Consider it a domino effect. Inconsistent to awful performance from the forwards, leaves the goalie exposed to a greater variety of quality shots. Some sneaks by and confidence diminishes. Those forwards/defensemen overcompensate in an attempt to make up ground, often with worse results. Frustration settling in for a goalie struggling to do the same. This is magnified if he isn't having a particularly magnificent game himself.

As Stringer said, it is pointless to rank the impact inconsistency, injuries, and to what position they apply. Some hold them one to greater affect than another. The only argument being made is exclusivity of our downfall placed upon Luongo.
