SO...if Torts and Lu both say he wasn't sharp and you disagree, who is the one struggling with reality? Lu wasn't the cause of the loss but he wasn't overly sharp either. Quick was better, it happens.
If you agree with what I'm saying, that the loss wasn't Luo's fault, how exactly am I struggling with reality?
Torts said Luo wasn't "sharp" but I couldn't find any quote referencing anything specific other than defensive breakdowns which were obviously not Luo's fault. So, I don't know exactly what he meant and having watched the replays again I still don't see it.
The first goal was a neutral zone breakdown that led to an odd man rush in which Luo may have been interfered with and was certainly snow showered by the LA player. And Tanev's attempt to block the shot likely screened it.
The second goal (which is the one Luo said he should have been more patient on) was a pass and quick tip in (from what appears to be literally inside the blue paint) after Danny skated towards Edler, snow showering Luo in the process, and both tried (and failed) to break up the pass but no one bothered to take the open guy in front of Luo.
The third goal was a pass from behind the net for a quick tip in from another unchecked guy in front of Luo. The shot comes mere inches outside the blue paint.
The fourth goal was similar. Pass from behind the net for a quick shot from a guy half way between the face off circle and the crease. Our players trying to get him ended up just screening Luo but little else.
So, yes, I do disagree if Torts thinks those goals were because Luo wasn't sharp enough when they were clearly the result of defensive breakdowns. Luckily, he also mentioned the defensive breakdowns so hopefully he will be addressing those with the team (who obviously can make amazing defensive plays, as we've seen in previous games.)
