The 13th you're thinkin about is his save %.

And again, 13th out of 49 is well above average.
Considering that there can only be 30 goalies that can be called "starting goaltenders," placing 13th out of 30 goalies, is just a bit better than average playing on one of the best teams in the league.

Luongo isn't worth the assets it would cost to get him.

Way I see next year going:

A) Carlyle is magic and gets his system in place from Game 1 and the Leafs are in the hunt for the playoffs and likely end up anywhere from 6-9.

B) Leafs fail and fail hard and in that case...Welcome to Toronto ______ (highly touted prospect).

I don't see an in between because either both the defense and goaltending are good and it all works out or one of the aspects aren't good and they fail mid way through the season much like they did this past season.

Leafs were going at about .540+ while getting terrible goaltending. It would have been something if they had gotten in
