  1. Luongo is paying decent, but he’s not playing like he did before his injury. Quite frankly instead of blaming the media for looking for a “bad goal” and calling it “unlucky”, as captain of the team he should be saying, “Yes I screwed that one up, and thankfully it didn’t come back to hurt us.

    These goals haven’t been few and far between of late they have been almost a regular occurrence scattered amongst brilliant and mediocre play.

    Luongo is held to higher standards than most goaltenders, and that comes with the territory.

    He has to be better. Goals like Sunday’s can deflate a team in a tight playoff game…*see Dan Cloutier*.

  3. I agree he has to be better. I guess my beef is that some people forget that he still makes a LOT of game-saving stops… as if he’s just completely crapped the bed.

    I don’t know if comparing his recent play to Cloutier is fair. When Cloutier let in one bad goals, he immediately let in a bunch of other bad goals (Minnesota game 7 comes to mind). Nice guy, but he just didn’t have the mental toughness to battle back. Luongo’s nothing like that.

  5. I wasn’t comparing his play to Cloutier, what I was saying is imagine ltting in a goal like the Kopitar or Tucker ones in a playoff game with the score tied 1-1.

    I’ll be publishing an article tonight that will hopefully outline my position clearer, but I think for the most part we agree.

    […] goals from the 3rd and 4th lines and they’re getting offense from their defense. Luongo, for all the criticism with regards to his puck-handling skills, is making key saves at key times. They’re playing a simple and effective game, attacking […]
