He gets pulled in the playoffs more than a 15 year old's junk on spring break.

From a statistical point of view, not really, no. His career 2.5x goals against is right in the middle of the pack when you look at goalie playoff numbers since his arrival here.

Schneider will fare a lot worse than Luongo has under the Vancouver media, just you wait and watch. People were calling him out for having a few bad games in Europe, just wait and see what happens when he stumbles in the NHL.

This guy has played his whole 56-game-career under absolutely no pressure compared to Luongo. The most pressure he's had has been to perform well in a few spot games here and there because he was a good AHL goalie - Luongo had to carry the entire country on his back during the Olympics and then playoffs. If you think anyone else can play as well as he did through those mentally tough tournaments I'd like to see them try.

Lately, Cup-winning goalies are those with very little scrutiny and pressure on them. Thomas wasn't really expected to play well after being replaced by Rask for a year, so he turns out one of the all-time best goalie performances the following season because of such low expectations and pressure on him. Quick and the Kings were underacheivers all season, and as an 8th seed had virtually no pressure to perform well in the playoffs.

Now we have Schneider who, if he does actually replace Luongo, will not only have the pressure of playing in Vancouver but the added pressure of having to replace arguably one of the all-time top-10 goaltenders and essentially play better than he did which is going to be almost impossible. Luongo is the Canucks best goalie ever and the only way Schneider is truly accepted is if he becomes the new franchise tender, a very tough ask.

Stick with Luongo, because there is no way Schneider will be able to perform well under that intense pressure.

No you're not.

They couldn't solve Thomas. With our depleted defense, it was expected they would score some goals on us.

Luongo got no support. People say Luongo killed the momentum and team morale by letting more and more goals in, but the team in front of him didn't score a goal to give him the hope or the boost for him to have that extra step to make the next save.

Well i guess to be fair, Chara/Seidenberg is a very solid shutdown pair. But hey, it's their job to figure out a way to score, and they didn't.

No but he is a middle of the pack goalie at best and he won a cup even though his numbers in the playoffs in 2010 were worse than Lu's were in 2011. Cause he actually got offensive support

Ok I see how it is, Lou our mid pack goalie could win the cup if we had ofencive support to compensate for the fact that he's a mid pack goalie.

The only thing that is still confusing me is why we are paying our mid pack goalie like he's a star goalie, the payroll really takes away from the ofencive talent we can sign (with the cap and all).
