Repeating this over and over assuming everyone has forgotten the details doesn't make it true. Luongo was pulled in the SCF before game 7 by a coach who has been his biggest backer. The games the Canucks won were defensive battles where Luongo was great. Then there was the opposite, where he let then down. Canucks didn't lose the SCF because of Luongo but with consistent, great goaltender (like Quick or Thomas that year), they didn't need 7 games to win that series.
