Hockey: That Didn't Take Long

So I predicted that it would be three games before the Canucks fans were disappointed with Goalie Roberto Luongo, and I was wrong; it was five. After one bad game and four brilliant ones, I've now had three seperate conversations with Canucks fans about how lousy Luongo (considered by most to be in the top five goaltenders in the world) is at breakaways.

One gem:
"It would take $20 for a 6'x4' sheet of plywood to fix the holes in his game."

Of course, if they did draft a chunk of plywood, the fans would be saying "Yeah, his numbers are okay, but his rebound control sucks."

Vancouver: where goalies go to die.
