Kukla's Korner Hockey

Here we sit in mid August. The Hockey news is running about the as slow as you could expect with no National Hockey League events lined up for a month. Teams are mostly set for their upcoming rosters, players and staff are off enjoying the rest of what has been a cool summer.
Lucky for all of us Yahoo! Sports' Harrison Mooney is at it again. Another video from the sports personality from North of the boarder - this time his sights (no pun intended - okay maybe a little intended) are set on the one and only Roberto Luongo.
This morning Mooney published on Puck Daddy a Must See: 'We Are The World' style tribute video to whom can only be assumed the starting netminder in Vancouver.
The Luongo Saga in Vancouver is far too long to re cap in a single blog post; yet the song does a good job of hitting the bases on the major points of interest.
From Mooney himself the lyrics to the video below:
Here are the lyrics to this tire fire:
This whole ordeal has gone completely out of hand
Slipped from our control just like grains of Florida sand
Cory Schneider's gone now and Lu we need you back
Without you it's a one-two punch of Ericsson and Lack
We wrote you a simple song
We know that we did you wrong
We booed you, we mistreated you, we rioted
Save us like you save the pucks
Come back, we are all Canucks
It's a big old goal and we need you inside it
You wanted out -- understandable, it was
But there was no escaping from the cap recapture clause
Mike Gillis tried to trade you, it didn't go so well
Instead the place you find yourself is sucky contract Hell
We know that mentally you're gone
And coming back might feel so wrong
When you can't find the strength to carry on
Just find the strength to carry on
Some things in life are like a soap opera and in the hockey world Luongo's situation is bringing in the top ratings. Everyone has something to say about the next topic that comes up. Including lines like "Someone needs to pump Luo's tires" when he posted a picture of his car on Twitter last night - minus the tires from an apparent burglary.
Even Mooney used a pun to introduce his lyrics to the video about the tire theft.
My question to you: Are there any other players that could probably use an apology video from the fans?
