So, if Luongo doesn't get moved and Schneider signs and they are comfortable dominating as a duo then who would you start on opening night?

Might seem like an easy question, and most would say whoever gives you the best chance to win (I don't even know who that is anymore), but it would send a message as to who our starter is for the season, Luongo or Schneids. Does Luongo simply get it because he is Luongo? Or did starting Schneider in the final games against LA prove that he is our guy?

I bet a few 'let's start lack's will be thrown in here but in an attempt to not get flamed for ANOTHER goaltending thread I am just curious to see who most people would start in our season opener against the Flames, and is you answer different for the home opener against the Oilers?

The controversy will still go on unless we trade one of the goalie. In my opinion Start Luongo Since there is a trade talk going on about luongo then why do we have to increase controversy by starting Schneider. If we start schneider that means luongo will certainly get traded. That is all.

Hockey will not be starting until December at the earliest with Fehr and the CBA. When it does start, i think Lu is in net.

No. Luongo is getting moved, there is no doubt about that. The team will not have a guy in crease who has basically said I would want to get traded, and you already know his relationship with the fans, and PLUS, we will not have a goalie in the crease who isn't 100% committed.

Honestly, if I'm the coach I'm starting Luongo. If he is still in Vancouver on day 1 of the regular season then he is still the #1 goalie. You do this out of respect for Luongo and you also do this because you know the ultimate intention is to deal Luongo so you want to emphasize that the man is still a starting goalie that a contender does not hesitate to put in their net as a #1. That would help sell Luongo better than showing everyone else that he's nothing but their disgruntled backup now.

Best guy in the preseason has to get it. Probably Schneider because we all know Lu isn't that good the first couple months.
