News and Notes: Luongo out for a while

  • Roberto Luongo (abductor strain) is listed by the Canucks as being week-to-weekThe original word was five weeks so this injury isn’t minor.  Obviously it is a huge blow to the Canucks. 
  • Joe Sakic will miss tonight’s game for the Avalanche because of a root canal.  For a guy who has missed the past couple games with a back injury and was slated to return tonight, he just can’t catch a break.
  • Stars winger Steve Ott (broken hand) will be out of the line-up for the next monthNow Sean Avery can have the pest spotlight all to himself.
  • Pierre LeBrun’s take on today’s St. Louis-Toronto trade. As I said earlier today, I like this deal for St. Louis.
  • James Mirtle has Cliff Fletcher’s perspective on the deal for the Globe & Mail.  Candid comments by Fletcher.
  • Darren Eliot says the Canucks and Bruins are the two most pleasant surprises this season.  Agreed.
