The reason vancouver is considered a goalie graveyard is because we get reasonably to immensly talented goalies, expect them to win the jennings, vezina, and stanley cup in the first 2 years they are here, and as soon as that doesnt happen, the fans/media belittle them and show absolutely no confidence therefore turning them into head cases and inevitably ruining their game. Luongo is not the cure to the goalie graveyard, but he will be the greatest goalie destroyed by fans that expect way too much. Since luongo has gotten here he has won the jennings, been nominated for the vezina twice, and been to the stanley cup finals, and yet he gets the most disrespect.
There is no one else to blame but the fans/media.
All the douchebag fans who berate Luongo night in and night out, should ask themselves: "How many goalies in the league would you trade Luongo for straight up?"
I bet you can't name that many. You could maybe name a few. What does that mean? It means Luongo, despite his faults, is still in the upper echelon of goaltenders in this league. There are so many other teams who have much craptier goaltending, and yet this ???? fanbase just complains and complains.
It's pathetic. We should be happy we have a goaltending tandem as strong as we do.
