Whatever you think of Luongo vs Lundqvist, I think there's a case that Lundqvist has already equaled fellow Ranger Giacomin's NHL career, and then you add his gold medal at the Olympics...

I definitely think the goalie project is in danger of (wrongly IMO) following the old HOH tradition of hanging on the flaws of recent players while glossing over the flaws of older players. Where was the pointed criticism for singlehandedly blowing playoff series when Tony Esposito was being ranked 16th?

Edit: Don't get me wrong, I do think Luongo has shown a mental weakness in big games - that's why he's still available now. I just don't think it should wipe out the rest of his resume in a way that it wouldn't for an older player.
