Yeah, I have no idea how anyone would have complaints about Thomas's playoff record.

Very short time as a relevant goalie? Fair
Possible product of his team? I can see it to an extent.
Questioning his playoffs? I don't get it.

Lead by 2: 56/60, .933
Lead by 1: 154/164, .939
Game tied: 257/276, .931
Down by 1: 84/92, .913
Down by 2: 24/32, .750
Down by 3: 41/45, .911
Down by 4+: 16/21, .762

With the score tied, he's usually great. One goal goes in, and you start to worry. Two goals go in, and then sometimes so does everything else. It's certainly a strike against him, but if you're a great team (like, say, Team Canada) then you're usually just fine with Luongo in net.
Thanks for doing this. Looks like "protecting a deficit" was Luongo's biggest weakness, at least in 2011. "Protecting a deficit" is a Doc Emrickism often used to praise Brodeur's ability to close the door on the other team when his team is down by 1 or 2 goals, even if those earlier goals were Brodeur's fault.
