The Canucks traded Schneider to the Devils making Roberto Luongo their number one goalie. Here are two reasons why Luongo is great for the Canucks.
1. Verbal abuse makes him grow.
The more people who talk bad about Luongo the better he plays. Clearly Luongo thrives on proving people wrong. This is perfect since Torts is known for ripping players a new one.
2. He makes you hate the Canucks a little less.
It’s a fairly well known fact that the Canucks are one of the most hated NHL teams. They are like that annoying little kid who won’t shut up in public. You know, the kid who you wish was your kid so you could smack them around. Between Luongo’s tweets and his silly antics you forget a moment that Luongo is on that dreadful team.
