I became a goalie the year after Theodore won the Hart/Vezina because I was so inspired by what he had done. I remember the standing ovation he got at the end of an 8-2 beat down against the Canes in the 2002 playoffs and it was just unreal. Luongo was the reason I started following the Panthers. At the time, he was being compared to Patrick Roy by the Canadian media and looked like the next generational goalie. It's a little ironic that I really don't want him anywhere near our team now. I guess it's because I dislike the Canucks so much.
