Given all the news around Lu getting traded this summer, the thought of Schneider as #1 and Lack as the back up is very intriguing given what I hear about Lack.

For those who follow these things closely, is Lack ready to be a back in NHL yet? How do you feel about that combo working next year?

Why have him as a back-up when he can be starting in the AHL? No point in putting his development to a halt just yet.

Maybe Matt Climie as a back-up?

Sounds good to me.... i guess if lack proves he is not quite nhl ready then we could sign/trade for a veteran backup goalie

I think we should get a veteran backup, a Johan Hedberg type goalie. This will be helpful if Schneider falters, but also so that we can control the amount of game (around 50 instead of 60+ for his first year).

Why couldn't Gillis pick up a cheap rental for 2012-2013 and give Lack another year to develop?
That's what i'm hoping will happen.

Let him play full time in the AHL ....maybe Alex Auld?

I think Lack would be better off with another year starting with the Wolves. Even if he is ready for the NHL, I'd rather see him playing a lot in the AHL. However, if he is ready by camp he could be the cheapest, best option to play solidly for 20 games as a backup this year.

Let's not count those chickens before they hatch, Canuck fans. Need to keep in mind the remote possibility of Schneider signing only a 1-year extension with VAN with an eye towards replacing Tim Thomas in goal for his hometown Bruins beginning in 2013. I think it'd be wise to wait and see what happens with Tuukka Rask, who's also an RFA this summer and currently makes $1.2m compared to Schneider's 900k.

Wouldn't it be horrible if, after all the smoke clears, the Canucks lost both Luongo and Schneider?

He may need more time to develop, but then having Schneider mentor him, having a goalie coach like Rollie, and getting him a feel for the rigors of the NHL may be the best way to get him ready.

Lack has all of tools to be a starter in this league. Extremely long and limber, covers a ton of net, great personality (good for the dressing room - he is one of the most popular players in the Wolves dressing room from what Ive read)

Of course this is all under the assumption that Schneider will still be here. None of this is a given.

Sign a veteran backup, Limit Cory to 60ish for his first full season.

Get the fans/media to accept that we will probably have fewer wins next year than the last two, while he settles into more starts.

Run him out of town the year after that. :ph34r:

No one BOOED Lou. Stop spreading that false rumour. Especially if you are supposed to be sticking up for the guy. If you are talking about that game near the end of the regular season, they were cheering Schneids coming in. Now if you want to say they cheered a little extra loud, because they could see Lou was not having the best night and were glad to see the young phoneme take over, then I'd not argue with you. But just stop rewriting history with this fabrication of exchanging boos with cheers.

Lou was given chance after chance to prove himself in playoff runs and slowly burned his own bridges by his inability to handle the pressure. Don't blame fans for that.

Nick Kypreos says that Lu has officially requested a trade at their year end meeting so Schneider and Lack look to be our goalie combo for next year and for many years to come :)

Bye Lui! Thanks for a great 6 years :)

Sanford had decent #s on a bad CBJ team 32gm 2.60GAA 0.911SA,
Hedberg is another good choice.

He's getting the play off starts in Chicago over Climie, and by all reports is playing very well, and under pressure. They were down 2-0 in a best of 5 & have come back to tie the series 2-2, Lack winning the last game 2-1 by memory...

Given all the news around Lu getting traded this summer, the thought of Schneider as #1 and Lack as the back up is very intriguing given what I hear about Lack.

For those who follow these things closely, is Lack ready to be a back in NHL yet? How do you feel about that combo working next year?
