Disagre with his reasoning here. The longer the season, the bigger the advantage good goaltending gets you. Over a smaller sample size, the gap narrows. Throw in the fact Luongo often gets off to a slow start and the gap between Luongo and an average goaltender narrows even further.

Gardiner +++ just isn't grounded in reality IMO. Assuming the pluses aren't Lombardi, Komisarek and Connolly.
