Roberto Luongo is a very good goaltender...

Luongo was letting in some softies at the beginning of the season and now that he's playing better and getting some offensive help the Canucks are rolling along now. Everyone bashing Luongo seems to be focusing on that November stretch when Luongo wasnt playing very well. Since then he has played like an allstar. Kipper had a pretty mediocre October but he seems to be getting a free pass on that month. Hasek has IMO been the best goalie in the West but Luongo is easily the #2 or #3.

Brodeur just lost in regulation again, so now Brodeur and Luongo have the same amount of losses, in the same amount of games.

Yes people, the column that says OT is still a loss.

Welcome to MY NHL... Gary Bettman's NHL, because I know what the aerage NHL fan wants... Lots of PP's and no flow, 2 points per game unless there is OT, then 3 points, and every market only gets to see the players in their confrence, I mean why would I want the West to see Malkin and Crosby?!?!

My NHL... Gary's NHL!!

Luongo bashing gets stupid. He carries us each and every night. He is a top 5 goalie in the league, and no stat will prove how much he does for us each night.

I think the thread starter said he has mediocre stats, but there's a world of difference between mediocre stats and mediocre performance.

The guy has 24 wins playing behind a pop gun offence. I'm not concerned about his GAA and his save percentage. Generally, when the Canucks have needed that big save in the last five minutes of a game, he's given it to them. And that's the most important thing of all with a goalie: how does he play when the game is on the line. I don't care if he gives up one goal or five goals. I care about whether Vancouver wins. And as of right now, I believe he's second in the league in wins, and the Canucks haven't won a game without him.

The Canucks are 6-0 in OT and 3-1 in the shootout. There's no way they have those two records without Luongo.
