    Thomas vs. Luongo

    Goals should be at a premium tonight in a battle between the eventual Vezina finalists.I like Boston's chances if TT plays like he did in Calgary.

    Should be good although I hava alway thought Luongo was somewhat overrated. I lost all respect for him a couple o years ago when he threatened retirement due to the NHL cracking down on the size of goalie equipment....

    1 game in 7-8 days has been a killer. Hopefully the B's are fired up for this one.

    Fair enough Dez. Just makes me angry, kind of like Giguere winning the Conn Smythe by dressing up as the "stay-puff marshmallow man."

    Goalie equipment is a total joke.  I remember seeing an interview with Ryan Miller after a game, still in gear.  His arms must have been three feet in circumference.  They have extenders that they claim protect their thighs (isn't that what the pads in the pants do?) but they really just shut the five hole for the butterfly goalies.

    The catching gloves could be used to catch Baffin Bay trout and the waffles could feed a small arm.

    Yeah,Luongo is scrawny with his gear off but on the ice he looks huge.

    It is one of my pet peeves. Although there is an argument to be made that if players can use composite sticks that can make the mosy average perosn shoot a puck at 100 miles per hour then it should be fair for goalies to be able to wear their armour. That being said, the adjustable shoulder pads that raise when a goalie goes down in the butterfly is beyond the pale in my opinion....

    I have noticed all 3 of of Buffalo's goalies (Miller, Lalime, Enroth) seem to have abnormally larger pads than every other goalie, at least using the eye test.    Especially the chest protector's.  I think there is some funny buisness going on Buffalo.

    Having the equipment to protect the goalie is one thing.  Having it to stop the puck is another.  Think back over the past...well...forever.  Can you recall any goaltender getting hurt by a shot the the chest?  Nope.

    They really are Sta-Puft and they're  second only to Skating Clowns on what I hate with today's NHL.

    Can't really say much about Luongo, Miller etc... when we have a goalie who is 160 soaking wet (Rask). He looks like a paper Mario character he is so skinny.

    Yeah, I agree. To make matters worse, I do not recall the NHL maintaining their "crackdown" on the size of goalie pads so it is likely they are the same jumbo size they were a few years ago...ugh!!

    True 40years but hockey is a team sport and perhaps their lack of success has less to do with their individual play and more to do with those around them?...

    Canada sure as hell didnt win gold because of Luongo

    Tim Thomas wasnt the starter and only played about 17 minutes the whole tournament



    Im not saying I agree with 40yrsnocup, but that was a weak argument red.

    Neither played, but anyways.  Thomas could be one of the most underrated goalies of all time while you could say the opposite for Luongo.  He's certainly good.  Just not the second coming.  Too much blame on both for not winning in the post season too.  Goalies in general!  Thomas didn't play in the playoffs until he was in his thirties as well.  He'll change this argument when we win the Cup this year anyways.  May have been a Lord Stanley preview last night.  We obviously match up much better with them than DET.

    I thought Luongo played a fair amount in the last Olympics.

    I think they both played in one.  Obviously weren't memorable.  I'll have to check.

    I stand corrected.  While Thomas came in for one period, Luongo shared time with Brodeur.  Actually getting the starts in the big games.  Bad memory I guess.  I watched every US game too.

    I'm sure it's hard to remember who played goal for Canada since it just seemed like a wall across the net......

    Worst olympic memory ever. Seeing Cindy score in overtime. I was crushed, especially after seeing Parise tie it up. I thought the U.S.was going to win. And that fruitcake did that to me.
