Canucks and Beyond

Fighting Words

In a blog post arguing the domination of the Western Conference over the East, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News shares some nice and/or neutral comments about every team… until he’s forced to write a blurb on the Canucks:

12. Vancouver Canucks - Lack of offensive support could cause Luongo to implode

Far be it from me to say anything particularly complimentary about the Canucks lately, but I think it’s fair to assume that Roberto Luongo is already well-acquainted with the words “lack of offensive support.”

While the Canucks were a scoring powerhouse back in the 2005-06 season (252 goals) they’ve been in the tank ever since Luongo joined the team—207 goals last season and 217 the year before. And last year was particularly bad, given the Canucks’ battle with blueline injuries much of the season.

I figure if Luongo was ever going to implode, we’d have seen it by now.
