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.
Bryz had a top 10 SV% in 2007-2008 under Gretzky.

Granted, he had a crappy 2008-2009, but has had a good season without Tippet.
