Also, it's luongo321, not luongo123.
I did not see anyone say he played bad the only comment i seen was this, unless I missed one "feel bad for Schneider but I don't think he was really at fault for most of them". Looking at the highlights it definately was not a good game for him though he was getting left high and dry on some of them against sharp shooters. I think luc said he put on a clinic a few days ago but still looked rusty as expected. I think thats a fair assessment of what I have seen from him playing oversee's as well this month. He had played very well for ambri piotta (one of the best SV% but only over 7 games) but did look a bit rusty to me as well, and I also dont know how familiar he is with international ice, its quite different for goalies.
I think people were face palming because you suggested it was worrisome if he could not raise his game..... for the spengler cup.
Kypreos was mentioning the other week how the tournament is a good time, some bring their families and some party. He back tracked to make it sound like he was not suggesting it was not important after someone asked him what hes trying to say, but basically hinted its not a big deal to players, as everyone knows. So I am not sure why you would be worried about him trying to raise his game in the spengler.
And from the highlights it did look like his worse game so far during the lockout.
