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.
IIRC, Brodeur had a SV% of 0.921, with Luongo at 0.920.
N.J played conservatively, conceded the fewest powerplays to the opposition, and led the league in measured shot quality against. On the other hand, Brodeur's home scorer screwed him to the tune of ~0.01 in SV% at home, and ~0.005 overall. And he probably helped his team's possession game to some degree, on account of his puckhandling. We'll call it a wash.
Team factors (either positive or negative) don't seem to have been as relevant to Luongo.
All things considered, it was pretty damn close.
