Does Vancouver Need A Different Luongo?

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, .

..But Roloson and Osgood are living proof that you can re-invent yourself.  The good news for Canucks fans is that Luongo has a better base to start with and that he will not be affected much by the new goaltender equipment rules for next season.

In my 30 Thoughts from two weeks ago, I posted critiques from other players about his inability to handle traffic and habit of lunging instead of pushing off. Obviously, those are problems he’s going to have to solve. Another I’ve heard is that his long, gangly body creates big rebounds.

Both Luongo and the organization must do an exhaustive examination into his technique, which is already occurring, I think.
