So the Vancouver Canucks Summer Summit 2012 was today where Season Ticket Holders were allowed into Rogers Arena to watch the Canucks Prospects (drafted and undrafted, signed and unsigned) go through their first day of on ice training.
Afterwards, there was a question and answer session with Mike Gillis, Rick Bowness, Stan Smyl and the 2011 and 2012 Canucks 1st Round Draft picks, Nicklas Jensen and David Gaunce.
And announced at said Q & A session was this: the club has agreed to a contract deal with Canucks back up goaltender Cory Schneider.
And so reports say that Cory is to stay for 3 years in exchange for 12 million.
So, what are we going to do about Roberto Luongo?
Is he staying or is he going?
Rumour has it that dear Roberto Luongo is in fact leaving Vancouver and that he actually wishes to do so.
And I don’t blame him.
Considering the way we’ve been treating him here…I just…don’t blame him.
But that’s what the rumours say.
So far nothing has been announced about our number 1 goaltender and his 12 year multi million dollar deal, but if dear Roberto Luongo DOES leave Vancouver, I wish him all the best of luck wherever he goes.
But the good news is, Cory Schneider is staying! Good job Cory! You’ve worked hard and you deserve it!
