and to all the people saying trade luuuu .....ok fine lets say it happens

schnieder and lack combo means the canucks will still lack a cup at the end of the year

:and also Gillis/Av lose their jobs because a collapse will happen (Fleury and ward both had losing seasons as the teams #1 goalie before winning the cup )

At least Schneider and Lack are less likely to pull a choke job against Chicago, and Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

kirk mclean was loved by canucks fan and always will be because he is not a head case like luongo.

Heres why we loved kirk:

kirk never gave up on the puck and let people just score 3 or 4 consecutive goals in a period.

kirk never asked for a salary contract that front loaded him with 10 million dollars per year (overpayment).

kirk never expected other goalies to "pump his tires".

kirk didn't have problems with breakaways.

Cory schneider is a lot like Kirk and will be even better in today's NHL.

I really wouldn't include Noronen, Essensa, Whitmore or Hedberg in that list. Maybe Auld either. They were back-ups and really didn't get the same kind of attention or pressure that the number one goalie did.

Cloutier also had a great run as a Canuck. Sure it ended fairly badly, but he set several team records along the way.

I would say the goalie gaveyard era began after McLean left and ended with Cloutier's arrival.

Luongo is a good goal and was an elite goaltender. With someone with his work ethic and going to the rink and practicing every day he shouldn't be allowing soft goals behind the net every other game, I do realize soft goals will happen. But ever since the groin injury 3 years ago? He hasn't had the same movement or fight that he once had. Luongo will put up 30 plus wins every year no doubt but you never know what Luongo will show up. Look at the cup finals what games are people going to remember most the games where he shut out Boston or the game where he let in 5 plus questionable goals?
