Which is why I posted MY opinions of why I wouldnt play here, yet no, everyone has to attack me
Im not sure why you are not getting this. You posted YOUR opinions as if they were that of what a player would use as reason not to play here, when in reality they were just your reasons. You are of course allowed to have your own opinions and express them as such, but when you start pushing your opinions as gospel, people get defensive.
To go back to your original reason why Luongo chose to stay here, when he could have simply chosen to go somewhere else. Simple. Ego. But not in the way you might think. He was not getting the respect nor the accolades playing in a small market like Florida. He considers himself one of the greatest goalies in the world and thus wants the praise that goes with it. But along with that praise (and that money) comes scrutiny from media and fans alike. Its part of the job in playing for a big market, and he knew the deal when he chose to sign that extension.
By his own admission he needs to play better and deserves to hear it from the crowd when he is under performing. Start playing like you can and in less games that it took for them to turn, they will be praising.
If he cant handle that kind of pressure. Then guess what? He is not one the worlds elite goaltenders, because the elite manage to find a way to deal with all that comes with being called 'the best in the world.'
