Check this out. The goalie is healed. From the Vancouver Sun.
“I pounded it pretty hard and the groin is feeling fine,” said Luongo. “We pretty much explored everything today. There were some broken plays where you kind of had to react and kick your leg out and be in a bit of a vulnerable position and I didn’t have any problems. So that’s really encouraging. I’m really happy with the way things went.”
That’s what she said! To the bolded part. Sorry, not the important information in that quote. But can I get a HELL YEAH! Now the real fun can start. El Capitano is back and they can get back to kicking the NW division’s ass. They’re struggling right now, but this team is good enough to not do that for long. Hockey players must be just like us and get the January blahs. I suppose there’s no way Gillis can order Lui not to go to the washed up sorry excuse for all star game, huh? Sure, it’s exciting that it’s in his home town, and I know he’s “honoured”, but…what if he injures himself again on a meaningless save on a Daniel Sedin all star spot stealer Keith Khachuk shot? He should just kick back with the fam. Enjoy his other hobbies and such. Oh how I’ve missed hearing “Great save, Luongo!” Soon I will hear that siren song again. Drinks all around!
Oh and congrats should go to little Macey Raymond for making the Young Stars game for the sophomore side. Looks like the NHL actually remembered we have players other than Lui. Too bad they didn’t get all my memos about Jannik Hansen for the rookie side though. Meanies.
