Seriously? He's playing a lot better. But there is no excuse for how the player started the season. None.
So you think you have all information necessary to make judgement?
After a subpar start to the season in which he was struggled and had injuries, Luongo made 33 saves to earn his first shutout of the season, helping the Vancouver Canucks beat the Minnesota Wild 4-0 Monday night.
Last season, when he was part of the Jennings winning duo, he had 38 wins in 60 starts. So far this year he has 13 in 21. If you extrapolate that to sixty games you get 37.14, so he is basically on track to repeat the splendid regular season he had last year, when he won Jennings and was a Vezina candidate.
Yes, he played like crap in a number of games, while he "was struggled (sic!) and had injuries", but as of late he looks like the real deal again. I'd say apart from the Bruins, who have Thomas/Rask, this is the hottest tandem in the league.
And Luongo wasn't the reason we lost the final last season. Thomas was.
