Rob The Hockey Guy:
This is the fourth installment of Roberto Luongo Trade Rumour Bonanza! The first three editions looked at the possibility of Luongo going to Toronto, Edmonton and Florida. Today, we look at the chances of Luongo going to the arch rival Chicago Blackhawks.
Chicago is a potential destination for Luongo first and foremost because they could use a goalie. Corey Crawford had an impressive first season as the team’s number one goalie in 2010-11, but he failed miserably last year. His GAA ballooned to 2.72 and his SV% was an unimpressive .903. Chicago is also a place that Roberto Luongo would probably love to play. It would generate big headlines and Luongo would get to be a big fish in a big pond. Contrary to some popular belief, I think Luongo craves the spotlight, even if he doesn’t always excel under it.
Another reason why the Blackhawks might be a trading partner for the Canucks is because after two straight first round exits, they’ll want to shake things up, and have so...

Roberto Luongo's future is a mystery. He appears destined to leave the Vancouver Canucks, a story we talked about here. Where will Luongo play in 2012-13? What twists and turns will life deal Luongo next?
Interestingly enough, Luongo may have a potential career doing something completely unrelated to hockey. The World Series of Poker's biggest event, the Main Event, is currently...

It’s going to be a long summer. So over the course of it I’ll be taking a look at some of Vancouver’s players who have contracts set to expire in the summer of 2013. We’ll examine the pros and cons of each player, determine their career potential and where that potential fits in with the Canucks.

We found out today via the Vancouver Canucks on Twitter and via their press release that they've re-signed Mason Raymond. It's a 1 year 2.275M contact. WOW. Congrats May-Ray. Your rich.
Queue the band in Vancouver, as this move will be met with a chorus of Boos and Jeers I'm sure.

As the summer continues without the Blackhawks having made a significant addition to their roster, the man between the pipes has remained the focus of concern for Chicago fans. Corey Crawford had a disappointing 2011-12 season. Everyone knows that, including … Continue reading →
“Just because you can skate, it doesn’t mean you’re going to have a successful time out there” – Mason Raymond.
In what is probably second only to news regarding Dale Weise in terms of making me aggravated, the Vancouver Canucks have announced that they have come to terms with restricted free agent and worlds filthiest little milt, Mason Raymond.
Raymond, as you may remember...
This week, some of the top prospects in the Blackhawks organization will get together to show each other, and the organization, how NHL-ready they might (or might not) be at this point. We’ve already looked at some of the top … Continue reading →
Reports on Tuesday afternoon are that the Chicago Blackhawks may have (unofficially) made their first trade of the offseason.

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed left wing Mason Raymond.
Raymond, 26, collected 20 points (10-10-20) in 55 games played with Vancouver in 2011.12. He also appeared in five post-season games, recording one point (0-1-1). The Cochrane, Alberta native has registered 156 career points (70...

The Vancouver Canucks re-signed forward Mason Raymond to a one-year, $2.275 million deal, TSN reported Monday. By re-signing Raymond, the Canucks avoided an arbitration hearing. Raymond, 26, had 10 goals and 10 assists in 55 regular-season games this past season. He missed the first two months of the season while recovering from a broken vertebrae sustained in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
As the first wave of free agent signings has passed and deals for big name players such as Rick Nash and Roberto Luongo remain conjecture, the Maple Leafs current roster configuration remains a puzzle.
The lone move of GM Brian Burke, adding free-agent Jay McClement was to address the teamâs lack of size, as well as adding a solid checking center, but that gives Toronto...
RALEIGH, NC – Ron Francis, Vice President of Hockey Operations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani on a one-year, two-way contract.

“Marc-Andre was in the NHL all...
