There was a time when you couldn’t go an hour without hearing about the Canucks goaltending issues, let alone a day.

Now, it seems it’s been a month.

A lot has happened since Cory Schneider was traded to New Jersey. There is a certain calmness in net, one that hasn’t been there since Roberto Luongo’s first year with the Vancouver Canucks.

A reader sent this message Wednesday: “Do you ever get bored writing about the fact that the Canucks can’t score?”

No, because it wasn’t that long ago when it was all about the goalies.

But people have developed an immunity to Luongo’s slow starts in October. This year, barely an eyebrow raised. He’ll get better, and he has.

People have mostly accepted the odd ugly one he’ll give up, sometimes on his belly. And he’ll regularly, it seems, surrender a goal on the first shot of a game.

Yeah, been there, seen that.

Luongo’s evolution has helped defuse what was often a toxic reaction and relationship with his fans. Whether it’s his twitter persona, and it is, or his willingness to publicly accept more liability in such a public way, he has managed to expand what was once an incredibly thin margin for error.

He’s so bent on being accountable these days, he took responsibility for Tuesday’s shootout loss when he was the best player on the ice for Vancouver.

It’s more difficult to work up a rage over a player who continues to say, “Hey, my bad. I should have had that” like he did with the shootout winner.

There are more pressing issues than goaltending these days, anyway. Like how do the Canucks get assistant coach Newell Brown back?

It’s the current power play and general scoring slump that are challenging the organization, not the goaltending.

Remarkably under the radar, Luongo has recovered from his typically slowish start. He’s put together 10 solid games. He’s been beat for more than two goals only once and has a .923 save percentage.

All of this is encouraging for the player who underwent the biggest change when the team shifted from Alain Vigneault to John Tortorella.

Near the bottom of the NHL in blocked shots under Vigneault, the Canucks are now in the top five. There is no one that impacts more than the goalie. It has changed his sight lines and increased the number of deflections.

When Shawn Matthias scored the tying goal Tuesday, Ryan Stanton was trying to block it.

“It went off his stick and changed direction, and in,” Luongo said. “We seem to be getting one of those per game right now as far as unlucky breaks.”
