Once again the whole hockey nation is over reacting. If you did not know the whole story you would think Luo had the best performance by a goalie ever witness. In truth Luo has been solid and Cory ,as a result of horrible team play, looked terrible in his first game and solid in his other starts.
So to sum it up; Cory has had one bad game and Luo has not. The team has had one good game and the other 6 have been interesting. even with the shutout against the Ducks the team looked terrible. Looking at the stats Cory's numbers are really bad and Luo's are outstanding, but take away the embarrassing team play of game one(including Cory) and breakdown the game to game play of both goalies you have similar stats.
Compare the stats without the first game where both goalies' stats took a beating.
VS CGY GA 2 SV% .944 got the win
VS ANA GA 0 SV% 1.00 I feel Cory had to work harder than Luo in this shutout
VS SJS GA 4 SV% .852 lost against a very hot team scoring against all.
So overall Cory has got the team 4 points and looked good.
VS EDM GA 2 SV% .938 lost in overtime but gained 1 point
VS LAK GA 2 SV% .929 ( note: people over hype this start because it was the stanley cup champions but they have started the season as one of the worst teams in the NHL) again lost in overtime and gained a point.
VS COL GA 0 SV% 1.00 Good shutout, but nothing oustanding against a team without a top line. I also feel the team for the first time showed a solid performance through the whole game. Now this could be because Col was without their first line.
So overall Luo has got the team 4 points and looked good.
It really does not matter who starts on friday it does not change the direction the team is going in goal in the future.
