Shortcomongs and tendencies are not one and the same. Lou is working more on a hybrid style, meaning , not dropping into the butterfly.
Every goalie has tendencies / shortcomings, same or different. Study any goaltender in any league and you will find flaws.
The penalty shot the other night was a prime example. The shooter expected Lou to drop but he didn't. The save he made looked easy because he fooled the shooter. Book on Lou is that he goes down. Comentators were surprised by the fact that he stayed up. The different look confused the shooter.
This sounds like a good thing, correct me if I'm wrong but it sounds like Luongo continues to evolve.
Had he gone down, shooter probably would have scored...over the leg and under the blocker.
Basing your opinion of someone on a probably is kind of childish IMO. Do you hate him because he makes more money than you too?
Teams shoot on Lou from every angle because he can be slow getting set and his 5 hole is still an issue. To say that all goalies can have a bad game is a given but the key is to make the scorers beat you..and not beat yourself.
Moot point, every goalie takes shots from every angle (kind of the point to hockey...score on the goalie) and all of them have been beaten 5 hole on more than one occasion.
Schneider got beat last night by a slapper from position "A"....he did not beat himself...he was there...it was just a great shot.
Don't get me wrong Ginger played good lastnight, he didn't see a ton of action but he deffinitly seen some quality action. I thought the goal was a little soft, with the traffic at the far post Schnieder should not have left any room on the short side.
