In reality,Luo suffered his first serious groin injury in November of 2008.
However,despite that serious groin injury and then reinjuring it just weeks later,Gillis.org decided to grant Luo 64 million cashews and give him the no-trade,12 year deal.Weeks after signing the deal l(Sept.2010) Luo suffered yet another groin injury and then had one more in Nov. 2011.
For me,these serious groin injuries are what have altered Luo's level of elite play and yet he was still carrying the bulk of the games for the Canucks into this last season.
How did Luo and the team do despite his successive groin injuries that began in 2008? :
2011-2012-First in Division,Conference and League
2010-2011-First in Division,Conference and League
2009-2010-First in Division,third in Conference and fifth in League
2008-2009-First in Division,fifth in Conference and seventh in League
I dont think anybody would argue with Luongo's regular season body of work. He has done very well in that regard even despite his groin injuries.
