The thing with Luongo's 2010 olympics is that we have the benefit of an incredibly large sample of hockey fans who watched his performance, so we don't need to rely on looking at box score afterwards to judge his performance.

And he was not as good as his box score; did not inspire his teammates that he was unstoppable.

I wouldn't neccessary say that Canada won in spite of him (though he sure didn't help his case in the Gold medal game), but they didn't win because of him either. He was just there.
