Where have you been?
Gillis and Gillman have both said that Schneider is their guy many times. It's obvious Luongo is on his way out.
Can you provide the quotes then? I just tried some googling and here's what I got:
From Sportsnet on June 1st (http://www.sportsnet...hockey_hearsay/)
The Vancouver Province notes it’s been reported in lots of different places that Canucks GM Mike Gillis has been contacting general managers around the league about the possibility of moving veteran goalie Roberto Luongo without yet having signed Cory Schneider. Not surprisingly, he insists that is absolutely untrue.
“I haven’t contacted anyone with respect to Roberto at all,” said Gillis on Thursday. “I’ve had people call me and ask about him and I’ve told them that we haven’t made any decisions at all about the future of our goaltending. And that’s absolutely the truth.
Gillis on The Team 1040, late July (http://fansspeakout....ead.php?tid=800) :
Part III: The goalies and loose ends: Gillis says he's okay starting the year with Schneider and Luongo because they're both such freaking nice guys, a non-update on Eddie Lack who the Canucks see on the same career trajectory as Schneider (so Schneider should prepare for eventually being replaced?), and Gillis preaches patience with Canuck prospects he's drafted since taking over as GM 4 years ago proving once again he's got an optimist.
Gillis to the National Post, June 20th (http://sports.nation...ir-goaltenders/) :
"“Roberto has impressed me from the moment I met him. Regardless of how well he plays, there’s this notion that no matter how good it is, it isn’t good enough. And it’s baffling to me because I think the guy is just an outstanding player who’s an outstanding person.”
and here's Gilman to the Toronto Sun, June 21st (http://www.torontosu...ngo-looms-large) :
“Mike has had calls on both our goalies,” Gilman said. “To this point, it falls under the category of problems you don’t mind having. Better to have too many than not enough. Everyone thinks it’s pre-ordained that someone is going, but that scenario (keeping both) does exist.”
A unique way of settling the problem was suggested to Gilman, that Gillis keep Luongo and deal Schneider.
“I guess anything is possible,” he said.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any saying that Luongo was definitely going....
