Quite true. Never shown a series stealing ability. Even Luongo while obviously having some playoff struggles has shown a consistent ability to steal games throughout his playoff career.
Yes, last summer I had a Ranger fan mock Luongo, to which I responded that he's done better, gone farther, in the playoffs than King Henrik. It was like I'd just blasphemed, the guy was apoplectic, could not believe anyone would dare critique the King, especially to Luongo.
Both of them great goalies; both having backstopped their national teams to Olympic gold.
I wouldn't be surprised to see both of them eventually winning the cup.
Luongo hopefully this season already.
