I wonder if that groin injury he had has anything to do with his style and form now..
It's more of the change in goalie coaches. When Luongo first came here, Ian Clark was the full time goalie coach and he is noted as one of the best in the business. Then he started up his goalie school and could only commit part-time to the team up until 2010 when they went with Rolie Melanson. That's when Luongo really started moving away from his aggressive style. Some would say that the decline of his play began before that but you could relate that to the lack of an available goalie coach and/or the change in the team's strategy.

And you're right. Luongo's style back then was more like Tim Thomas'. Be aggressive, cut down the angles and play the percentages. If something got by him, it's either the fault of the dmen or it was a great play but it usually worked because of his size advantage. It also left more opportunities to make the "sexy" save that we all miss seeing compared to his passive style. His style now, when he's on his game, doesn't allow him to be in a position where he HAS to make a remarkable save, but it certainly doesn't get the recognition it deserves either.

You'd probably have to get a high res photo.. those don't look like they'd be good enough to blow up to make a poster.

I think it's also interesting to note that Raffi Torres may look white, but he's actually of Mexican and Peruvian descent. He apparently received a lot of flak for that when he was growing up playing hockey - his mom was told his son is better of selling tacos, etc.

so after Bryzgalov's last comedy act with the media... he isnt allowed to talk to the media...
from a flyers blog

Ilya Bryzgalov, the Flyers and the Philly media - Broad Street Hockey

the link has a few interesting tweets from their local sports personalities

Quote:
We learned today that the Flyers changed their media policy surrounding the most media-friendly player on the team, Mr. Ilya Bryzgalov. The goalie won't be speaking to the media on the day before games he starts or the day of games his starts, essentially meaning that the entertaining quotes will only be flying out of his mouth after games he starts.

As predictable as the sun coming up in the morning, the majority of the media had a cow over this, showing more outrage over the issue than they've shown over anything in a really, really long time. Probably since Mike Richards pissed them off last year.



(For the record, we understand and embrace the irony of the fact that we attend games with seats in the PRESS box and with MEDIA written on the badge around our necks, while also commenting on the media as them. But we also acknowledge the difference in our philosophy on covering this team, as well as the difference in our stance on this issue as opposed to the stance of the majority of the mainstream Flyers media.)

Some of the complaints, in chronological order. We'd list them all but that would take all day.

This is just a glimpse at how the media feels about this issue, but it captures the sentiment quite well. A lot of jokes and poking fun at the Flyers for keeping Bryzgalov away from them. A lot of self-righteousness over the travesty of a goaltender not talking to them.

And that's all part of the proper reaction. It's important for Bryzgalov to speak with the media, not because he's an entertaining quote and makes the job of those in the media so much easier, but because he's one of the new faces of this franchise. Our Savior, as some would say. He's an integral part of this team for the next nine years and with the money he's getting paid, he needs to talk to the media. And not just after games, too.

But let's not pretend that's the most important part of this story. This is where the media is being self-centered about this issue. At the end of the day, yeah, Bryzgalov not talking to the media is a story, and it's well worth complaining about. It's well worth the Philadelphia chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association filing a grievance against the team, too, as they have this afternoon.

But it's absolutely not the most important part of the story. The main function of the media isn't just to relay quotes to fans. My video camera can do that for me. It's telling the story of the team to those fans, and that's something they aren't doing here.

The story here isn't "HEY! WE CAN'T SPEAK TO BRYZGALOV!"

The real story -- the one that hasn't been mentioned yet by a single member of the mainstream media -- is "Hey, uh... why can't we speak to Bryzgalov?"

Ask the damn question. Why can't we speak to him? And if we already know the answer -- the general consensus seems to be that goalie coach Jeff Reese thinks the media is a distraction for Bryzgalov -- let's question that answer.

Why is it that a man getting paid $51 million to stop pucks is distracted by talking to a few people with recorders and note pads? If the problem is that there's a lot more media in Philadelphia than there was in Phoenix, let's point out the absurdity in that. Talking to eight people or ten people or 15 people is no more difficult than talking to two. Not when you're a professional athlete, and especially not one who's clearly the opposite of shy with the media.

The Flyers instituted this policy with Bryzgalov today. Why did they do that? It's absolutely insane to believe that he just can't handle the distraction of talking with the media. That assertion does not pass the smell test. So instead of finding out exactly why this happened, the media is sitting there buying into that B.S. excuse. That's more of an outrage than Bryzgalov not talking to them every day.

The media has the right -- hell, even the responsibility -- to be angry that the Flyers are yanking almost all the access to the $51 million man. At the same time, why is there no outrage over exactly why they're yanking that access?

So at the game Saturday, I was telling my GF they should change Lapierre's nickname from MadMax, Lapi, which I think is kinda weak, to The Cockroach - since he can be such a pest. And everytime he scores they should play:
