Feel free to correct me but Luongo's save % over the last 4 years is not 92.6% it's actually 91.9%. (1-(544/6787)) = 0.91984

Unless I am missing something here (which I might be) the goal differential calculations you made could be off by 15 goals or so which would knock us down a peg.

That said, with Luongo I feel we'll be going to back the playoffs and he'll steal us a few games the way Belfour and CUJO used to.
(EDIT)You're right.

[QUOTE=TheMadHatTrick;51448283]Roberto Luongo's save percentage with an equally enept Florida team over his last 5 years there was 92.6%, or, exactly the same number as it has been with a very good Canucks team over the last 4 years.

The team in front of you should only really affect the amount and quality of shots a goalie faces, and therefore theoretically should not affect a goalie's efficiency relative to their actual ability, and the numbers bear that out.

Luongo gave up way more goals with Florida

213
172
164
140
107

Than he did with Vancouver

127
126
167
124

But his save percentage remains remarkably the same, because those numbers are the closest statistically you can come to judging a goalie's actual ability over a large sample size.




I didn't downplay anything. I prefaced the entire post with the neccesary caveats. It is also a purely statistical analysis, meaning that it can only measure things that can be statistically quantified.

Notice that all of those goalies you have chosen are predominantly backup goalies and have not produced close to a large enough sample size against top competition over an extended period of time from which a reasonable conclusion can be drawn.[/QUOTE]

Getting Luongo is in no way a lock to make the playoffs. He surely increases our chances but there is no "lock" with this team.
Your logic is a bit flawed. The Canucks are a consistant Presidents trophy threat and cup contender. No one has said we will become that with Luongo, just a playoff team
Not every playoff team has A and B or either for that matter. Take a look at Florida's roster some time, or Pheonix. Yes there are no garuntees but I like our chances assuming no major injury problems.

Did Shultz sleep with Luongo's wife or something we don't know about that stops both from being on the same team ?

Thats fair. But Brodeur looked terrible and they werent going to hand the reins to Fleury. They had no other choice. Luongo looked awful in the gold medal game. Luongo biggest weakness to me is focus. HE constantly gives up weak , team deflating goals.

To the OP: How can you have an aggregate save percentage of 90.9% when none of the individuals has a higher save percentage than 90.3%?

I see the mistake now. I'll fix it.

Does anyone know if the Leafs management actually ever confirmed interest in Luongo?
