Dang guys, I agree Schneider should have a few games to get Lu ready, but you guys are just some bloody fruit bandwagoners

When I coached goaltenders, one of the things that I analyzed was the equipment the goalies used and how it affected their games. One think I've noticed is how hard the leg pads of Loungo are and what big rebounds they give. At NHL level, companies custom make your equipment for you. I believe the pads Lou use do not compliment his style and should be softer, so that he can;t kick the rebounds into the slot. Even though he may really like his gear,,,it might not be the best choice for him.
Hard leg pads are good if you can angle them so the puck is directed into the corners, but that seldom happens with LOu. Mike Smith is a master at it.
Clothes make the man and the right gear in nets does also.

It seemed like this same goalie equipment was working just fine for the past 2 months when he was the only reason the team was winning games. Now that he has a few bad games, the self-proclaimed goaltending experts come out of the woodwork to critque his game. So annoying.

Zack Kassian is the Chosen One. Bring back the Torres Turbo Diesel.
