He was good against the Blackhawks. But we need to score too if want to get that extra point.

Say what?

As of last year he was 7th...

That's exactly what I keep telling people. They say that Luongo is overpaid, yet he's the 9th highest paid goalie this year (IIRC) and I don't think anyone will dispute that he's consistently a top-5 goalie in the league. As that article points out, Chicago is still paying Huet almost $6 million a year...

I agree with the general sentiment that Luongo is not great at shootouts, but he's not getting a ton of help, either. The truth is I don't like our chances going into a shootout, whether it's Luo or Schneids, cause our team just can't score goals.

Shootouts are the NHL's version of Ritalin for today's fans. Luongo could leave a turd in the crease for all I care.

But yea, he sucks in shootouts.

Just hire a shootout specialist or learn from Datsyuk and Giroux. Gosh, I just hope Canucks players do more studying on Datsyukian, Girouic, and Crosbyian shootout dekes.

Luongo sucks in shootouts. The numbers speak for themselves. But I also agree that we need our shooters to be better in the shootouts, not nearly enough goals being scored.
