And those who look at the evidence to date and feel that Luongo just doesn’t have a championship in him had better be prepared to dine on those words if he ever does pull it off.

Shortly after the Rangers beat the Cardinals 4-2 in Game 5 of the World Series, Dirk Nowitzki tweeted some advice to his favorite baseball team
Given all the fuss about goaltending around these parts, Bodog is glad to make some money off the argument. Here are their odds on what has apparently become the Annual October Debate in this province:

It's been a fairly underreported story, but apparently Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo was replaced in Tuesday night's loss to the Edmonton Oilers by backup Cory Schneider and apparently Schneider will make a scheduled start against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night with Luongo on the bench.
(Which means he'll probably pitch a shutout, and give his coach...
Canucks blogger points out there's a massive history of trades between the Vancouver Canucks and Florida Panthers in the NHL. As shocking as the timing of the David Booth trade was, the fact the deal occured with the Panthers was about as easy to predict as the crowd reaction when Roberto Luongo lets in a goal.
