He's played outstanding hockey so far this year, considering the goalie situation you guys are lucky to have.
I think there is a miconception about Luongo though. He's always been an incredibly strong regular season goalie (excluding his slow starts that correlate with the teams' slow starts). Druing the playoffs we were leaning towards Schneider for two reasons.
1) the most important one- The team was struggling and AV needed a change (lines were shuffled as well) and the team was playing better in front of Cory. We did also get back Daniel which was a hits moral boost as well.
2) Luongo doesn't have the most impressive playoff record
