If you took Luongo back in a time machine to Maclean's era, he would probably put up Patrick Roy numbers or better. The skaters of the modern era are bigger, faster, and better conditioned. Bigger money has turned athlete conditioning into a science. His D would have been worse, but he wouldn't have been challenged as much. Modern goaltending, using butterfly style is much better than the stand-up style that was prevalent in the late 80's early 90's.
