nj.com – As always, the Flyers enter the season with a question mark in net. That’s sparked rumors of an interest in Roberto Luongo. Of course, the Flyers already have Ilya Bryzgalov on the roster. It all depends on who you believe these days to determine the accuracy of the Flyers’ interest in Luongo. If it’s the Flyers and the local media you trust, then general manager Paul Holmgren hasn’t even checked in with the Vancouver Canucks about their embattled goaltender. … And then there is the other side of the story. The Canadian and national media chirps a different tune. TVA’s Enrico Ciccone and TSN’s James Duthie say the Flyers’ interest is real. Adrian Dater of the Denver Post chimed in with a similar take. “Don’t believe Flyers public denials on being interested in Luongo. They’re VERY interested,” Dater said in a recent tweet.
So I hear these fake ass Roberto Luongo rumors are heating up. But we all know that shit ain’t happening. He makes a billion dollars and has lost his mojo, we already got that guy in our pipes. Except our guy is a hilarious Russian philosopher and Luongo is a tan Edward Scissorhands.
What’s really going on here is a classic “playing hard to get” situation between Vancouver and Toronto. It’s like in Clueless when Silverstone sends herself flowers to try and make gay Luke Perry jealous. The Canucks (Silverstone) have made the Flyers the fake boyfriend in order to jack up the price on Toronto (gay Luke Perry). Classic gay Canadian trickery at its finest.
Nobody wants Luongo anymore anyways. He’s just a name at this point in his career, which makes him a perfect fit for busted ass Toronto.
LET’S GO FLYERS!
