Out of all the players in the NHL, Roberto Luongo, former Canuck and current Panther is the best of the best. His twitter handle @strombone1, is absolutely hilarious and if you’ve never read his tweets, you definitely should spend some time doing it! From making fun of his goals against, to coaches and even fans sending in the wrong picture, it’s been a really awesome.
Hailing from Vancouver, I really liked what Roberto brought to the Canucks franchise. The organization was known for being a “goalie graveyard” by not having a solid goaltender since 1998 when Kirk Mclean was the backstopper for the Canucks. Roberto joined the team in 2006 and posted 47 wins that regular season. For me, I was happy the turntable of goaltenders were over and we had a legitimate goaltender in our net.
Of course, after much media attention – we know how his time ended with the Canucks but I’ve been happy to have met Roberto in person. He’s been awesome with fans and the city here in Vancouver. He’ll definitely go down as one of the best goaltenders to have ever played the game.
Thank you Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
