Roberto Luongo to start vs. Blues

124 posts in this topic

Consecutive playoff losses of 7 GA in a game, combined with almost choking the entire 10-11 series against them says otherwise. But I suppose everyone here wants to cover their ears and stomp their feet when presented with actual fact.

No, not because he likes Luongo but because he never posts without drooling over Luongo and shooting down anyone who does not share his opinion. Check out his history. It is really tiring.

Heck, I like Lu too but I don't post as though I'd like to have his child.

almost choking the entire 10-11 series?! first of all if anything he played poorly in van against them after game 3. Just like people said last game Chi will light him up, he stoned them. And as far I remember he played well in Chi last year.

Back to my point:

2009 Playoffs, Conference Semi-finals vs. Chicago. Series Chicago 4-2. Luongo with 23 GA in 6 games. Chicago finished series at home winning 7-5.

2010 Playoffs. Conference Semi-finals vs. Chicago. Series 4-2 Chicago. Luongo with 23 GA in 6 games. Luongo loses games 4-2, 5-2, 7-4, 5-1.

2011 Playoffs. Conference quarter-finals vs. Chicago. Series 4-3 Vancouver. Luongo with 27 GA in 6 games. After a strong start going 3-0, Luongo loses games 7-2, 5-0, 4-3. 2 losses of which were in Chicago.

What does all this say? Luongo performs poorly against Chicago, and decidedly so in the playoffs.

I'm not saying anything controversial, just that Schneider should start in Chicago on Tuesday.

I expected Luongo would get the start. I think Cory will certainly get the start in Chicago on Tuesday, as Luongo is notoriously bad in Chicago. It will also be a great comeback game for Schneider.

The Blues have found some offense this season with the emergence of Tarasenko. Their blueline is also offensively gifted with Shattenkirk and Pietrangelo putting up the points. I'm looking forward to this game.

Well Schneider just single-handedly lost us that last game. 3 bad goals, we should of won 3-1. Lets hope Luongo can keep rolling. Don't care what anyone says, Luongo > Schneider and that stats don't lie.

I'm not a fan of this flip flopping back and forth. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. They should've kept Luongo playing which would mean he should have played last night.

Short sample:

Luo: .943 S% and 1.45 GAA with 0 losses.

Schneids: .912 and 2.62 with 3 losses.

For the $1.4M in difference I would not be trading Luo any time soon if I was genuinely concerned about the team and the mantra of: 'The best will be iced and play' schtick we are sold is in fact in play or just a catch phrase in the mgmt. sound bite box.

Not surprising at all...

We need to ride the hot hand right now, especially in the shortened season where Lu is #1 in GAA and #2 in SV%

I hope Luu starts angainst Chicago and gets a shutout, just to watch you eat crow. Why can't people just support both of our goalies, one who obviously is playing better than the other right now.

Now, now Canuck Nation...every goalie has their bad game and Cory admitted to his soft goals and would like to have them back. He'll bounce back on his next start. Meanwhile, Lu gets the start tomorrow as expexted and he'll play great.

GO CANUCKS GO!!!

Once again missing my point. I don't hold any resentment towards Luongo, nor will I eat crow if he does start. I was simply stating Schneider should get the start in the United Center as he plays better there. Nothing controversial, yet typical CDC, and posters like yourself run away with the idea that there is a dichotomy anytime someone says the other goalie might better be utilized in a certain situation.
