Suddenly, he goes to Toronto, where their best D men are Phaneuf, Gardiner, Schenn, etc. Once Gunnarr/Schenn/Gardiner develop, Lu will be fine. He just has to survive until then.
here is the other side to that, and it is just a theory of mine:

In Vancouver, he didn't see too many pucks as Vancouver controls the puck and he sees 20-25 shots a game. The games where he looks all world is where he sees 35 shots or so. Kinda reminds of Pekka in that respect. Pekka only sees 25 shotsa, we seem to crap the bed and he is terrible. He sees a lot of pucks, gets in a groove. I am sure it is a goalie thing, as even our beer league goalie gets bored and lets softies by, but let him see 10 pucks a period and he is fine.
