Luongo does not "suck" at shootouts

68 posts in this topic

This isn't to try and pretend he's great at them but he's not as terrible as many believe him to be.

He's 4th all time in shootout wins.

Best goalies at shootouts like Hedberg, Lundqvist, Howard, Niemi, Fleury...they all have sv%'s in the the .760's which is very good for shootouts. Luongo's career sv% in shootouts is .668. Not among the best but certainly better than the bottom half including Schneider.

Luongo has never been great at shootouts but he's not as bad as some here make him out to be. That assumption has mostly been made because of the amount of them the Canucks have lost since the shootout was implemented and if you look at the history of Canucks shootouts it's crazy how many have been where Luongo let in 1 of 3 and Canucks shooters got a big fat zero.

The first goal he let in tonight is all the evidence I need to dispute that!

But honestly, he isn't that good. I'd say he's around average. Quite often it is our teams inability to score in shootouts is more of an issue than goaltending is.

He's average.

The first goal.. Oshie just played it perfect. He slowed down like hes going to do a "Patty Kane" deke then quickly snaps it. Real fast snap. The second one he just didn't get over far enough.

I'm more concerned with our shooters chances... aka Kesler/Burrows

We should worry about our shooters, before the goalies.

he is either amazing and stops them all or he's terrible and does what he did tonight

so overall he's average at best when it comes to shootouts

We should not worry about shootouts, we have sucked since the have been implemented, yet back to back prez trophies, Clearly they don't mean much and I think clearly prez trophies don't mean much either anymore.

He's average but we can't win the shootout if our shooters don't score either.

6 games under .500 for the biggest contract ever given an NHL goalie is bad.

Did you see him getting ready for the shootout and he almost got run over by the zamboni? It was close but luckily it went right through his legs. Loungo is a great goalie but that first shootout goal - give me a break. Lou sucks on the shootout!
