You guys forget how bad the D coverage was in those games, It was brutal. Wouldnt be the last time either.
The last few months of the season last year and the playoffs was attrocious. Our best D-men were Eye humping the puck and leaving their assignments wide open. And holy crap they should have replaced Grags with any midget AAA player. Outstanding goaltending from BOTH goalies was the only reason We finished as good as we did.
In order to win vs boston our goalie has to get like 4 shutouts in a row, Has that ever happened before? Doubt it.
Mark my words, Fans will be running schneider out of town for the same crap in a few years. Canucks fans have short ???? memories....
I don't get why everyone keeps repeating "we ran Luongo out of town" and that we're "ungrateful".
- The vast majority of people I see on these forums and talk to in real life say they think Luongo is the best goalie we've had since Kirk McClean. I know I appreciate the work he has done.
- We've tried to win with Luongo for 7 years now, with no luck. The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over again while failing. It's time to move on.
- Luongo is ageing and his contract is fairly hefty. The salary cap will be lowering quite a bit in a year and we have another, younger, potentially elite goalie who has been waiting his turn for years to be a starter.
So no, I don't think the fans are ungrateful and I don't think Luongo is being run out of town. It just makes sense for the team (having tried him for several years) and for him personally (he could use a change of scenery to re-ignite his career) to move on. It's best for both of them.
