Video: Canucks fans sing a song for Roberto Luongo
The Vancouver Canucks’ goaltending crisis mercifully ended in June, when Cory Schneider was traded to New Jersey, leaving Roberto Luongo as the guaranteed starter. Many Canucks fans had wanted Schneider as the starting netminder after Luongo’s perceived “choking” in the playoffs, but the Luongo-Schneider saga caused an annoying headache amongst the Vancouver faithful, and even in the Canucks locker room.
But now, with Schneider gone, Vancouver fans have welcomed, or at least accepted, Luongo as the starting goaltender from here on out. One group of fans had an especially creative way to show their support for Luongo: “through the majesty of song,” as Ron Burgundy would say.
