That's because you've always been more of a "career value" guy. I've always been more of an "extended prime" guy (which despite some recent comments is not the same as "peak"). My opinion is that Lundqvist has had a stretch of 8 years (including his MVP in the SEL in 2005 over locked out NHL stars) that is a step up from any comparable stretch that Luongo or Beezer had. And you know what? Part of that might just be the much-maligned "eye test."
Beezer's a lock for my top 3 regardless, and Luongo does look better to me after seeing his stats in Florida still impress even after being adjusted for possible funny business.
