According to TSN, rookie backup Eddie Lack will make a third straight start ahead of Luongo when the Canucks play the Ottawa Senators on Sunday (4 p.m. ET, CBC, RDS, NBCSN). Though neither goalie nor coach John Tortorella would confirm it, another start for Lack puts the Canucks right back where they were before surprising everyone by keeping Luongo and trading Cory Schneider at the 2014 NHL Draft.

Year after year, Luongo earns the respect of MANY around the league.

I don't know whats gotten into management's head...but its fucking painful to watch

We sit here thinking that Aquaman has had Luongo's back from day 1
Now, i'm not so sure

Lu should STFU IMO. He signed a ridiculous contract with a goofball organization. He's getting paid $100 million to play a sport. Shut up and do your job, even if that means sitting on the bench while younger, hungrier, better goalies get the start.

Vancouver as a whole is fucked up. The players, management, fans, media. Turns every little thing into a big thing. If we ever drafted Crosby we probably would of ran him out of the city.

Uhh no.

Vancouver is not fucked up. The franchise is lucky that Vancouver (as fair weather as it's accused to be) is what it is... one of the most profitable franchises in the league because of who we are.

If the players don't want to be on the headlines, if the players don't want to matter, if players never want to have that spot light:

a) Then aspire to be in a franchise who can't even give away their tickets with a free hot dog.

or

b) Don't be in a profession where media and "exposure" is a big part of your job description, especially when a sport you're in wants to market itself commercially.




Stop blaming the fucking media. Stop blaming the fucking fans. This franchise is struggling (hockey-wise) not because of what the media writes, not because of what we say as fans, but rather it's because the players themselves aren't really delivering.

To me there's no loyalty at the club, Lu has been the essential team mate and gets put through the wringer for the last couple of years.

If we're not going to be a contender in the playoffs and get swept, I rather we not make it so the Aquilinis don't make the extra few millions for the 2 games. It's ridiculous the ticket prices for a sub par product.

Lu is the only reason why Lu is not starting.

Yes you can say this year it's not Lu's fault we're losing all those games but other than last year, every year he's been given the starting job for him to lose.

And he's been losing it every year, a year after the SCF fail.


Luongo aside, I do agree that management is fucked. We've been losing talent steadily for a while now.

1. we jaded Grabner
2. we lost Hodgson (management accusing him of being a problem player)
3. trading Schneider (because management can't find a buyer for Luongo - they miscalculated his value)
4. now Kesler wants out (asked for a trade)


Whatever the REAL reasons are behind those departures, it still an unsettling fact that we have a steady string of skill player departures.

There are so many whiners and complainers, and I'm not talking about Lu. He's the type of guy that would be disappointed to not start EVERY game.

Those who are buying in to the 'specialness' of the HC have bought in hard to the NHL marketing machine. It's just another regular season game against an also struggling Ottawa team with whom we have NO rivalry and aside from the 2 pts we need this game doesn't really have any significance.

as disappointed as many people are. From Day 1 of Torts, i didn't expect him to show any loyalty to anyone as he doesn't need to because he owes this team NOTHING

You can't expect management to come in and say, LU has to start. its not gonna happen

Its great to be a Canucks fan isn't it. haha

Watched the CBC panel after the Oilers/Flames game and they mentioned Lu was pretty upset and vocal about not starting today.

It seems like there's never ending drama with the Canucks. First the Kesler rumors, the entire ordeal with Lu last night now Lu been pissed off when really he should have got a chance to play despite how Lack is playing and the way this team has played throughout this season you really begin to wonder when the owners are going to wake up and realize that the buzz for the Canucks is slowly and painfully dying off in this city.

If this team misses the playoffs which it's starting to look like they will and no big trade is made, the claim to fame about having sell outs is going to mean shit when half the fans don't show up to the games. I've been a hardcore Canucks fan for two decades but even I can't physically sit and watch a entire Canucks game anymore. This team is beyond awful and what pisses me off even more is the compete level amongst the so called "leaders" of this team. It's disgraceful and it's even more disgraceful when the owners expect us to pay ticket prices which should be reserved for cup winners, not bottom feeders.

Lu not starting the last two games is fine. Lack played great but Lu should start this game. It just creates more drama where there wasn't any. Let's not fuck around...I still trust Luongo more than I trust Lack in net when it's on the line. Lack is still an unproven rookie.

Unless a Luongo trade is happening, Lu should start this game. He seems to have forgiven management for fucking around with him for a whole season and went right back to playing well. Why be a dick to the guy that you have for another million years? Unless he's being traded.

Now they are in a terrible spot. If they see the backlash and decide to play Lu over Lack, Lu is probably so frazzled hes going to have a bad game and lose 1-0 and the loss will be blamed on him and the whole "Shoulda played Lack/Schneider" starts again.


I dont care how well Lack has been. Lu is your starting goalie and has played fairly well too. The canucks told him this is his team this year when they boggled the trade at the draft. And now your starting goalie has played like 1 game in the last month. You gotta treat your key players with some respect. Notice how Vancouver was always 'in the running' but could never land a big FA over the last few seasons? How many did we miss out on? Maybe there is a reason for that. Maybe the shiney new locker room isnt enough to make up for the terrible management.

It's about respect man. Schneider was the hottest goalie in the NHL when their outdoor game came up, but Brodeur still started because the organization respects him and treats him appropriately... I can't say the same for the Canucks. I realize it didn't work out so well in that game for Brodeur, but that's beside the point and it's not like starting Lu gives us less a chance of winning.

Canucks done fugged up for realz if Lack is starting.

Totally agree. Sadly.the torts we know isn't gonna take crap from anyone.

One has to wonder what the hell drives Luongo after being crapped on year after year.

The employee/employer relationship is so fucked up between luongo, management, and ownership

So 3 scenarios can happen today.

1) Luongo is the starter and was from the start and the media screwed up

2) lack was gonna start but because of the media they do a last minute switch to luongo starting

3) lack was the starter and will be starting
