Why was Cory Schneider never traded?

Lemme take you back a few years.

http://m.thehockeynews.com/articles/27723-Canucks-come-to-terms-on-12year-contract-extension-with-Luongo.html

Luongo signs with the Canucks for 12 years. I think we all thought he was here for life and Schneider was the one on his way out. So why did that never happen? Why was it that Mike Gillis kept Schneider around for as long as he has AFTER committing to Luongo? Why was Schneider never traded to improve our team after he re-signed Luongo to prevent a goalie controversy? I thought Lack was the future? At least, that is what everybody told me, so there was no room for Schneider.

Is Luongo being shopped moreso because he wants out or because Gillis now thinks Schneider is his goalie? *cough* mismanagement

Because Schneider exceeded his expectations. :P

Or that's what I think.

Because we wanted to see if he could become a good goalie before we shipped him out for pittance.

Looks like we made the right choice.

'Cause he's better than Luongo.

I'm sure there have been plenty of offers the past couple of years and they just kept getting better. With the inconsistent play of Luongo in the playoffs, MG kept Schneider around.

It was far too early to trade Schneider back then. He had no real trade value until recently.

Because he's the goalie we need right now and from what it looks like the whole team puts in alot more effort when he's in net.

He was never traded because why would he be?

I consider him the # 1 now.

This is a ridiculous question. Lack wasn't nearly ready for NHL (and probably still isn't QUITE ready for backup duties) so we needed someone to play backup, Schneider was it. We weren't grooming him to take over for Lu (at least not publicly) but he has improved far beyond expectations into a legitimate #1, why WOULDN'T we keep him and trade Lu? Want to get younger remember?

Schneider probably wasn't even worth a 2nd round pick at that time.

Makes me wonder if he was on the market last summer or this trade deadline.

So in a few more years, will you ask, "Why didn't we trade Lack?"

Schneider back then was Lack right now, people even doubted if he would make the NHL.

You've been a member since 2006, you should know this.

Debatable, but why did Gillis even let it get to that point after committing to Luongo?

As mentioned: value

Why get a decent return when you can get a great return years later? It's not as if we needed to move him at the time anyway
