How often do you think Luongo played in Minnesota while he was with Florida and the Islanders?
The Canucks play in Minnesota 3 times a year (it was 4 times up until last season).. He's had the same coach his entire time here (same system), and very similar personnel.
Florida and the Islanders play in Minnesota once every 3 years.
All but 2 or 3 of Luongo's starts in Minnesota have been with the Canucks, and since Luongo joined the Canucks they've won the division 4 times in 5 years; they've had a good team most of the time he's been here.
I don't think he's necessarily 'bad' in Minnesota - the team has put up some real stinkers there, and I think the statistic about being bad in a particular arena doesn't have much weight; in such a small sample size every goaltender is guaranteed to be awful in one arena or another... but that said, it's not
