The Canuck many Bruins fans despise the most won't be wearing Vancouver colors anymore. No, Roberto Luongo hasn't been traded yet. And how could Bruins fans truly hate Luongo? His ability to motivate Tim Thomas in last year's Stanley Cup Final, not to mention his own sieve-like netminding in the three games at the Garden, were instrumental in Boston winning its first Cup in 39 years. Aaron Rome played a key role too. He also galvanized the Bruins' effort and helped turn the series around, but Boston fans were far less appreciative of that as it came at the cost...

Two former Vancouver Canucks made it to the Hockey Hall of Fame today.
Now while I hardly consider Mats Sundin a "former Canuck" I guess this time that is fine.
In my opinion though the Canucks dropped the ball this time. There should have been seperate press releases.
That much is obvious isn't it?
I digress....here is the release.
Let the Schultz-waltz begin
July 1 begins a bit early this year as Justin Schultz is now officially a free agent.
The former second-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks jumped through his final loophole Sunday night after de-registering from the University of Wisconsin back in May now finds himself the prettiest girl in the school to 30 would-be suitors.
In a year when UFA defencemen...

It has been chanted. He has been used as the scapegoat many times, and it looks like the fans in Vancouver will finally get what they want, well what they want when they are losing at least. Canucks management has been entertaining offers for their All-Star goalie, Roberto Luongo.Many thought Luongo would be traded leading into this year’s Draft. Well, the Draft has come and gone...
The 2012 NHL Draft is complete, and Roberto Luongo is still a member of the Vancouver Canucks. Many expected that he and Columbus Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash would both be traded during the draft weekend, but both remain with their current teams. While Nash is still expected to be dealt some time before the end of July, could the Canucks be planning on keep Luongo...
Hey everyone, Mitch here. Rob was crazy enough to give me some admin control so I could publish my own posts. Once you get past the grammatical errors I think we’ll get along just fine. Today I’m going to profile Dennis Wideman.

Why the Canucks might want him: Wideman might be one of the more underrated UFA defencemen on the...
This gives me chills. Still remember how much Beer I had in my glass in 1994 when Brown thread pass to Bure, and what Pub I was at too. LOL #canucks#bureinHall— Northwest SportsBeat (@NWSportsBeat) June 26, 2012

via Aaron Portzline tweets, Told by very good source #Canucks G Roberto Luongo has - to this point—declined to waive no-trade clause to go to #Blackhawks or #Leafs.
Only place Luongo is willing to be traded, as of today, is back to the Florida #Panthers.
If you are not aware, Luongo’s wife is from south Florida and still has family there.
What does a Hockey Hall of Fame resume look like? How about 1,346 NHL games, 564 goals, 785 assists and an Olympic gold medal at the 2006 Olympic games—those are the numbers that earned former Toronto Maple Leaf captain Mats Sundin a place in the Hall.
Originally drafted first overall by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft, Sundin spent a total of 13 seasons with the...
According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Post-Dispatch, Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo has declined to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Toronto Maple Leafs or Chicago Blackhawks for that matter.
Given the fact that Luongo makes his off-season home in Florida, many feel he is trying to leverage his no-trade clause in an effort to force a trade to the Florida...
I’m starting to regret calling this the “UFA of the Day” because some days we don’t have a UFA, and other days (like today), we have two! Well here at RobTheHockeyGuy, we pass the savings onto you. Today I’m focusing on one of the most intriguing and highly sought after UFAs to be: Justin Schultz.

Shanahan was up for the Hockey Hall of Fame this year and I haven't wrote about it, because, well, I figured I'd get to it when he was inducted. Because of course he'd be inducted right? Going against the likes of Bure and Sundin, talented guys but ones who never won anything, Shanny and Sakic were...
