Lack will be great and so will Cannata. We will have goaltender depth for years which is why Luongo is expendable.

Right now we don't have Lack on contract unfortunately. A lockout could mean he goes back to Sweden...

Lack will be good reminds me of luuuu

I think him and lu have the same bad habits in common

both are slow to get up, they make the initial save but rebounds are issues

If he's good enough to de-throne Schnieds in a couple years, then, well........ that's awesome.

How about we only worry about our current goaltending "controversy". Lack has yet to play a game for the Canucks, but I do feel like we're developing him the right way.

There is NO current controversy ...and there wont be in the future...right now we have 2 #1's and 2 solid backups .....when one of our #1's leaves or is moved , one of our backups moves up...logically if we pace it correctly and there isnt any game stoppages , then we should get 4-6 years out of each one and giving ourselves a constant trade option by having just one more then we need...<-------this is the ultimate option...but its never that smooth , injuries , trades , long poor playing streaks and simple bad luck can change everything so having "extra" is the Best option

Boy, if not next year then the season after Eddie should have the backup job locked down with the big club; he moves so well laterally, staying up in his knees to make saves, plus he has pretty strong reflexes with his pads and blocker to make his already massive frame seem even larger in the crease since his limbs just whip out to make saves look so efficient.

Bring him back, MG (after one of the goalies leaves).

Good video, haven't seen much of him but here's my take (and he is still developing).

1. Alot of shots seem to hit him square in the chest (GREAT sign, means he's in position alot) (at least in that vid).
2. Great size, looks alot like Lou out there
3. Good glove hand
4. Terrific reaction time, a number of tough reaction saves with the legs in that video
5. Rebound control is decent, saw a few being kicked out to bad spots but also an awareness on some where he is kicking them deliberately at times, good sign, means it will improve
6. Only real concern I saw was his lateral pushes aren't that great. Good enough given his size (somewhat makes up for it), but in the NHL when a split second makes a difference that push means alot, this is certainly one of Schnied's strengths, hard push, not overcomitting, staying in control between the posts and shoulders high.

Lack looked a bit like Lou on a number of those types of plays where he pushes too hard because he's a bit slower then is somewhat out of position, past the post. Clearly something he will develop/work on, but he looks like he has the makings of a terrific goalie.

We're not even through this goaltending controversy 100%, and Schneider has yet to play a single game as the official starter of the Canucks and already you're looking forward to another "controversy"? Jesus, what are you going to do on the first goal Schneider lets in next season, run him out of town?

Maybe I'm just in a foul mood, but christ, it's threads like these that epitomizes Canuck fans as being perceived as the worst in the league, or you know it could just be a slow news day.

More young goalies coming up can only mean good things for the team. If Lack or Cannata eventually makes the team and starts pushing Schneider for the #1 job then as always, the best goalie should win it. No more favouring one guy because of his questionable "superstar" status. Hopefully Gillis has learned his lesson there. The guy who is playing better must play.

He should pretty much step into corys old role of pushing the number one to be better night after night. But we are getting ahead of ourselves even discussing Lack when MG looks very much like he wont be the first to blink on the lou situation.

Perhaps not. But that is ultimately is fate -- being chased out.

Looks like MG and his crew know how to scout and develop goalies! :)

Cannata looks big, quick, solid but he sure holds his glove hand high all the time..., definitely impressive overall!

Wonder if MG's scouting of forward and D prospects has improved ? :huh:

There's no controversy. Schneider and Luongo are both being shipped out of town and are expected to fetch a top six forward, respectively. Much to the delight of the Vancouver Canucks organization, John Garrett will be stepping out of retirement to claim the role of the definitive, number one starter for at least the next few seasons. Lack is going to learn a lot.

The future goaltending controversy will be why "we" ever ran Luongo out of town and kept Schneider (Just a guess.)

Lack looks good but 2 points of concern for me:

1) Rebound control - Particularly on his blocker side... Keeps pushing it out out towards the hash marks or in the middle.
2) Side to side movement/Recovery - Looked a little slow at times but without having seen him play in person, it's hard to judge accurately

That being said, I saw a lot of desperation saves. From a fellow goalie perspective, the only time you should have to make a desperation save is if you made a mistake in the first place (read the play wrong, over committed, bad rebound, etc).

If there is hockey this season, I pray Schneider or Luongo are gone before the season starts. Having Lack be able to come and experience the NHL will do wonders for his development at this stage IMO.

I think you need to relax a bit. It's the future not now, there is no mention of our current cInteoversie so don't mention it. Just brings up Lou when it's not needed.

I see not a controversy but a great competition between two maybe three goalies. This means heightened play with a possible big trading chip in the future! I love our goalie situation from lou to canata!!!

If Luongo ends up getting traded, it would be just-desserts for Cory to have this happen to him too! Keep Lu and the tandem

The thing I am so impressed by is we got Lack for nothing. We signed him and now half the gm's in the league are salivating. Scotty Bowman is on record salivating with a goaltender man crush. I think this Swedish scouting thing has been working for us. First Eddler and now Lack. These are roster guys so to have two guys on the Canucks who we found in the Swedish backwoods is impressive.

Any thoughts?

Never never never forget that NHL hockey is a business. If it's anticipated that having a player stay for another year could generate enough revenue in fan merchandise, that will always always be part of the equation. Even  more so with a team that sells out every game and has 10 years or more worth of fans lined up to get their hands on seasons tickets. And now that Schneids is posed to step in, here comes another round of jersey sales. Puuuuurfectly timed. Controversy my butt. Never underestimate the influence of the marketing people.

(edit: yes, it's tongue in cheek. The thread is about controversy lol)

Nobody knows how he will do as a starter in the NHL. But he could be a great back-up goalie, backing up Schneider.

We'll see once he plays some NHL games.

I always felt bad for anyone who bought the coho jersey as a long term investment to a player that looked like he was poised to stick around. -Like a second coming of Linden or something. :)

:( Still a bit sad about it
