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.
exactly; if anything, the title of this thread should be "With scoring
I thought it was not about the regular season"; to be the top scoring team in the regular season is one thing, but it's the skaters in front of him who stop getting it done, NOT Lu.
Look at this if you like stats.
Lou's last six games in the playoffs by year.
2007-08 - Last 6 games: 4.59 GAA, 0.837 Sv%
2008-09 - Last 6 games: 3.31 GAA, 0.879 Sv%
2009-10 - Last 6 games: 3.52 GAA, 0.897 Sv%
2010-11 - Last 6 games: 4.12 GAA, 0.864 Sv%
Debunked? Myth? No and no.
Last 6 games... would that not show that with another round
of play the competition gets tougher?
So it's his fault if the team they meet in later rounds, having gone on a hot offensive streak in the playoffs, steamrolls their way through? That's not entirely representative of HIS failure, just that in later rounds the level of competition tends to go up (and goalie stats may go down, or the defense in front of him crumbles/ gets over-matched by superior competition). Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that he's done well either, but he's not the only one to blame. Again, BOTH teams want to score, and the opponent has done their damage. Where is the damage done by Canuck skaters on the other goal?
