Maintaining a blog while working long hours at a funded internet startup is difficult; trying to do so with a new baby at home is close to impossible. You may have noticed (I know some of you have because you’ve made me aware of it) little activity recently on TendersLounge, but today I am obligated to sign back into WordPress. A surprisingly large number of you have called/emailed/twittered to get my take on the huge deal signed this week between the Vancouver Canucks and their all-world goalie Roberto Luongo. So after sending out a few emails and tweets I figured it would be better for everyone if I shared my thoughts here.
This is a great deal for:
A) the Canucks
C) Canucks’ fans
D) the NHL
The obvious answer is A, B and C (and maybe D but probably not). Luongo lands a once-in-a-lifetime contract and Canuck fans are seeing true commitment from management to bring a meaningful trophy to Stanley Cup-less Vancouver.
