Ranking all the number 1s in Canucks history, from Luongo to Ouellet

Ranking all the number 1s in Canucks history, from Luongo to Ouellet

The Florida Panthers announced last week that Roberto Luongo would be the first player in franchise history to have his number retired. It makes sense: Luongo is the best goaltender in Panthers’ history, holding the franchise records for most wins, saves, and shutouts. Despite his lack of individual awards — he got robbed of the Vezina by Martin Brodeur in 2007 and arguably in 2004 as well — he’s a solid bet to make the Hockey Hall of Fame. The only debate is whether he’ll be a first-ballot hall of famer or have to wait a year or two after he becomes eligible.
