Roberto is the only reason we didn't get swept in the finals.
Those are some very interesting stats and I hadn't thought about it before... when the canucks lose they lose big in the playoffs. End of the day it doesn't matter if u lose by one goal or by five. Like we saw in the hawks series: we got out scored and won the series. The deciding factor in the series was the goaltending.
Luongo came into his own in 2009-2010. He was very shaky in the playoffs prior to those years... the paSt two year luongo has been clutch. I wouldn't take any other goalie over him... he stands on his head when it matters.
What exactly are you on right now? Your post makes absolutely zero sense.
It doesn't matter if you lose by 1 goal or 5? What if your'e down 4-0 after the 1st period? Doesn't it matter if the game is already over 20 minutes in?
Luongo came into his own in 09/10 and he was shaky in the playoffs prior to that? Luongo's first 3 series were probably his best ever (Dallas, Anaheim, St.Louis), he went downhill after that.
Luongo's been clutch the last 2 years?? That's very debatable.
He stands on his head when it matters?? Maybe I'm wrong but I think these games mattered a lot.
