With two days off between playoff games, we all needed something to talk about. Thankfully, Roberto Luongo came through when we needed it the most. He famously stated that the goal Tim Thomas allowed in game five would have been “an easy save” for him due to his positioning. When the world exploded over that comment, Luongo said “I have been pumping his tires ever since the series started. I haven’t heard one nice thing he had to say about me. That’s the way it is.”
Tim Thomas replied by saying “I guess I didn’t realize it was my job to pump his tires… I guess I have to apologize for that.”
Of course, we did some digging and found out that the Tim Thomas/Roberto Luongo relationship goes back much further than previously known. Luongo has been searching for acceptance from Thomas for a very long time, only to be shut down at every turn.
We gained access to the following messages through nefarious means.
