Luongo and Vancouver's Goalie Graveyard

For Roberto Luongo and the Vancouver Canucks, things have settled down a couple of weeks removed from October, but Luongo and the Canucks' fans cannot get much respect these days.  While Lou gets slammed for a few mediocre performances, Canucks fans are labeled as fickle band wagoners with no respect for their team. So, is Vancouver really a goaltender graveyard?

In short, no. A brief history of the past 15 years will explain why Luongo is under such immense pressure, and this goes beyond "playing hockey in a Canadian city".
