We are not talking 2006 Luongo here. We are talking about a Luongo who is past his prime, who is getting older, who is on a bad contract, and who is being moved precisely because he is unreliable at important times.
How has the gap between the 2 grown so small recently? Luongo has come off back 2 back Preisdents Trophies, SCF, Vezina Nom, William Jennings... Theodore has done what?

How is he in decline? How is he past his prime when this is the prime age for goalies? And I'm pretty sure he is being moved because with Scneider looking like he'll be a good starter Luongo has seen a chance to try & go back to Fla with his wife.... not because he is unreliable.

SOOOOOO much wrong in that post its hilarious.
