Schneider Did Everything

Recommended Posts

Are people seriously this crazy to rank Luongo as one of the best goaltenders in the league!!?

If that was Luongo people would be trying to burn his house down right now, but because it was Schneider it's ok

I'm sure someones replied already, but Schneider gave up 4 goals in 3 games. Luongo let in close to 40 in 3 games in Boston.

Luongo did everything Games 1-2.

Schneids did everything Games 3-5.

Both laid it all out on the line.

Last year, Lu supporters were saying that Schneider's numbers were so good because the Canucks were protecting him from the top teams. This year, he was given many of the top games over Luongo and he played fantastic in them and he improved upon his stats from last year. Then the Lu supporters started saying he doesn't have the playoff experience so he can't possibly be a better option than Luongo. So the playoffs start, Lu plays good but not great, Schneider comes in and plays fantastic again. His stats again are vastly better than Luongo's. Both goalies faced the same types of defensive breakdowns, but only one kept his team within striking distance. Now the Lu supporters have changed tactics again and they're saying that Schneider only managed to keep his numbers so good because he didn't face the pressure of being #1, the type of pressure that has been Luongo's undoing time and time again. My guess? Schneider will prove them wrong again next year, in Canucks blue and green.

What's with this?

Luongo was NOT that good in games 1-2. Game 1 was the better of the two games, but he still let in one pretty bad goal. One pretty bad goal in a one-goal loss in which the other team's goalie is playing lights out is enough to shift the momentum of the series, and it did. Game 2 Luongo was worse, letting in multiple soft goals. Schneider didn't have any such soft goals go by him. Schneider played much better. Period.

IF the management team and the coaching staff no longer think they should keep the same path with Lu, he will ask for a trade.

now do the management and coaching staff want to part ways with Lu? only the summer can tell.

LOL @ schneider did everything, if he did, then we'd still be playing right now. I'm sorry, as a Luongo fan that had to hear every fan give it to him for things that weren't his fault, im gonna have to take the other side here on Schneider

Schnieder will not get less than 4mil...I think anything less is a slap in his face.

Something to think about:

Canucks in this series scored only 8 goals in 5 games and won 1 game in the first round, can't blame Schnieds or Lu one bit

SCF, Canucks scored 8 goals as well in 7 games(2 more games) but won 3 games, but LU gets the entire blame for the loss from everyone....

What does this tell everyone??

Enough said.

What people aren't figuring out is that LA's offensive line spent time studying Luongo's goalie style. You can be damn sure that the week leading up to the series, LA was practicing lateral front of net passes and high blocker/glove one-timers. LA did a good job scouting his weaknesses and practicing exactly what they needed to be successful against him.

When Cory came in, LA was not ready for the change. They couldn't figure out how to apply all of what they've been practicing to a more stand-up goalie. So they went to relying on point shots (which actually forced the defense to pay attention to the front of the net, which they hadn't been during games 1 and 2).

So, in summary:

  • Cory looked better because LA did not study him well enough. They put all their eggs in the "we'll be shooting against Luongo" basket, and when Cory came in, he looked lights-out because they weren't exploiting his weaknesses.

  • The subsequent change of offensive play from Cory coming in forced the defense to pay attention and compress, whereas they should have been doing that from the beginning of the series.

  • You can't win a series if you don't score.

Cory and Luongo are the best pairing in the league. You wouldn't split up the Sedins because Hank has a drought. Luongo and Cory are pioneering a successful goalie pairing, which is very rare in the modern NHL. Don't fix what ain't broken.

The reason why I like Schneider better than Luongo is his attitude. When he gets scored on, he gets back up and refuses to look defeated. This sort of charisma rubs off on the rest of the team and boosts everyone's confidence that they can still stay in the game. It also shows during interviews. He answers questions without being defensive, admits when he could have done better, and always seems to put the team first. All of these qualities make him just a more likable person. Even if Luongo played well this season, I choose Schneider simply because he has better qualities that make the team more effective.

Schneider is harder to figure than Lou because he does not have the weaknesses that teams have found in Lou's game. Lou is very predictable, always down and quite often not set for the shot. Teams fire shots from all angles on Lou because of that. He also cheats on shots and not square.

The consistancy that Schneider shows is the same as goalies like Quick, Smith, Lundquist ...they are better because they have better fundamentals than others.They are more patient than Lou.

um pretty sure we didn't lose either game 1 or game 2 until half way or late in the 3rd period despite being badly outplayed
