This is my final post making the Hall of Fame case for the 2012 Hall of Fame inductees. I have written posts about Pavel Bure, Adam Oates and Joe Sakic. Today it is Mats Sundin’s turn.
I make my cases using the Keltner List. This is a series of qualitative questions popularized by Bill James in baseball, but the same idea works well in hockey as well.

I like this move. Do you?
Just when it looked on Sunday, July 1st as though Vancouver would be celebrating Canada Day and NHL Free Agency in a very low key way, a big bottle of Crown Royal was broken out late on with the signing of defenceman Jason Garrison from the Florida Panthers.
(They are of course officially the exclusive supplier of Vancouver Canucks players for the past ten...
We've known for along time that Roberto Luongo loves his poker.
Now we've found out today via The Vancouver Sun that his 2012 World Series Of Poker Tourney fee which is played in Las Vegas will be picked up by the B.C. Lottery Corp.

Luongo was originally scheduled to be on Vancouver's 99.3 the Fox to talk about the World Series of Poker. However, the discussion shifted to hockey and where he might play next season following the Canucks...
Roberto Luongo has left Vancouver. OK, it's only for a brief trip to Las Vegas, where he will be participating in the World Series of Poker this week. But if there were any doubts that the trade rumors swirling around the Canucks netminder were going to come to fruition, Luongo did a pretty good job erasing them on Friday. Luongo spoke for the first time since the end of the...
Playing GMMG For A Day
While Vancouver Canucks fans patiently wait out a trade for goalie Roberto Luongo, I thought it would be fun to play the I’m Mike Gillis game again.
This time instead of eating as many lobster stuffed tacos as I can and drinking enough red wine to fill a bath tub, I’m going to focus on a trade. The focus of that trade is Bobby Ryan.
I’ll be honest, I’m...
Today we learned via the Vancouver Canucks team website that they've signed Patrick Mullen.

It’s been the summer of trade rumours for Roberto Luongo, the first since he arrived in Vancouver six years ago. After the signing of Cory Schneider, the writing is on the wall and he knows it. Recently he confirmed what everyone knew all along:
At the end of the day, it’s time to move on and I’m okay with that
And there it is. If there was any doubt left in anyone’s mind...
Where will Roberto Luongo play in 2012-13? Is his time with Vancouver finally coming to an end? Will the reign of Cory Schneider in net finally begin? Will the day come where Luongo finally admits to his secret life as the movie star Sacha Baron Cohen? All of these questions have been swirling around Vancouver since the Canucks were ousted from the playoffs by the Los Angeles Kings...

After a couple months of constant chatter, it is getting to the point where no one knows for certain if the Maple Leafs are interested in obtaining Roberto Luongo from the Vancouver Canucks or if the veteran goaltender is interested in coming to another pressure packed Canadian market.
Rumors of the 33-year-old goaltender be unwilling to waive his no trade clause to go to Toronto...
Roberto Luongo was on 99.3 The Fox's "The Jeff O'Neill Show" and endured a 22 minute in-depth interview, most of which is about his future in the NHL.
"I'd rather not talk specific right now," Luongo told CFOX-FM 99.3. "I've always said I like playing in Chicago."
A Red Wings fan called into the show trying to convince Luongo that his...
