Haha underachieving? Internationally, Luongo has competed for Team Canada in numerous tournaments. As a junior, he won a silver medal at the 1999 World Junior Championships, while being named Best Goaltender in his second tournament appearance. Luongo has won two gold medals at the 2003 and 2004 World Championships and a silver in the 2005 World Championships. He also won the 2004 World Cup championship and appeared in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin as a backup to Martin Brodeur in both instances. He succeeded Brodeur as Canada's starting goaltender during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, winning a gold medal. On top of that, Luongo has won two consecutive President's Trophies as the starting goaltender for the past 2 seasons. It seems like you are only thinking he is underachieving because he has never won a stanley cup which is not the only possible award someone can be given

Copied most of this from Wikipedia, already knew most of it but didn't feel like typing it all up.
