Luongo was in net when Canada defeated the US to win gold back in 2010. That winning Olympic experience matters, imo. Luongo isn't as great as he once was, but he's not terrible. 2.42 GAA and .912 save percentage aren't terrible, and those are Luongo's numbers right now. Crawford's numbers right now are 2.25 GAA and .919 save percentage - So he's a bit better than Luongo stats-wise right now, but Crawford also plays behind a better defense.
Crawford was genuinely phenomenal last year, but it's just one year (a shortened one at that). Prior to that he was an average No. 1 for a couple of years.
I wouldn't have a problem with Crawford making Team Canada, but I don't see where his case is all that much better than Luo's. Personally, I like having guys that won before on my team.
