Bryzgalov is nowhere near the goaltender Luongo is. I will concur that any mention of trading any of Couterier, Schenn, or any other young player of that ilk is absurd, but Bryzgalov was nothing short of horrendous all year last year. I don't think it's any coincidence that Bryzgalov was a Vezina calibre goalie under Dave Tippet, just as Mike Smith was/is and just as Turco was. As soon as those players leave Tippet's systems they falter.

Luongo has been a very consistent goaltender for the most part in the regular season - he has been off and on in the playoffs, with a few high profile meltdowns.
