This is the problem. 27 goalies from McLean to Lu...and now we are chasing Lu out. the long term fan in me is looking at a dozen years of 20+ goalies to come.
The Canucks never really had a solid goalie like Cory Schneider develop as long as he did. Look at all the goalies at the time.
Felix Potvin just could gel with the team, traded to LA and he really caught fire.
Corey Hirsch A lot of hype but never lived up to it
Artus Ibre his style wasn't good for the NHL
Sean Burke I think was one the better goalies the canucks had but still didn't get a fair chance
Kay Whitmore Career back up
Kevin Weeks never really fit into the teams system
Dan Cloutier was a fan favour but just wasn't the best goalie around
Alex Auld another career back up
That is all I can think of, but like I said Schnieder is the first really good goalie "propsect" the Canucks ever had and he was never rushed which we are all seeing what happens when you are patient with a player while developing. I will be first to say that the 4mil cap hit is a bit much but the potential is deftainly there. Luongo should be traded by the weekend.
