do you think Lu will be as solid as he is in VAN with the Leafs D in front of him
I do because, like Vancouver, Toronto's defense is more geared toward offense. They need a goaltender who can maintain the fort to compliment a reckless style of play. Undoubtedly, we have a better defense but I do believe Luongo will perform at a top ten level even behind Toronto's. Consider the past two years, goaltending is what cost Toronto a playoff spot. Lu would change that.

Gomez fell apart not because of age, team dynamic or any direct fault of the Habs. He simply crashed in a way we can only speculate on how it could have occurred.
