Fact is that goalies are supposed to stop shots, and Luongo has done that at a higher percentage than any other goalie. Not that nothing else should count, but saying that he shouldn't even be in the running because he is playing on a bad team behind a young defense is ridiculous.
He made some good points. Luongo leads in one goalie category. His gaa and wins/losses are subpar. If he can carry Florida into the playoffs then you can make a case for him but no way should a guy be considered just because he faces a lot of shots on a bad team.
