Luongo also played less games, but the misconception has it he lost his job rather than Schneider simply played that good. A good comparison was when Price "stole" Huet's job despite the latter playing notably better.

While I do not see the difference between Luongo and Price relatively high. I do say Luongo is better now.
Its debatable but i don't think the Luongo's .003 percentage points advantage in Save Percentage given the team he played behind suggests that he was better than Price last season. Its funny to see Nucks fans now state that their defense was god awful in order to support an argument that Luongo > Price. lol
