On a sidenote, I do agree with the rest of your post and we should be looking to get a top 6 forward in the summer in a sign and trade.


lf Cory is not that good, what made you think we will get a top 6 forward in return for him?

You misunderstood. Cory IS that good.

You have to be a true bandwagoneer if you buy Mike's line about looking for the right deal to trade Luongo.

True fans and hockey diehards know, that is double talk for, "Luongo is a high ticket commodity now or next year, we'll keep him around just in case Schneider turns out to be a lemon and chokes games."

And choke he will.

I know this. I'm never wrong.

I think Lou will be the one traded maybe not this summer maybe next,we can keep Scheids another year for sure (he's a restricted free agent) and this summer or next move Lou to a Florida team (which is where he really want to be anyway) bring Lack up as a back-up and just keep rolling!


If Roberto absolutely chokes in the Playoffs, I still see this as a remote chance.

Schneider will be traded. Probably along with Raymond and/or Ballard. It will be painful like Hodgson, but it'll be done.

He has to get his shot at being a starting goalie and he won't get it here in Vancouver. And it's creating competitive but negative effects on the team especially going into the playoffs.

Luongo is our No.1 and deservedly so. He has brought us here again to the top. He has been the most consistent player for the team all year. Is he capable of choking a game or two? Yes. Like most goalies who never made it into the Playoffs or got eliminated on the way. Are we at the top because of bad goaltending?

Give Cory his shot and get rid of him this Summer. Many teams will grab him in a heartbeat. Is he better than Luongo? NOT EVEN CLOSE. Put him at the helm of starter, he won't fare so well I think. He still needs a few more seasons for that. His stats are great but mostly in part against teams management calculates he should be able to win in order for our No.1 to get rested.

My prediction is if they get rid of Cory, he will be a starter for whoever grabs him he'll possibly squeak his team into the playoffs (Or not) next year while Lu will bring us back into the top 3 next year.

Schneider can never take No.1 here. If he did, he would go the way of Snow or Cloutier. Loungo is the best we've ever had. Vancouver fans (Mostly bandwagoneers) will always find something to pick about no matter how good they have it. Without Lu, we would be doing exactly what Washington is doing right now. Struggling to stay in.

Let Cory go and lets move on. I doubt if we'll regret it in the next 2 to 3 years.


this is just a ridiculous portrayal of the situation in Vancouver,and pretty much an attack on Schneider.Luongo is our number 1 and deservedly so? while I agree Luongo has been a very reliable starter for the majority of the regular season,come playoff time,all the fans are sitting around the poker table,all eyes on lou,and we dont know what to expect on the river.the guy could be holding Aces,or he's got nothing.I for one am tired of Luongo constantly being the guy,and collapsing.Let's not forgot the only reason the Canucks have a goaltending controversy(if that's what we're calling it) is because Schneider has played his way from a backup to a viable starter.Any true Canucks fan would be hard pressed to not admit Luongo's play in the playoffs has forever dipped since Scott Niedermayer scored that goal to send Anaheim to the conference final in Luongo's first season here,where Luongo was looking at the ref asking for goaltender interference.He played like the Superstar goalie we all know he can be in that first playoffs,all the saves versus Dallas and he was THE only reason we were in the series at all against Anaheim,who at the time were clearly a superior team,and the best goaltending in the world couldn't save us that series.All in all i'm basically saying that ever since that goal Luongo has not been the goaltender he was that first year for us in that playoffs,honestly he's looked rattled since,he needs to find the consistency he had in that series.And to tell me Luongo is miles ahead and that we would be where Washington is right now is just pathetic.Washington has several problems that we do not have,and we would be exactly where we are now with Schneider in net the whole season,and that's my opinion.Just because he hasn't been given the games to prove himself you can't discredit the guy,his lateral ability,all around awareness,ability to Never let his emotions affect his play and overall CONSISTENCY let alone his record as a starter sv % GAA whatever you want have all been stellar,and he hasn't had a chance to prove himself in the playoffs,and basically referencing one game where he started as a failure simply because you view it as one does not make it true,let's not forget Luongo is the one who let's in 5,6,or 7 in multiple series,hell if we only get scored against twice with Schneider at least its not 7!

and if your gunna call me a bandwagoner because my opinion is different from yours realize i support 2 franchises that haven't won a championship in 90+ years of being in their respective league(Vikings and Canucks)I coulda picked any teams that were good at the time

Schneids will not allow Lou to 'absolutely choke' , if AV does his job well.
We already know what Cory can do against the top teams.
l understand playoffs is way different from regular games,
but mentally and technically, Schneids is better than Lou.

lf this happens, l want to know if you guys would still want to see Schneids go.

btw, Schneids is the only reason my wife doesn't mind me watching a Canucks game.
Letting him go means trouble in the living room.

A lot will depend on the playoffs. Situation is not a sure thing though. Let's take the emotions out and think practically. What can happen:

Option 1. Keep Luongo, Trade Schneider.
- Probably the safest bet - Schneider will likely fetch us an important asset, and everybody will be unhappy for the first few weeks. Given our depth, it will be for the future rather than immediate help. It will likely seem like we got fleeced because we love CS so much. CDCers will bicker over whether MG is the right guy for the job, especially when the Canucks and Luongo enter their annual slump mode in October.

Option 2. Keep Schneider, Trade Luongo.
- Not as outlandish as people think it is. Only concern for me is it looks bad as an organization to part ways with a franchise goalie like this, especially one who is breaking all kinds of franchise records. But Luongo at cap hit of ~5M is very reasonable. The length of the contract, not so much. But if Jeff Carter (who is not worth his contract or his cap hit) can be traded twice, I'm sure there is a market for an elite goalie, gold medalist, with great work ethic, and well-liked teammate and a veteran leader. Tampa Bay, Toronto, Columbus are just three teams that basically imploded largely due to their goaltending. I think they can throw some important pieces for a goalie that could stablize and secure that position right away - remember how Luongo stabilized the Canucks when we hadn't had a stable goalie for a decade? He does have a NTC, but I really don't think that matters in this day and age; so many guys willing to waive their NTC. If Lu agrees to waive, then it will not be for hockey related reason, that's for sure. If this unlikely scenario does unfold, he'll likely be headed somewhere closer to Florida (family) or Montreal (family) i.e. somewhere in the East.

Third Option. Keep Luongo. Keep Schneider.
The only reason why this will likely not happen is because we think Schneider will want to be a starter somewhere else. But if we were to offer him market value and promise him more starts as 1A, 1B tandem, will he stay? He'll have a better chance at winning than at a rebuilding club like Columbus. If we go far into the playoffs again, our guys would have played roughly 50 more games. That's about ~210 games over two seasons. We will need two goalies next year. Luongo has played a lot of hockey already in his young career (the guy used to start 70 games regularly). Schneider is a smart guy. He realizes what this team can offer and likes the organization. Does he covet the starting role more than winning as a 1B guy? Time will tell. If we really wanted to, we could clear out cap space deadweights in Ballard, and that alone would give us space for Schneids to stay. Both Luongo and Schneider have stolen SO many games this year; I fee like ~8M is justified to have a WALL in our net. And for those who bring up Price's cap hit to compare to Schneids, know this... Price's payday is coming soon.

Fourth Option. Trade Luongo. Trade Schneider.
Kidding.


Option 1. We'll have a lot of very emotional fans that won't understand due to their lack of knowledge on how it should work or why, but all you have to do is look at Hodgson and how it's been forgotten already after a few short weeks.

so what's with ppl mentioning if,should, luongo meltdown , Luongo will melt down in the playoff in almost every post? it's as if the fans here wanted him to fail so badly that he'll be shipped out and Schneider will be our starter... Keep in mind.. If Luongo were to falter, and Schneider does ok.. prolly means we are out of the playoff and another year wasted.. Each passing year our chance of winning the cup decrease exponentially,, we are getting older.. teams are starting to figure out the Sedins.. and we'll just become a good regular season team that'll make the playoff with no chance of winning the cup anytime soon... So i guess those that wants Schneider to be the starter here and Luongo to be shipped out for a bag of pucks don't really want the team to win the Cup ever... Sure Schneider being the starter here could be good in the long term.. but we probably won't have as strong of a team forward and defense wise to make a cup run.. Salo who knows could be retired this yr or next.. Sedins point production is starting to dip as it's getting back to the clutch and grab era, who knows if any of our rookies in the farm will ever pan out.. etc etc etc.. so much question marks..

If we're gonna ride the hot goalie during the playoffs and both goalies aren't hot anymore, who do you go with? Luo or Schneider?


if both suck, nux cant win anyway. put in the guy w more experience.

as for cory, he is a proven reg season backup. he hasnt had a full load in nhl yet, and his only start in playoff was a disaster. no gm in his right mind will take that over lui based on a handful of good reg season gms. tuka rask had amazing reg season numbers, but blew a 3-0 series lead. quick has vezina numbers, but i dont see him performing great in the playoffs.

the only way mg will keep cory is if he wins the cup for nux. taking them far, say15 wins, wont be good enough since lui already did that.

I would absolutely love to keep both goalies. But this coulda, shoulda, woulda attitude about Cory being better is ridiculous. It's creating a negative impact on the team. They are human and we'll see the effects if it gets worst regardless of what their poker faces tell you on camera.

The only way to find out is to dump Cory. Because we sure as hell ain't gonna dump Roberto.


Whatever Nancy dont get your panties in a bunch, I dont think its creating a negative impact on the team, having two solid goal tenders is definetly creating a positive impact. It looks like Schneids would be a solid goalie for any team, he just has that about him. Cory's the most confident goalie I've seen in a long ass time, he hasn't dissapointed us once this season. Lu, as much as I am still a fan of him and support him, has been for the last 3 years having stellar seasons and brings us in the playoffs, but somehow choking big time (Chi, Bos). I think Schneids would have won us that game 7 or atleast not let in as many goals. Keep Lu for the playoffs untill he messes up big time, then put in Schneids

And by messes up big time I mean like game 4,5,6 vs Chicago and 3,4,6,7 vs Boston. Those are moments where I trip out with Luongo, I dont know what to think of the guy when he pulls sh** off like that. Goal after goal leading to us being blown out and embarrassed.

But Boston didn't burn their city down. Schneider is a Canuck yes. A very good Canuck. But Luongo is our No.1 and all this nonsense that an unproven backup goalie (But a brilliant one) is better than Roberto is childish, idiotic and can only come from bandwagoneers that don't know hockey.

I can tell you're a back seat passenger.

First of all Boston did burn their city down, it just wasn't over hockey.. Second, teams take the risk more often than not going with budding young talents over the aging superstar.

Analysts and GMs are predicting this kid will be a superstar. Your the only person claiming he's going to buckle under the pressure.. I'll take bob Mackenzie's opinion over yours any day.

It's not a debate on who's better.. It's what's better in the long run for the team.

The younger goalie that's proving more and more each game that he's most likely going to be a star for years to come.

Or the older star goalie with a PROVEN track record of meltdowns in the playoffs

I'm not trying to diss Lu but more just shooting down your unproven going to buckle under the pressure theory.. Sure Lu went to the finals but he has also proved he gives in under pressure in the post season

Since Lou was injured a few years back the Canucks have played 8 series in the last 3 seasons. Lou has been bad to very bad in at least 2 games in 5 of them series. All 3 times vs Chicago and once vs L.A and once vs Boston he was terrible, and he was very good in 3 series.
To think Lou has put all his demons behind him when this has been 2nd worst season as aCanuck does not bode well for the team.The only season Lou was worse than this year was 2009-2010 when he had a 2.57 gaa in the regular season and a lovely 3.22 gaa in the playoffs.
In the last 3 years prior to this year Lous gaa for the regular season is 1/2 goal a better than his playoff average. If this happens again one can expect to be toast in round 2 if AV does not wake up and give Cory the chance to right the ship because giving up 3 goals a game will not get it done.

Is he better than Luongo? NOT EVEN CLOSE. Put him at the helm of starter, he won't fare so well I think. He still needs a few more seasons for that.


This is where I stopped reading. Jeez, the Luongo fan boys are just as unrealistic as the Luongo haters. Normally I don't like arguing with the children on this forum, but I couldn't resist telling you how dumb your comment is.

At the same time, you dont have to worry your pretty little head about Luongo not being here next year. We are stuck with him, like it or not. Rest assured you will have his nuts securely fastened to your chin for the foreseeable future. Congrats

I think we should trade Lou to Florida. His family is there so maybe he would wave his no trade. Get in return a prospects, clear some cap space. And go with schnieds

This could happen in a perfect world....but this world is not perfect.

If it were up to me, I would keep Cory and Roberto. I absolutely love both these guys. Cory is a class act. But they are human. To say Cory feels he can be starter and Roberto feels unnecessary pressure from fans and media is valid and most likely true.

Most GMs and coaches are saying, "Unproven because he's never had a full season." This is a bang on assessment.

Like a 100m sprinter at the top of his field moving up to 400m and find he is average and should stay in 100m.

Schneider is a brilliant goalie. But only as BACKUP in Vancouver. He will not be as good as Luongo unless he leaves.

It's a painful truth. One wouldn't need to analyze any further.


I understand and respect what your trying to say But when your paid like the top dog then you should expect to get the pressure like Luongo does.Fair or not. You think it would have been ANY better in another hockey market place like Toronto,Montreal, or even N.Y? Yes Cory wants to be a starter one day. And yes he likes it here. But he also doesn't want to start in a place where he might lose alot of games too. He likes to win!
Most people thinks Cory is on the block . Just like most people here thought Cory wouldn't even play one here or that if he did play all he would get is 5 -10 a season as a backup. Well those people were wrong. We been hearing Cory being traded since Luongo been traded here 6 years ago and Cory is still here. If Cory wanted to be a starter he could have turned down his last contract and sign with whoever when his last contract last expired. But in a cap era we don't know that. I'm with you if we could keep both of them.I'm for it!!! Remember there is no rush in trading either one of them. Cory is RFA.
Yes its the painfull truth But IMO for you to say it has a negative affect on the team is dumb founded. It comes from the fans and media.

Look at the Caps. That would be us if it weren't for Roberto. Proven.


No this is not proven you idiot. This is not the same team as when Luongo first came. Half of our defense and out entire bottom 6 from that team isn't even in the NHL, the Sedins hadn't become elite and we had no second line.

Luongo is not the center of this team any more, it's the Sedins and our balanced offense. You completely under value our teams skill, we are one of the most skilled teams in the league and have a great defense. We would be a playoff team and win the NW with most NHL starters in net.

This teams offense/defense is better than the WCE era tea, who made the playoffs with cloutier, pretty sure you're being a retard and completely disregarding the rest of the team.

Also you people under value Schneider. His save percentage, right now, is the third highest in NHL history. You know that Elliot fellow on the blues? He's only played 5 more games than Schneider and is the only one with a higher save percentage. He has played in the biggest games of the year (Chicago, Boston) and has shown so far he is a big game goalie. Also, his personality is something that adds value to him, everyone loves Cory.

If Luongo doesn't do well this playoffs, we should trade him for whatever we can get, use that cap and get one of the Nashville Dmen and sign Schneider for 3.5-4 million. He would want to leave because the city would HATE him if he fracks up again.

How is Schneider creating negative effects on the team? I get no sense of that at all.


You are on CDC it's rare for sense to be made.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

Yes its the painfull truth But IMO for you to say it has a negative affect on the team is dumb founded. It comes from the fans and media.


In a perfect world, I would absolutely love to keep both Roberto and Cory. But this will not be the case after the Playoffs whether we win the Cup or not. It just won't. Luongo is the franchise goalie and Cory is much too good to be backup. Not as good as Roberto but good enough where the bandwagoneers can use it to blame any woes the Canucks experience. Hearing emotional hockey illiterates making wild statements like, "If Schneider played we would have won...". How dumb. Even when the team in front of Lu chokes, he's to blame.

You don't think the team might be feeling the negativity from the media and the bandwagoneers? I know these guys are professionals but they are human and don't live in a bubble. Doesn't Lu have enough on his plate only to add the stress of the stupid comments being made about him? Do you think psychologically the team mentally choosing a preference between the two goalies will affect their game play? One might say, "How can they be negatively affected when they're 1st in the West and on the verge of capturing the prez?" It's because they are that bloody good they are where they are. But with the unnecessary pressure, we won't go deep. And it won't be because of Lu.

BTW. The Boston series we lost because the whole team choked. Not because of Luongo. Mostly because of their jesus philosophy and numerous injuries we later found out about. Neither Lu or Cory would have made a difference.


Crap. Ducks just scored again.

You have to be a true bandwagoneer if you buy Mike's line about looking for the right deal to trade Luongo.

True fans and hockey diehards know, that is double talk for, "Luongo is a high ticket commodity now or next year, we'll keep him around just in case Schneider turns out to be a lemon and chokes games."

And choke he will.

I know this. I'm never wrong.

Tonight's game is a prime example of why Schneider should never be traded away.

You mean because Schneider is a better goal scorer than Luongo and plays the man better?

Tonight's game is a prime example on the team choking and using Luongo as the usual scapegoat.


LOL. burrows just scored. Sigh of relief. Thought he was hurt bad.

In case there is another breakdown from our beloved Luongo.

Two of the goals were pretty soft. I dunno. Most goalies stop those ones.

Ya, one for sure.

Hopefully pulling Lu will send a message to the team to stop playing crappy hockey. With the exception of the mad men like Burrows and Higgins.
