Um in the history of recorded NHL stats.

17th in wins, should end up in the top 5 ever, in the history of everness.
15th in terms of shutouts, should end up in the top ten.
Probably end up in the top 5 for games played as a goalie.
Top 8 in saves currently, could finish somewhere in the top 5, maybe even 3rd.
Top 20 in Time on Ice.
Tied for second most wins in a season with 47.
6th place in career save percentage of goalies over 100 games.
20th in games played.

Someone else can do the Nuckers stats, but he leads all those.

I love what Luongo has done here, and he will have my eternal gratitude.

Most of our past goalies are under-appreciated. Luongo is the best goalie we have had. Schneider will have to win the Cup to better him. If the writing is on the wall then so be it. But some of us have great appreciation for Luongo and wish him the best of luck in the future.(Unless we meet in the Playoffs of course)

Remember when it was first announced the Canucks acquired Luongo? Everyone was losing it, everyone was ecstatic, everyone was like "this is huge for the Canucks!"

Now, we'll see the same reactions, except it's when he leaves town.

This is an appreciation thread. There are plenty of other threads in which to bash Luongo.

I hope the idiots don't high-jack this thread.

Thanks Luongo! You do have fans here still. We just aren't as loud and obnoxious as the haters.

I was out of town and my mom called me at was like "Bertuzzi got traded" and she was all sad. She didn't seem to realize who Luongo was, and I was busy losing my mind because we'd obtained one of the best goalies in the league.

Good times.

Best goalie this team has ever seen, brought this team back from the dead in 2007 and made us into contendors.

Wish him luck wherever he ends up and won't be surprised at all if he ends up winning a cup before Vancouver does cause that's usually what happens with our ex-players that go to other teams lol

Thanks for all the hard work in Vancouver Luongo! Class act all the way...

I don't know if it will be good for Luongo to be traded. Schneider is going to have to follow up on what Luongo did in Vancouver and that is going to be very difficult. The fans may turn on him quickly...

I feel bad for Schneider already, the expectations put on him already and the way he's been hyped up will give him even less leeway with the fans if he falters in any way.

Hahaha I wanted to do one of these but I wasnt in the mood for bashing from lu haters.

2011 playoff run... I get chills everytime I think of it. Favourite games

Game 1 vs hawks... came in and made all the haters eat it.
Game 3 vs hawks... went into mad house and shut them up
Game 7 obviously

Game 1 scf. Flat out stole the game ... flat out...

Game 5 scf.... god like. Never seen a goalie play better technically in a game of that magnitude until Thomas in game 7 lol.

Game 1 vs stars.... 70+ saves.

Oh and that shiny thing he won on Vancouver's ice in over time vs USA

Oh how about SIDNEY CROSBYS FIRST VISIT TO VANCOUVER....

CROSBY BREAK AWAY IN OT... TRIPPED UP AND A PENALTY SHOT CALLED...

Luongo absolutely stones the best player in the game... then the game goes into a shootout...

We lost the game but luongo destroyed Crosby one more time in the shootout. Proving he's equal to the task vs the best player in the game.

Unfortunately, everyone else only remembers the negative things that occurred over his playoff runs with Vancouver.

I'd add his 52 save double OT win vs the Sharks in game 5 of the WCF to that list as well

Luongo took us to the finals. He's up there with Kirk McLean in my books.

If anyone wants to take a peak at another appreciation 4 Luongo thread feel free to check this: http://forum.canucks...thank-u-luongo/

Posted that when we went down in the playoffs last year.

To me Luongo was one of the few who showed up.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

All of your posts use the word "yes" a lot and don't use punctuation ever. Is this a joke account, or is English just not your first language?

Luongo: not just by far the greatest goalie the Canucks have ever had but also one of the best players. Maybe it's time to move on but if Luongo is traded he will leave some big shoes for Schneider to fill. I have faith in Schneider but good luck to Luongo wherever he ends up.

If Luongo plays til hes 30, and get just 30 wins per season, he will be on pace to be 3rd time on at all time gaolies win list.

If he's plays until he's 30 he's retired.

Lu, thank you for acting with so much class during this process. You have helped this team/city's reputation by being so good about it all. While some media and general Canuck haters were sniffing for a 'goalie controversy', you and your pal Cory gave them nothing. So cool.You should be proud of all you've done here.

Good Luck.

In terms of his entire career, people forget about what he did in Florida. All-up, he will be remembered as a top-10 or even top-5 goalie in the history of the NHL which is remarkable. The same can't be said for some of the guys he's playing against right now like Miller, Thomas, Quick or maybe even Lundqvist. As great as all those goalies are, they probably won't be mentioned amongst the top-5 NHL greats. That really puts things into perspective - we've got a potential hall of famer on our team right now, that by itself warrants more respect than he's getting.

Cup or no cup, if Luongo does end up in the top-5 in most of those stats he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

If he's traded I'm sure he going to rejuvenate himself and take back his position as a top three net minder in the league. I wish him luck regardless.
