When you guys look back at all this, you'll feel just as stupid as those who tried to defend the last #1 goaltender that played here.
Not near the the same. Cloutier was at best an average journeyman goalie whose career was bad when he played for a bad team. Luongo played exceptionally well for a really bad team in the Panthers and likely should have won a Vezina and a Pearson in 2003-04 (nominated) while there as he played phenomenally in huge minutes while being vulcanized in the process.
How many Vezina. Pearson and Hart nominations did Cloutier accumulate? All-Star selections, Team Canada selections and gold medals? Play-off series wins?
Comparing Luongo and Cloutier is like comparing apples and orangutans.
