    Worst goalie choke artists

    TT has put on one of the worst goalie playoff performances I have seen for a while.  So I was wondering who you think is the worst playoff choker out of the following:

    Turn on versus right now.  Jonathan Quick just gave up 5 2nd period goals on 18 shots to blow a 4-0 lead.  Did you see Luongo give up 6 goals in 42 minutes earlier today?  This thread is stupid.

    Luongo, hands down.  Lalime is a close second.  Thomas....not even CLOSE.  A 7 game loss to the Habs, a sweep of the Habs, a 7 game loss to the Canes and now 1-2 vs the Habs.  His 3rd time as a playoff starter and has a winning record at 11-10.  Not impressive, sure, but nothing CLOSE to a choke artist.

    Yah Nabokov was terrible when they needed him the most. John Casey got the North Stars to the 91' final but started flopping once he saw Mario and Jagr. John was again great to bring the Gretzky Blues but folded against the Wings when his defense played really well that whole series.

    Marty and Patrick.

    Not sure Loungo can be blamed for all of Vans past failures.  But based on playoffs(he has a olympic gold medal) I would put him in that list. 

    I would also put any Capitals goalie from the beginning of time.

    Nabokov!  Funny how I forgot about him....because he did NOTHING except cause some great teams to lose.  He REALLY brought the Sharks down in the playoffs for years!

    actually and I hate to do this but since your a TT hater if you want to get into goalie choke artists look no further than Tuuka. He blew a 3 game lead then a 3-0 lead in game 7....If that aint choking....

    and he was expensive...

    Remember Cloutier from Van a few years back too? Good regular season stats, third string play in the playoffs...

    AT SOME POINT!?!?!?!?!  What do you call last night!?!?!?!?!  Seriously, thats why I put Luongo.  People have been riding high on him for years, even before going to Vancouver.  His game will self-destruct in 5....4....3....2......

    As far as Nabokov goes, it's convenient to blame him and the organization certainly made him the scapegoat, but I watch every playoff game possible and I seem to remeber alot of high end talent up front not performing come playoff time. Easier to blame the goalie.

    While I think they will end up beating Chi (hope they don't) I don't see Luongo gettings past the second rd. They will end up playing great offensive and physical teams in the next round that will play him much like Chi did last year. Van fades when things get chippy. Which is funny because they are chippy themselves.

    I think Van makes the semi's for sure.  Det/San is almost a lock.  And then its the Ducks or Nashville(likely Nashville as much as it hurts me to say).  I don't think Nashville has the scoring to match Van.

    I hope the Ducks make it too. Shupe; did you happen to see game 3 between the Preds & Ducks? McQuire as you know stands between the two benches during the TSN games right? Well, apparently the Preds were giving Selanne the gears & saying he should retire & he's too old to play this young mans game. The score at the time was 2-0 Preds. Well the next shift Selanne goes out & scores 2 goals 30 sec apart to tie it!
    The Preds still won, but it was funny. One of the few times I actually thought having Mcquire between the benches was a great idea. He's the one that brought up the Preds saying that & he actually said the Preds better watch what they say to Teemu! Always liked the Finnish Flash! Met him when he was with the Av's & he's as funny as they come! Class act too!

    [QUOTE]Cloutier was a journeyman, though. Sort of like a Brian Boucher type from Philly. Luongo was a huge trade chip from Florida and is paid a boatload on a loaded team. I fully expect him to collapse at some point.
    Posted by RidingWithTheKing[/QUOTE]

    Cloutier only played for 4 teams his entire career. His 4 seasons as the Nucks starter were very productive in the regular season (check the stats) and the team did very good those years except for the playoffs of course....I agree with what you are saying though. Luongo is paid as an elite tender and has won diddly squat when it counts (excusing an olympic gold of course)...

    I missed that.  I was actually flipping back and forth.  30 seconds later and the flash sniped two.  he is good and can play easily another year.
