NHL: 2019-20

Recommended Posts

Luongo is calling it a career. Seems like Bob to Florida is a forgone conclusion at this point.

One of the all time greats. The only thing missing in his CV is really the bloody Stanley Cup. Too bad he was not on a proper championship team for most of his career. Yes, he was there when the Canucks had their small window of opportunity, but he really did not get as many shots at the Cup as Brodeur, and neither were the Canucks as good as Roy's Avalanche teams.

But with Bobby Lou out of the picture, I feel no longer obliged to wish a team from bloody Florida good fortunes in hockey.

He also never won a Vezina.

Not really that big on individual awards in a team sports. So I honestly did not think of the Vezina.

I think Ryan Miller, or Carey Price would happily trade their Vezina's for a Stanley Cup. However, how has Luongo not won that thing in 04 (?), I mean he was playing behind a horrible team, and still kept them being somewhat comeptitive in most games.

Well, most of the best goalies have both. :P

As far as 2004, Luongo didn’t have much of a chance since Brodeur also had a really good season that year, including 11 shutouts. And of course because the Panthers didn’t make the playoffs. Think Bob was the first to finally win one on a non-playoff team in 2013. It took like 80 years.

Well, the Pens traded Kessel to the Coyotes for Alex Galchenyuk and  a D prospect. Guess it's not a bad return and frees up a little cap space, but honestly I'd rather have seen them get rid of Sullivan if it had to be one or the other. It's hard to replace a point per game player, even with his defensive liabilities.

Sounds like Panarin is headed to the Islanders. At least it’s not the Rags. Sucks it’s another Metro team though.

Panarin to the Rangers and Bobrovsky to the Panthers.

11x7 for Panarin and 10x7 for Bobrovsky apparently.

Devils traded for Russian star Nikita Gusev. Never played a game for VGK, but he’s been the best player in the world outside of the NHL the last couple seasons. Ray Shero is really making Taylor Hall’s choice to re-sign or not easier.
