Is your position that Luongo was better before the lockout than afterwards?

As for GMs voting for Martin Brodeur despite his low official save percentages; it's been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that NJ was massively undercounting shots, so looks like the GMs knew more than the stat guys there (at least until the stat guys finally got around to more closely scrutinizing save percentages and proved that arena effects were real).
