For $900,000 or whatever it is that Cherry is overpaid, you'd think the CBC could afford someone who can pronounce players names, refrain from calling enforcers pukes, and spare us the endless self-righteous ranting.

I love Luongo but am not going to feel sorry for him - that is professional sport - when another competitor plays better than you, the obvious consequence is that they earn the job... He has had a great career and will continue to - people who think that no one will want him have no clue - Luongo would be a serious upgrade for a whole lot of teams, and the chance to acquire a proven franchise goaltender doesn't come along very often. His cap hit is modest and for teams that have money to spend, his contract is not going to deter them. If Philadelphia had not spent the farm on Bryz, you can imagine what they would do to get a Luongo. Tampa, Florida, Toronot - all teams that would be out of their mind to pass up the opportunity.

For those suggesting like the morons at the Province did, that Lecavalier will be coming to Vancouver, it is years to late to propose that, and makes absolutely no sense for Vancouver to take on his ridiculous contract - Luongo has much more value than a dump for a cap hit that would cripple the Canucks.


Lu has more value as a player, but his 10years declines a lot of his value. We would have to take a big contract in return without a doubt

Carter and Richards both have similar contracts that run til 2020 and 2022, at a combined $11 million - Carter is nowhere near as important a player as a franchise goaltender like Luongo, Richards is also very inconsistent, and they both have "reputations". Richards brought Philly Schenn, Simmonds and a 2nd, and Carter fetched Johnson and a 1st from Columbus, after they were fleeced by Philadelphia....

People are devaluing Luongo way too much. Besides, the Canucks can choose to spend the extra few million on a tandem and are not forced to move either guy in the short term. They are in a position of strength - the many desperate teams without goaltending on the other hand, are not.

I read the article of mike lieuts statement re Cory. Mike is his agent for those of you who didn't know. He takes the position that he thinks both goalies could conceivable be back next year. I believe its a distinct possibility.

No thanks. Besides, the contract Hodgson's agent will expect willl make him harder to move than Wade Reddon.

No way, Cody would ask for 60 minutes in goal a game or threaten to walk. He would also want a 81 game minimum between the pipes contract clause.

I'd like nothing more than to have both Lu and Cory stick with this team.

He's the only reason the Canucks can win.

He's the only reason the Canucks lost.

They can't go anywhere without him.

They'll never go anywhere with him.

He wants to be traded.

He's untradeable.

He's the best player they've ever had.

He's overrated.

He's a hall-of-famer.

He's a sieve.

His career numbers are outstanding.

He'll never get it done.

He needs to play all season.

He needs rest.

He's bulletproof.

He's ripped his groin.

His pads are too big.

His 5-hole is too big.

He's a great leader.

He's selfish.

He's an all-star.

He's a crybaby.

He's a Canuck.

He's Roberto Luongo.


What's next? Cheers.

Luongo is and always will be the Canucks starter.

Schneider got 1 playoff win and we're reading to lean on him over Luongo? No thanks. Plenty could still go wrong in Schneider's career, Luongo almost single-handedly won us the cup in the finals.

Plus, Luongo could always have a Thomas-like resurgence and have his best season coming up. Schneider's peak will be too far away from the rest of our core's anyway so doesn't make sense to go with Schneider.

Luongo s packing his bags and not coming back ....I don t know but it doesn t look like Lack is ready for NHL duties yet.

Canucks will be going from goaltending depth to praying Schneider wants to stay and signs here and also hoping he stays healthy..

Very sad moment when Lu will announce any day he is not coming back.

Announcement coming very soon ..

No.

If he wanted out he would have left a long time ago. He has thicker skin than that.

For the love of God, people have no clue what the facts are here. The facts are that Schneider posts better numbers than Luongo does, the Canucks play better as a whole when Schneider is in net, and the fans don't want Luongo here anymore.

Its not about Luongo being a bad goaltender.

Its about Schneider being the better goaltender.

Its actually about which goalie can be moved and which goalie can't. That's what it comes down to.

Facts for the this years playoffs: Schneider earned 100% more wins than Luongo did. Schneider had a save percentage of .960 while Luongo was at .891. Schneider's GAA was at 1.31 while Luongo's is at 3.59.

Facts for the regular season: Schneider earned 20 wins in 28 starts, Luongo earned 31 wins in 54 starts. Schneider had a save percentage of .937, while Luongo had a save percentage of .919. Schneider had a GAA of 1.96, Luongo had a GAA of 2.41.

Schneider looks to be the better goaltender to me. People who believe that Luongo was the only reason we won back to back presidents trophies seem to be taking a lot of credit from our "backup".

I don't particularly care for Don Cherry, and usually turn off his segment. But, mispronouncing someone's name, while it is irritating to those of us who are fans of those players; is hardly reason to say 'you can't trust anything he says'. Get real.

At least Don isn't OUR announcer. Haven't you ever noticed that Cheech calls Malhotra MalhoLtra all the time? He's our own guy; for the love of God, why can't he pronounce Manny's name right? All he has to do is read the flippin jersey if he's not sure.

I understand that. My problem with that however is that it has been made clear to Luongo (or so it seems from the fan's perspective) that he is no longer #1 in Vancouver. If Luongo has any self-respect, he should ask for a trade simply because he deserves better than being a back-up.

we cant afford to have both goalies unless we plan on icing the same team without any improvements. Schneider will be asking for a lot so to me it's one or the other.

Well Schneider doesn't have a contract as of now, so he's not our number 1 either.

If their plan is to sign Schneider and trade Luongo, they have to make sure that first of all Schneider wants to sign here; and second of all that Luongo would accept a trade, and that there's a team that's willing to make a deal that he'll go to.

It's not as simple as just trading Luongo like alot of fans seem to be pretending. There's alot of different parts to either plan.

Is Don Cherry stupid? He can't go anywhere. ONly Gillis can move him. And if Don Cherry was the coach would he have started Schneider?

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

 

1 Pavel Bure

2 Markus Naslund

3 Nathan Mackkinon

4 Jonathan Drouin.

5 Jonathan Tavares

forget the salary hit, loyalty, nationality, previous feats... in the end all that matters is whether the Canucks have a better chance at winning the cup with Schneider or Luongo?

Luongo has bad October's (every season) and has meltdowns here and there but when he's on form, he is awesome.

Schneider rarely has a bad game and the team plays better with him in net and is 5 years+ younger.


Granted that Schneider hasn't played the same amount of games, but yes...of course.

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

 

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.
