Report: Luongo’s Vancouver penthouse on the market

The penthouse of Vancouver Canucks’ goalie Roberto Luongo is on the market, according to a report from the Vancouver Sun.

As per the report, the penthouse in Yaletown – a section of downtown Vancouver, near Rogers Arena, where the Canucks play – is on the market for $4.2 million.

This should only fuel speculation as to the future of Luongo and, on a larger scale, the Canucks’ goaltending situation.

There was yet more drama Sunday when Cory Schneider, who hadn’t played since April 22 due to an undisclosed injury, got the start over Luongo in Game 3 of the Western Conference quarter-final between the Canucks and San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks won easily and Schneider was pulled early in the third period in favor of Luongo, who started the first two games of the series and played very well, despite back-to-back losses.

Luongo says he will be ready for Game 4 – an elimination game the Canucks must win in order to avoid being swept out of the first round of the post-season – against the Sharks on Tuesday, should head coach Alain Vigneault call on him to save Vancouver’s season.

    The ‘nucks are cooked. This team won’t look the same next year, from the coach on down.

    I was always more of a High Society fan myself.

    I didn’t know I was reading a tabloid? I thought this was ProHockeyTalk.

      The implication is that Luo has no intention of being around in the near future. Which is relevant to NHL hockey. So you’re actually not reading a tabloid, you’re just really confused about your surroundings.

        Umm, I think all the trade talk put that debate to rest. He has no choice. And, if I remember correctly, he was honest when he said he wanted to get traded and was disappointed when he wasn’t. I also remember after the fact when he said he would do his best for the hockey club he plays for.

        The subtitle said it best – “speculate”. Thus the tabloid jab.

        To this point he has played better than Schneider (understanding he may be battling an injury).

        He does have a choice, he has a full NMC.

        with all due respect friends, your shepherd is calling you !

    @mrbizplan it’s only a tabloid when it comes to Lou and Cory. Here, anything those two do is a story.

    ROBERTO MADOFF ?

    The bottom line friends is that Luongo’s ‘swank & hollow’ Yaletown condo will sell for at least 40% “less” than the original purchase price … much like his own idiotic ‘AIG-sized’ contract with the Canucks. I personally have no sympathy for these “agents of greed” and therefore “good riddance” to the lot of them say !

    May good always prevail ….

      Thank god for your videos. Here I was concerned aobut North Korea’s idiot, Syrian Chemical weapons, Iran Nuke factory, and the Market value of Luo’s digs! 3 out of 4 is batting .750. So now I can chill out and enjoy another day at White Rock Beach and not think about hockey games or any other thug activity.
      Hope you went to Washington and bought wine and beer for half the price of Ripoff BC ! Cheers

        may the excellent commenter known as “Badintent” soon come to encounter armies of attractive women and lakes of fine wine … inshallah ! :)

        So as I cross the Blaine line of waiting pain Off to Trader Joes and Safeway. Then down to Oregon for some red wine wineries and the usual suspects in Portland. Ya whooo !

      • badintent - May 11, 2013 at 3:24 AM

        Let me know when you are coming to Vancouver. we must discuss the finer wines and women in life( even if they are our wifes ! )

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Philly was interested in Luongo, they can buy Bryz out with an amnesty and get luongo for a fair deal.

    • blomfeld - May 7, 2013 at 3:26 AM

      he’s headed for Florida friend … no two ways about it …

    This should have been a salary dump by Vancouver last year. But the fools who run that organization actually tried to get real players back in exchange. When the cost of the contract exceeds the value of a player, you should get nothing. They could have used the money saved to invest in other players. Instead they have over $10M in goalies on their cap. MORONS!!!!!!
