Hello there folks, we've all heard it before, that Schneider is "unproven". Now I've spent a lot of time trying to understand this argument as it seems to be the only one the Luongo "lovers" can come up with for why Schneider shouldn't be the number 1 guy. I have concluded that this is in fact not an argument but BS that spews from those that fear change for whatever reason.
So here's what I've come up with:
According to you luongo "lovers", Schneider is as you put it, "unproven". Okay so basically what I understand is that in order to prove himself, he has to play a lot of games, but in order to play a lot of games, he has to prove himself. You see how I'm having a hard time understanding the whole "unproven" argument? It's a lose-lose situation for Schneider! He can't prove himself because we won't play him as our number 1! And we won't play him as our number 1 because he's unproven!! GO FIGURE!!!
This is some Inception crap am I right!!!
I can appreciate the fact that some of you love Luongo but I think the people who realize that this is a business and NOT a popularity contest will agree that he has (for lack of better words) "sh*t the bed" on numerous BIG occasions and that change is needed.
I was under the assumption that the argument was... Not you, MG or AV really have a lot of control. NTC puts everything in Luongo's hands.
"Well to solve that just tell Luongo he will be the backup and sign Schneider to 3+ million 3 year deal!"
... no? What if Luongo agrees with that and we now have 8.5+ million tied up in goal tending. now what?
- Blow through our depth?
- Put Lu in the minors and loose him through waivers for nothing?
This argument keeps going in circles strictly because most dont understand the logistics, end of the day we shouldn't be asking who is more deserving of the position, we should be asking "Will the organization ask Lu to leave; if so, will Lou agree.
