Former Canucks Calls Out the Organization for Embarrassing Move

Published September 29, 2023 at 0:49

It has been quite some time since Roberto Luongo became the only goalie to captain the Vancouver Canucks. Despite his lengthy stint with the team and the tremendous results he put up over the years there, it has long been reported that the organization has no plans to retire his number.

Schneider Stands Up For Luongo

Now another former Canucks goalie Corey Schneider has stated his opinion on this matter.

"I think his number should be retired."

Schneider, of course, went on to have quite the career himself, although most of it was spent away from the Canucks, who had drafted him 26th overall in 2004.

During his time in Vancouver, Luongo played 448 games, putting up a 252-137-50 record, a 2.36 goals against average, and a .919 save percentage. He also got a lot of Vezina consideration, finishing top five in votes three times during his eight years with the Canucks. In 2010-11, he also won a Jennings trophy with his goalie partner, non other than the aforementioned Corey Schneider.
