Kane's first goal was a laser beam. Kane has beaten MANY of the league's best goaltenders with that shot of his. His second goal, well that puck got past two Canuck defenders, Salo and Mitchell, and Mitchell really screwed up on that one. Luongo has no excuse for Kane's third goal, but the team in front of Luongo was pretty much letting the Hawks run around.....regardless, he should've had it. Kane also is one of those speedy little guys who has loads of skill and also an incredible amount of puck luck.Uncle dans leg wrote:Ahem...
Wow. That goal, really? The Canucks are letting the Hawks do whatever they hell they please for that entire clip. The shot comes in from the point, through a screen, Lou gets his blocker on it, when he finally finds it, and the Canucks defense does jack shit. Lou played that shot properly, he's down and out because he knows a shot is coming in from the point, he can't see it clearly through traffic, so he drops to take away the ice, making the high percentage play, then makes a very good reaction save, though that puts him out of position for a rebound. That's what the team in front of him is for. They dropped the ball.Uncle dans leg wrote: Exhibit B
The Boston series was just a complete Jekyll and Hyde series for Luongo. He was absolutely unbelievable in games 1, 2, and 5. He was atrocious in games 3, 4, and 6, and less than stellar in game 7. But again you pick probably one of the most "excusable" goals from those games in Boston. Ference isn't a shooter, he winds up, he's sliding along the blueline to Luongo's left, Lou gets a good look at him winding up and his movement, drops as he tracks him across, and Ference blasts one that goes back the other way. It was a perfectly placed shot, and Ference probably couldn't replicate it if he tried.Uncle dans leg wrote: Exhibit C
Yeah, no doubt UDL, Lou is completely AWOL every time it really counts.Uncle dans leg wrote: Strangler, you can parade all the stats around you like but lets face it...the guy sucks when it counts the most.
As an aside, since you have proven he has the lowest save % in the history of the NHL, do you honestly, and I mean honest to yourself as well as everyone here, feel Luongo should be mentioned anywhere as being even remotely close to one of the games greatest goaltenders?
Oh yeah and easy now...my eye socket has only just healed
.....yeah, completely AWOL.
