Luongo is leaving because is overpriced. So much for so little, with salary cap going down, you want to keep Schneider.
Fans like you are the reason why I hate coming on this board. It's not Luongo's fault that we lost tonight. Sure, he may have wished he had one or two goals back these past two games but honestly could you blame him? If our team can't even score more than 3 goals a night, then not even Schneider can save this team. Let's review the goals now shall we?
Couture goal: Beautiful shot. On the powerplay. Through several bodies. Nothing Luongo could've done except go into butterfly and hopefully hit him.
Boyle goal: Luongo was taken out of the play. Nothing on his part. Just a mental defensive breakdown.
Marleau goal: Hamhuis was caught watching the puck and when he tried to block the shot, it went off his foot and into the net. Had it not gone off Hamhuis, Luongo woulda had that but because it changed direction and the puck's speed and momentum slowed down, it went off Hamhuis' shin guard and into the corner of the net. Nothing Luongo could've done.
If anything, all 3 of these goals weren't Luongo's fault. Our team couldn't score. Our defense was having mental breakdowns and having sloppy outbreaks. Too much hesitation with our forwards like Henrik and Raymond hanging onto the puck instead of shooting it right away.
Thornton goal: Jam play. 1 on 2 in front of our net. Edler can only handle so many sticks in front of him and unfortunately, Luongo wasn't there quick enough to stop the puck. Again, another defensive breakdown and our team being slow as usual didn't take their man and wasn't fast to the puck.
Marleau goal: Luongo couldn't squeeze the puck enough and Marleau was the quicker skater to the puck to tap it in.
Torres goal: Blocked shot from Burns at one end leads to a 2 on 1 and Burns makes a slick pass to Torres for an easy tap in. All Luongo could do there was to get across as soon as possible and hope that Torres slid it on the ice instead of roofing it but it went top shelf.
SO really, if you break it down, Luongo can only be "blamed", and I quote, BLAMED, for only one, maybe two goals. The rest were just our players not doing their jobs and not scoring enough to bail him out.
