That put the load squarely on our other three superstars and leaders and they failed to deliver in a pretty big way.
It's true that Luongo was terrific in three of the games but he was so spectacularly bad in at least three of the losses that it's hard to feel any better about his performance than the twins'.
Luckily we don't have to worry about seeing that again because there's very little chance we are in a Final for quite some time.
I'm over it I tell ya ... any day now.
Right, because 3 good starts is the same as 0 good games, right? Luongo won 3 games for us. The Sedins won 0 for us. Their offense was non-existent, yet people like to sweep that under the rug.
Luongo also lost three games for us. And don't give me the whole "we didn't score any goals" speech, I've heard it before. Lou let in everything directed at the fucking net in those games. We weren't going to win them with goaltending like that and the whole team knew it.
Anyway I sure as hell haven't been sweeping the Sedins' shortcomings under the rug so you might wanna change your tampon on that score.
I think the Sedins are fantastic human beings. Genuinely kind, generous, morally upright people.
I also think those same qualities render them less effective against the meaner, bigger teams in the league.
Hence the desperate need for more assholes, and the bigger the better.
