This article is from Renaud Lavoie (insider for french equivalent of TSN). I translated it in google and modified some of the worst translation from google.

Since it's not trade related, I started a new post. Hope it's ok.

"What do the best two goalies (so far this season) have in common? A goaltending coach name François Allaire.

Indeed, Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators and Roberto Luongo Vancouver Canucks have worked for two months with François Allaire. Four days per week, for 90 minutes per day, François Allaire made them work in the arena of South Florida.

Obviously the Canucks and Senators are very happy to see the performance of the goalies, while during the lockout, it was impossible for coaches to communicate with their players, let alone spend time on the ice them.

François Allaire is no longer with the Maple Leafs, has thus ensured that Anderson and Luongo would start the season strong. I talked to him on the phone Thursday and he confessed that he loved working with them. "Roberto and Craig did not know each other, but overall it was a very good team(all three of them). The chemistry was good and we had five shooters on the ice. Says, they worked very hard. '

So from November until 15 January, the three men spent a lot of time together. A week before the start of training camps, Jean-Sébastien Giguère of the Avalanche has also joined the group.

François Allaire did not know much Craig Anderson, but is not surprised by his results, he who is first among goalies (4 games and more) on the side of the average (0.99) and save percentage is 967% "He has phenomenal statistics and he wanted a good start because he had to compete internally, while the goalies of farm club Senators had much success. It has an excellent skating which is very important for the basic positioning. "

In the case of Roberto Luongo's goaltending coach in Vancouver, Roland Melanson, pointed out to me in training camp how he was in splendid form. According to François Allaire, Luongo (average of 1.61 and save percentage of .938%) was very motivated on the ice. "He wanted to be in top shape for the start of training camp. Normally, his debut season are slower, so he is ahead now because he's really close to his cruising speed. '

ALLAIRE WANTS MORE TEACHING

For his part, François Allaire admitted he still had the desire to teach, so he is ready to return to the NHL. Thursday evening, he will see his first game this season, that between the Jets and Panthers.

Remember, he decided not to return to the Maple Leafs, while his contract was to expire July 1, 2012. That said, he was very proud of what he has done with the Leafs. "We produced three NHL goalies in the last three seasons. The Maple Leafs had not built a single goalie since 1993. "One statistic that says it all."

"We produced three NHL goalies in the last three seasons. The Maple Leafs had not built a single goalie since 1993. "One statistic that says it all."

What I admire about Lou is that he is aware of his shortcomings and works very hard to improve them. Being square to the puck, reaching too much and not staying centered over his knees all contributed to his less than stellar stats last season. The 2010-11 season was excellent until he reverted to old habits and returned to more of a reflex goalie and often over playing the puck. Lou is one of those goalies that is more reactionary and not very patient in net. He always wants to make the save as apposed to just letting the puck hit him and directing rebounds to corners. I believe Melanson and Allaire were on the same page in recognizing the flaws in Lou's game and hopefully Lou will continue to improve his form. I still see difficlty in lateral movement and closing the five hole. He got lucky the other night when he got beat on the five hole but turned in time for the knob on his stick to sweep puck out of crease. It could easily have been a stinker. The Chicago game will tell a lot on how he is playing, he will need to be in top form as Chicago knows how to play him.

I don't think this is too relevant... Luongo has always been an elite goalie. He's just gifted and simply the best </man crush comment>

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

We already knew that Allaire had been working with Luongo in the summer - he does every year. It'd certainly been talked about in the other Luongo threads with all the reports of him working out in Florida during the lockout.

I would have hoped for some insight into why this offseason was different and allowed Luongo to start as well as he has. Perhaps it's just the way the cards have fallen.

Maybe Lu is pissed at everything that's gone on and wants his job back and is going for the cup. :bigblush:

It really shows that Anderson worked with him too. 5-0-1 with a 0.99 GAA. That's absurd!!

He could get hired to whichever team Luongo is traded to. Or if he's not traded, he could get hired here.

It's often good for a person to have a different coaching perspectives for a little while. Often, while under a single coach, what can happen is a person can get stale and need a fresh perspective. After that, they can resume with their old coach and continue.
But of course Luongo was elite. Are we only remembering that now?

For Lou job one is getting job one back...from the kid...I love it...keep them both and who's ever on fire play them until they cool off, and let the other one take over...the best duo since Batman and Robin.

A lot of Canucks fans seem to ignore or don't know this particular fact, to be honest.

The dude will be remembered as a top 10 goalie, ever, by the time he retires. Over the last decade he has been consistantly great. He might be the most consistent goalie from season to season other than Brodeur. Miller wins the Vezina... Then plays relatively terrible. [Insert Nashville goalie] plays great until moved. Luongo has been top 10 in save percentage for the last 7ish (or 6 of 7) years (cant remember exactly). A couple of cup wins, here or elsewhere, will erase any "choker" status he has.

It is so early in the season to be giving Lou his job back. CDC has more flip-flops than West Cali. I for one will wait till playoff time to make my judgements. Lest we forget. Those who do not remember history, are bound to repeat it.

Are you allowed to have 2 goalie coaches?

Rollie doesn't seem to be the right guy for Luongo.. Different styles.

Funny thing is... I would definitely peg Lu as batman in that analogy, which is messed up because I mean who really wants Robin to come to their rescue over Batman?

EDIT: Oh well, let's just pretend he's "Schneiderman" instead. :P

He could get hired to whichever team Luongo is traded to. Or if he's not traded, he could get hired here.


I suspect that is the plan. He could have a job in the league if he wanted to. I think he's waiting to see where his prize pupil lands.

I remembered that he trained with Allaire every summer but I doubt that it was that intensive. It certainly couldn't hurt to extend an offer to Allaire. Definitely proving Burkie wrong so far.

If the plan was to keep Luongo then maybe they look at a goaltending coach change. But Melanson I think has really helped Schneider and is a good goalie coach for him it seems.
