Now, I was one of the many who didn’t place the entire blame for the Canucks crappy playoff run entirely on Roberto Luongo. It’s true, he didn’t provide the lights out goaltending that is needed to win a playoff series (see Halak).  In summary, he was good in the Los Angeles series. Great in games one, two and five and horrible in games three, four and six in the Blackhawks series. Howver, you have to remember, you win as a team and lose as a team. Regardless, one saddened Canuck fan has apparently had enough and has put Luongo up for sale on Craigslist.

The ad reads:
Goalie will play for pasta, hair gel and $7.5 million

Sulking, belligerent and grossly over-rated goaltender who can’t stop a beach ball, seeks new gig.
I promise to be the same self-absorbed bad team guy I have always been. Pay me my $7.5 M annual salary no matter how bad I play.
I will be golfing tomorrow and every day for quite some time.
You can still reach me on my hotline: Louie 1-555-SUCK.

The ad is no longer up, but it was hilarious.
