NHL goalie has tires stolen off SUV

There’s a “pump his tires” joke in here somewhere. Everything seems to have gone downhill for Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo since losing to the Bruins in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final. Since then, he has suffered an injury, lost his starting job and has not been traded despite the fact that it appeared he was expecting to be before this season’s trade deadline. Now, it seems...

Video: Canucks fans sing song for Roberto Luongo

The Vancouver Canucks’ goaltending crisis mercifully ended in June, when Cory Schneider was traded to New Jersey, leaving Roberto Luongo as the guaranteed starter. Many Canucks fans had wanted Schneider as the starting netminder after Luongo’s perceived “choking” in the playoffs, but the Luongo-Schneider saga caused an annoying headache amongst the Vancouver faithful, and...

Now he’s stuck in Canada, and today didn’t help his year any. CBS Sports is reporting that Luongo tweeted a picture of his SUV on four flats thanks to some thieves ripping him off for his tires: At least the robbers were...

Robert Luongo gets his wheels stolen

Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo took to Twitter on Tuesday share an incident in what looks like the driveway of his home.  It’s someone’s driveway, let’s put it at that. Luongo apparently had a good laugh about the missing wheels on his white SUV, telling us how nice the crooks were for not taking the whole car…

Player Interview: Eddie Lack

John Tortorella Is A Ticking Time Bomb In Vancouver

(Photo by Rich Lam/Getty Images) By Sean Hartnett (@HartnettHockey)  John Tortorella is in the infancy of tenure as head coach of the Vancouver Canucks.
