Luongo ready to return – Is Sanford the odd man out?

Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo is just about ready to reurn (this Thursday) and as a result of his return the Canucks will have a decision to make regarding their other two goalies.

Both Curtis Sanford and Jason Lebarbera have filled in during Luongo’s injury however Lebarbera appears to have the upper hand as the player to take over as Luongo’s backup. Lebarbera was acquired from the Kings when Sanford when down with a groin injury and has played very well when given his chance to play. Now with all of the goalies healthy it appears that the Canucks will have to move out one of the goalies and HTR believes that Curtis Sanford is likely the odd man out.
