Vancouver's Goalie Controversy

It looks like Luongo will get the starts in Vancouver Now your probably reading this and saying why is this on a Bruins blog?  The answer is because I, like most Bruins fans despise the Canucks and all their antics after that 7 game Stanley Cup finals, and nothing makes me happier than seeing a team I hate so much having a bunch of problems.  At the start of the short season...
