Yup.
Marginally better numbers than Luongo, while playing behind a significantly worse defense. Not that it affects his personal numbers that much, but he also got slightly less goal support than Luongo.

I realize that if you cherrypick numbers and focus on ES/PP/PK save percentage splits, while ignoring home road/splits, puck handling, and the higher scoring Eastern Conference, you can make Luongo look better.
