Luongo, Past and Future

10/01/2007 at 4:18pm EDT

From Evan Grossman at NHL.com,

There was a doctored, photo-shopped picture circulating the Internet this summer. Under the title 2006-07 Vancouver Canucks, there was Luongo, sitting on a bench all by himself. The rest of the players from the team photo had been erased.

And while it seemed that Luongo was all alone at times last season, there were definitely 19 other players dressed for every game he played in. Only his game was so sharp last season, he was so valuable to the Canucks, that it only seemed like Luongo was doing it all on his own. Luongo was so good that even on the nights he didn’t have much support, he was really all Vancouver needed.


Good article about Luongo’s first year in Vancouver, and what he expects of himself in the future.

Not to mention, a nice reminder of how grateful I am these days, knowing that when a hockey writer/fan refers to a Canucks-goalie-photoshopped image, he’s not referring to ones like this or this anymore…
