To be fair, if Luongo doesn't allow that absolutely putrid first goal, he never has to be in a position to make that huge save on Demitra in the dying seconds. I think the soft goals are what put people off when it comes to Luongo, also his number one position has been usurped by Cory Schneider, which doesn't help his image. Still, he's a better goalie than Ward and would have given us a better chance to win than Ward did. My ranking as of right now is:

1. Price
2. Luongo
3. Fleury (would have been #2 if not for that awful 1st round exit against the Flyers)
