With Luongo, i thought it was not about the regular season

202 posts in this topic

inability to score 5 on 5, pour coverage in our own end of the rink and inability to rise to the occasion, bounced us out of the play-offs more than Lu's bad play. Which i might add was cause by bad coverage....we didn't limit quality chances.

He does play amazing playoff games. But his high save % gets bolstered by brilliant games mixed with horrible outings.

Isn't the point of having a great goalie to be someone to bail you out when the team can't score? Look at his save percentage in Boston and Chicago, or count how many last minute goals he has let in. He is a premier goalie,but has a history of not making the big save in big games. Can that be denied?

Yep, I agree. Goalie can't bail you out all the time. But after losing 8-1, 4-0, 5-2 and 4-0 in finals, it is legitimate to question the goalies ability to perform in playoffs. Especially when this has occurred in the past in other situations.

The team has a history of not scoring in multiple key games collectively. Tough to go into a series not sure whether your offense will play like the best team in the NHL or score 8 goals in 7 games.

errr, dude, after losing 8-1, 4-0, 5-2 and 4-0 in the final, and the team still managed to get to game 7??

and there, you are questioning the goalie's ability to perform in playoff, and those scores has nothing to do with how fack up our injuries were or how bad the reffing was?

have you ever wonder how the hell could the team get to game 7 with those kind of score? And somehow, somewhere on earth, there is a person, or multiple guy, think getting to game 7 with this kind of score has nothing to do with the ability of our goalie keeping the team in game for the last minute with his last breath.

Schneider might of had a couple of bad games but he is still playing 500 hockey (2-2) and had 1 shutout.
