Canucks Finally Trade Roberto Luongo, Prepare To Blow Everything Up

The NHL trade deadline isn't until 3:00 EST tomorrow, and today has already been fantastic. From the nonexistent to the impactful to the hilarious to the Bryzgalov, each deal has been more fun than the last. Now Roberto Luongo is heading back to Florida, this time to hang out with his old buddy Tim Thomas, and I am… » 3/04/14 5:06pm 3/04/14 5:06pm

OK, What The Hell Is Going On With Roberto Luongo?

Not two years ago, Roberto Luongo was one of the best goaltenders in the game. He was, if not beloved by Vancouver, at least embraced as the man most responsible for making the Canucks a Cup contender. But something weird happened. He fell out of favor, even before the Canucks fell in a Game 7. This tends to happen in… » 1/22/13 2:30pm 1/22/13 2:30pm

Global BC sports anchor Barry Deley was actually out shopping when his name came up in a live lotto drawing, winning either a house or $2 million in cash.

Roberto Luongo And The Last Stand Of the Superstar Goalie

Playoff hockey belongs to goalies. But recently it's belonged to goalies you've barely heard of beforehand—think of Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Miikka Kiprusoff, Cam Ward, Ilya Bryzgalov, Nikolai Khabibulin, Michael Leighton, Ray Emery, Antti Niemi—many of whom you barely hear of afterward, too. Every goalie in that list… » 6/15/11 2:45pm 6/15/11 2:45pm

Your NHL Playoffs Open Thread

There are two game sevens on the bill tonight, with the Canucks-Blackhawks and Sabres-Flyers series both tied up, 3-3. The Bruins, meanwhile, have come back from two games down against the Canadiens and now lead 3-2.
