The Canucks played like crap in front of him against the Kings, I understand that. I understand that the Canucks scored 8 goals in 7 games in the Stanley Cup Finals. They blamed Luongo anyway. I also vividly remember team USA lighting up Brodeur in the prelims at the 2010 Olympics, and Luongo coming in and
playing like a beast in the Gold Medal Game
. Everyone forgets that one.
I like Luongo, and I sympathize with him being labeled a choker for, well, no reason. But at this point I'd take Schnieder. I don't think Luongo is an elite goalie anymore. A good one, but not what he used to be. I think Schnieder is on his way to that level, and I'd prefer him. I think when this Olympics rolls around and Luongo is aging and Schneider has gotten his feet wait, it'll be a little clearer. That's nothing against Luongo. I'd take Hamhuis over Edler too, that doesn't make Edler a poor defenseman.
He didn't. That was Miller.
