If he does not get traded he can always say I am taking the year off to decide of my future...and spend time with my family..no explanation needed just like Thomas did.

Then what?


Did I really post this? Was I sober out of my mind or something? But I dn't s know now ll

Or seeing as Schneider replaced Luongo as the starter in the playoffs, he can pull a Thomas from two years ago when Rask replaced Thomas at the end of the season and the next year Thomas won the Vezina, Conn Smythe and the Stanley Cup.

What if Cory Schneider really is Roberto Luongo in a costume?! What if what if what if? Who cares about what if's? Reality is so much more interesting!


More likely that schneids is the third sedin - the rebel one who had his own apartment during his fetal development and decided to be a goalie just to annoy his older twin bros.

Then we get the Schnieder answer (if we can sign him) without losing Luogo. If we can sign Cory, I think he has a legitimate chance of being our number one goalie. If Roberto wanted to take a year Hiatus, beyond what my personal feeling on Thomas are and his motivation, the Canucks would be in a good position to answer can Cory be the top guy without losing Luongo.

In the end it would be a god thing for the team, or at least answer a lot of questions for people like me that don't "hate" Luongo or "love" Schnieder, we just think another guy could do the same job and get roughly the same results (possibly better, a cup).

Hey, we wouldn't have to pay him. Huge mistake on his part if he ever wants to play again. Credibility would go right out the window.

Luo won't pull a Thomas. He is a professional and realizes that it is time to let Schneider play.
In Luongo's time here ,he has conducted himself as the consumate professional and has only said that he would waive his NTC if that is what is the best for the team. There is no way that he going to stoop so low as to walk away from his team like Thomas has.
The main thing is that both Luo and Schneids are competitors and why they each have respect for each other. I just wish CDC would do the same and show respect for both of them. We don't know which one is going to get moved or if that is even going to happen. MG is not going to let one of these guys go for anything other than a package that can actually make the team better. Right now we have 2 top goalies that have won trophies as the best tandem so a package coming this way has to be a significant upgrade in another area or MG will do as he said and keep both goalies to start the next season.
Tampa obviously did not want to pay the price and went in a different direction. Toronto has a chance to get Luongo but they to are going to have to give to get. Burkes ego probably has him convinced that Edmonton will give him the #1 pick and that Vancouver will solve TO's goalie problems for a bunch of hand me downs.....sooner or later reality will hopefully prevail.
My gut tells me that when Luongo or Schneider get traded, it will be to a team that isn't on the radar yet.

Lou shutting up is not the same as him changing attitudes.

MG fired. He wasn't able to get a scrub in return for a waste of a contract or take a decent offer when he had a chance.

You have a disease called epistemological scepticism - you should get it lanced. The lay description is that you have an addiction to racing from unwarranted assumptions directly into foregone conclusions.

I'm assuming you meant this post for DownUnda, not me...in which case I sympathise with you.

Luongo FTW.

I used to looooove Thomas, but I was just so disappointed with the move he made. :(

Roberto wouldnt... he's a class act. Although if he did, the fans deserve it... 80th game of the season the team is on the brink of locking up another presidents trophy and he lets in 4 goals vs the ducks.Three which he had no chance on - as he gets pulled these classless idiots in Rogers Arena start booing him...


Absolutely disgraceful. The organization should beg him to stay.
