This is truly a shame! The BEST goalie we have had and the media, fans and management have basically hung Lou out to dry. Lets look at his accomplishments in a Canucks uniform.
2nd all time in games played - 386 games - (Surprised he made it this far, with the critism he receives)
1st all time in wins - 224 -
1st all time in win percentage - 0.58% - ght
1st all time in shutouts - 33 -
2nd all time in GAA - 2.35 in 386 games played - (Second to only Schneider with over 300 less games played)
2nd all time in Save percentage - 9.20 in 386 games played - (Second to only Schneider with over 300 less games played)
2nd all time in games played in the playoffs - 59 - (Second only to McLean @ 68)
2nd all time in playoff wins - 32 - (Only 2 behind McLean with Kirk having 9 more starts)
2nd all time in playoff GAA - 2.50 - (Behind Alex Auld @ 2.48 which only played 4 games)
2nd all time in playoff shutouts with 5 (Behind McLean @ 6 but still playing 9 less games)
1st all time in playoff save percentage - 9.17%
It's no secret I am a huge Luongo fan but for the past few years it has been difficult to continue to say the same thing over and over again. Luongo is the best goalie the Canucks have ever had and it is such a shame that we may be losing him. I remeber last year someone said on these boards that ANY other fan base/media would be treating him in a different way. That he would not be the scapegoat for the teams failures in any other NHL market. I guess now we may get the chance to see. I like Schneider, he will be great, he seems to be a team player and perhaps he should be the started but to just throw away someone that has done SO much for the orginization and played so well seems so ridiculous to me. Good luck with your new team if you do go and sorry we basically ran you out of town.
FTR: Schneids is 1-2 in the playoffs - Does that mean he should be traded? The only reason he even has that 1 win is because we scored two pp goals, something we couldn't give Luongo in games 1 or 2...
