Roberto Luongo needs a tire pump. Fast. The Canucks' netminder had an ugly night on Tuesday, allowing three goals on just 14 shots and getting yanked from the game just 6:55 into the second period of what turned out to be a 3-2 loss to Edmonton. On his way to the bench (a path Bruins fans have seem him travel several times), Luongo slammed his stick against the boards in frustration...

The Vancouver Canucks are pulling out of a slow start to the season, and they feel the addition of David Booth may expedite that process.
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is looking to continue his own impressive start for the Edmonton Oilers - and stay in the NHL.

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...
