-Schneider has proved he can be the number one over Luo and you're scared he can't handle it?

When exactly did he prove this?
I don't ride with the band, I roll with the team.

I've been a Canuck fan since 2004-05 when the team was going through a huge transition phase, missed the playoffs

- Schneider may not handle the pressure and crack.
- Kesler may not return a useful player after consecutive shoulder surgeries.
- Booth may not ever hit his 30-goal mark again.
- Garrison may not live up to the hype.
- Kassian may never develop into a physical top-6 forward.
- Tanev may not be ready for a full-time NHL spot.

Very fair questions, IMO. There's also the inverse statements you could propose, which I think are fair possiilities:

-Schneider seizes the opportunity and becomes one of the best goaltenders in the league
-Booth, with a full season of being healthy with the Canucks, has one of his best seasons ever posting 30+ goals
-Kassian lives up to his potential and shows signs of a blossoming power forward netting 20+ goals.

I personally think there's a lot more that can go wrong than right this season, but there's a fair chance the team could do better than ever.
No advertising please.

I usually end up winning most of the beak fests. I'm just not up to it today,

Same here. Most people there aren't too smart

NHL.com vids are annoying. Slow as hell and ads every 2 secs.
