When he is on he is fantastic, best in the league IMO.

Unfortunately, in almost every single playoff series he has lost, he was not been good. Not at all.

Boston .891 3.41
Chicago 2 .897 3.52
Chicago 1 .879 3.51
Anaheim .930 2.31

The Boston series shows exactly what I'm talking about. He was amazing in 3 games.

he was a big part of the losses in the other 4.

You also have games like the 7-5 loss to Chicago. Team scores him 5 goals, comes back in the third. He simply can't get it done.

Luongo is just unreliable come playoff time. The Canucks have another option in Schneider. If they didn't then absolutely keep Luongo, he is capable of winning a conn smythe if he can ever get it together.
