Luongo on the fox

Management made the choice to jettison Luo.Specifically,Gillis.

A no-trade clause requires a player's consent before a trade involving that player is made. If a player has a no-movement clause, the player cannot be traded, waived, or sent down to the minors without that player's approval.

Good point.

Management can only hope a player co-operates since they do have the final say. I remember a few years ago when a similar problem occurred between the Leafs and Sundin.

The team in front of him choked just as hard as he did.

.....This is quite true,but Lou being the class act he is,said he would do whatever is good for the team.All the while knowing he was being stabbed in the back by management.

It was probably AV's choice to go with Cory in the third game that ultimately decided the future for Roberto.

"I don't get what you mean by "stabbed in the back." How did they stab him in the back? From Schneider being on the rise to stardom?" The Lock

One losing playoff appearance is hardly a rise to stardom.

Actually,Gillis blew it big time.

The series was lost.

Kes was a bag of bananas and Danny should not have been playing ,whatsoever.

It can be argued that the Canucks placed Daniel in jeopardy by playing him,relying on him to get the team out of a hole there was no coming out of ,anyways.

Without a second line center man or a winger he could play with this team was going nowhere.Did they not have a clue Kesler sucked since January and he is the ace in the hole that can change games and even series?

Why in the world would you pick that moment to throw the franchise's goaltender?

Start Luo.It was his to lose.Now,Gillis has to squirm himself out an equitable deal for Luo.

I like to think on the bright (and hopeful) side...

To me, the bright side is Gillis and Luongo talking things out and Lu staying this season.

Luongo and Schneider battle it out between hot and cold.

Canucks end up near (or topping) 2010/11's record-breaking regular season, and push Canucks back into cup contenders.

I realize in doing that, we will commit the most salary (correct if wrong) to goaltending in the NHL.

However, we may also create the absolute best goaltending team in the NHL.

What's more, we still have nearly 10 million (please correct if wrong) in cap space for smart spending.

Between Schneider and Luongo, a cup would sweep all differences aside.

If Luongo wants to be the best, like he always claims he does, he would go for the Cup.

Let's be honest here, the Panthers and Leafs aren't going to give him that chance anytime soon.

He would fight Cory for the job and attempt to show the youngster that he still has game.

Cory's already signed and if he doesn't start, he's not the type to whine or pout.

In winning a cup, Luongo would prove to himself and everyone else that he is an undisputed winner.

He would instantly earn his place in the Hockey Hall of Fame. I think he can do it, too.

If Luongo can man up, pump his own tires, and lead Vancouver back to tops in goaltending, I think we have an equal or better chance than 2010/11 to win the Cup.

Again, just my bright (and hopeful) side...

Luo went 0 for 2 with no Daniel in the lineup.

Cory went 1 for 3 with Daniel in the lineup for two games.

Upon Daniel's return Corey got the W and the team tallied their only win of the series.

He has a NTC not a NMC (according to Cap Geek)

He'll be in the minors to clear up cap space if he becomes too difficult.

Can't send a player with a no movement anywhere without that player waiving the clause... no minors for lou, no europe for lou... 5.3 million bench warmer.

Schneider .960 S% & 1.31 GAA

Luongo .891 S% & 3.59 GAA

Who gave the team the better chance to win?
