybody predicted “Bobby Lou” would choose in the first place: taking the easy way out.

No matter what the Vancouver coaching staff posited publicly as the reasoning behind it, Luongo opted out of the difficult challenge facing down his demons against the Bruins at TD Garden.

It’s the perfect example of “Bobby Lou just being Bobby Lou.”

A Boston reporter writting an article based on no evidence whatsoever, trying to put crap on Luongo’s head!  Who would imagine that!

And Im no Luongo/Canucks fan whatsoever…  Sad when things get so bad

Have to agree with Zqto.  I’m not a Louie fan, but Schneider does have a better save %, he hasn’t played in over a week, and Van is heading to Florida (where Louie used to play) where they have back to backs with the Panthers and Lightning.  It’s the coach using the goalie who gives him the best chance to win.  That’s where Louie should feel bad.

Regardless, Vancouver will never win a Cup with Luongo.

I highly doubt Luongo didn’t want to play the Bruins. This article, if you can even call it that, is laughable. I seriously hope you don’t get paid for this.

Such BS. Cory Schneider is a Massachusettes boy. I bet that has far more to do with it than any perceived character flaw in Luongo.

I prefer “Lu-Long-over-rated”, but “Bobby Lou” works as well.

As a Hawks and Bruins fan, i’m proud to say i’ve seen him pulled several times !
