One More Shutout For Roberto Luongo...

Recommended Posts

...and he will have 60 in his career.

He will be just the 16th goalie in the history of the NHL to have reached 60 shutouts.

He'll join a list that includes names like Brodeur, Sawchuk, Hasek, Belfour, Roy, Esposito, and Jacques Plante.

Luongo has played 724 games so far...Patrick Roy played 1029 and had 66 career shutouts.Luongo just needs 7 more to catch him on the all time list.

If Luongo can keep averaging 4 shutouts a year for the next 3 seasons...he will be right behind Tony Esposito who had 76 career shutouts and be top ten all time.

Luongo is already tied for 2nd all time with Bernie Parent for wins in a season (Brodeur had 1 more).

As well, with tonight's win, Luongo surpasses Hall of Famer Gump Worsley for all time wins in the NHL and is 17th in history. He'll need another 20 wins to pass Rogie Vachon.

2 more 30 win seasons and Luongo will surpass Dominic Hasek and a slew of others, and move in to the top ten behind Chris Osgood and his idol Grant Fuhr. There's a strong statistical chance that Luongo becomes just the 11th goaltender in NHL history to have 400 wins.

Wonder how far ahead he'd be in the record books if he hadn't had to play those early years with a crappy Florida team

He has more pressure on him than most other players in the NHL. Great to see that he's found a way to cope with it and thrive in that kind of environment.

Can't wait until he adds a Stanley Cup to his resume! Vancouver is lucky to have a prestigious goalie like him.

THANK YOU NONIS.

Oh yeah...

and Luongo is a shoe-in for the International Ice HockeyFederation Hall of Fame when he retires.

5-0 in the 2010 Olympics with a 1.76 GAA and a gold medal.

10-3 record in World Hockey Championships with 2 gold medals and a silver

A gold medal in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey

A silver at the 1999 World Juniors with a 1.93 GAA over 7 games.

17-2-3 Record with 4 shutouts in 23 games with the Senior men's team throughout his career.

One of the best international goalies in hockey history.

I would still trade him and keep Schneider, if only it were possible. Still, there is no denying that those are pretty impressive statistics. I will forgive any bad stats if he wins a Cup.

People also always bash him and say he's very bad mentally. Oh really?

He's been public enemy #1 in Vancouver and arguably the NHL for the past 3 years and he stilla puts up Hall of Famer numbers. He replaced Martin Brodeur.... MARTIN BRODEUR in the 2010 Olympics and stood on his head when the ENTIRE WORLD was breathing down his neck and he walked away with a Gold Medal.

Looking at the big picture, he's probably the mentally toughest goalie in the league.

Atta boy Lu! Loved his play tonight and was on top of his game. He deserves to be up there with the best and will no doubt in the coming years will pass great names. Thanks for bringing up the stats OP, a great read and finally a rare positive post on Luongo.

PS To those who say you want him gone are complete morons... Do you realize how many times he has bailed us out when the players in front of him played terrible? More then Schnieder has thats for sure and even after all these long years of having crappy goalies Luongo is still not good enough? Give your head a shake. I am proud to have a goalie with his credentials on our team to capture Lord Stanley and you all should be to. End of rant.
