I would go with whoever performed better in training camp

This. That's the beauty of having a true goaltending tandem. You have the luxury of playing the hot hand every night.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Loberto Ruongo.
I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

It will be Schneider. The team will make a statement to the fans on opening night that Cory is the new starter.

I go like this:
October: Lu, Lu, Lu, Cory, Lu, Cory, Lu, Lu, Cory Cory. 6 starts Lu, 4 starts CS.
November: Lu Lu Lu, Cory Cory, Lu, Lu, Lu, Cory Cory Cory, Lu Lu. 8 starts Lu, 5 starts CS
December: Cory, Cory, Cory, Cory, Cory, Lu, Lu, Cory, Cory, Lu, Lu, Cory, Lu, Lu, Lu. That is 7 starts Lu and 8 starts Cory
January: Cory, Cory, Cory, Cory, Cory, Lu, Lu, Cory, Lu, Cory, Lu, Lu. this give Lu 5 starts and Cory 7
February: Cory, Cory, Lu, Lu, Lu, Lu, Lu, Lu, Lu, Cory, Cory, Cory Cory. 6 Starts each.

Now we are at the deadline and Lu has played 32 games and Schneider has played 30. Couldn't be better layed out. haha, with 20 games to go...its easy to split ten each or ride the starter if one is gone.

Luongo, regardless of what happened in the playoffs, IMHO he is still the #1.

He played great in the playoffs, the team as a whole sucked. Schneider was simply to try and change momentum, and with Luongos comments after the media ran with it.

Snufalufagus ... hmm snuff
Imagine the amount of cocaine Snuf would need to get high :shock:

oh yeah LOU starts no matter what. If Corey goes on a insane rip then he starts "It's just the way she goes Ricky"

OMG yes yes yes yes ! That is the way it was done when there were 2 top notch goalies on a team. Remember the teams with Richter & Vanbiesbrouck. Vernon & Wamsley , Fuhr and Randford all teams that went all the way and took Stanley home . There are more examples like Belfour & Hasek, Fuhr & Moog, Barasso & Wregget etc just cant remember them all.
