All goalies have bad series. It's not something unique to Luongo.
Agreed. But Luongo does seem like an emotional goalie, and he does seem more prone to be thrown off his game. I think he's fully capable of winning a cup and a Conn Smythe, he almost pulled it off a couple of years ago. The thing is, coaching has lost faith in him, and we happen to have another goalie who is younger, cheaper, and seems to play better when it counts. Most other teams don't have this option, so I guess that's the difference.
I'd be perfectly content keeping Luongo in net if Schneider wasn't around, I believe fully he can get it done. But if I had to chose between the two, I take Schneider right now. Luongo seems to have simply run his course here.
