If Lu gets Cup on OUR team, he is guaranteed a HoF

Recommended Posts

Was watching the SJ game and the little segment about goalies and HoF in the 2nd intermission got me thinking.

Would Lu really have a chance at getting into the hall of fame with the cup ring? Osgoode, for example, had a far more accomplished career league-wise compared to Luongo. But no HoF for Christopher.

Why, you ask. Well, Osgoode was a solid goaltender, who was never spetacular, but was consistent and solid. With a dominant team like Detroit playing in front of him, consistency got him much glory. But not fame. THIS is why Osgoode, and players like him, did not make it into the HoF. They weren't "famous". Luongo IS famous. He came here, saved a hockey crazy market, then got abruptly usurped by a new American kid. Drama ensues and who remains after the smoke blows away? Him. Then he goes and wins a Stanley cup after he retakes the helm. Add in 2 gold medals, a jennings possibly a Norris Conn Smythe or Vezina from the hypothetical Cup win, here we have ourselves a real hockey "hero".

Luongo has overcome HUGE amounts of adversity, political and personal as well as physical. EVERYONE seemed to hate him, and this was publicly known; ignorant Leaf fans even know about the Lu/Schneid situation. If Luongo can win the one thing he lacks on the trophy shelf, his fame will guarantee a spot in the Hall of Fame.

Think about it this way. If both Luongo and Osgoode were to be inducted into the Hall of Fame with a Cup win for Luongo added, who would you, as a neutral hockey fan, feel was the better inductee? I think it's safe to say Lu, even though Osgoode has won more cups and has a lot of wins. Lu is famous, he is well known, and if he wins a cup soon, he will be known for all the right reasons.

Thoughts?

Edit: Sorry, that was a mistake :lol: I'm keeping it on there though 'cuz it's hella funny

Lou > Osgood.

.919 save % vs .905

And watch them play Lou is/was the more dynamic player.

Chis Osgood is a good goalie with a great team.

Lou is a great goalie who played much of his career with ordinary or poor teams until 6 years ago.
