Obvious answer is he thinks the lockout will end soon. But if the lockout is still going on after November who else really wants to see Schneider sign in a different league and be the number 1 on that team? I'd be really excited to see what numbers Schneider can put up as a starter.

He's a union rep. I'm sure he doesn't want to take himself away from the negotiations.

It's different for a goalie that has the starting job already in the NHL. He has nothing to prove. Why take the risk of getting injured. Furthermore, european hockey has larger rinks which could throw off his nhl game.

He's right, to a point. I'm no pro goalie, but I have played in international rinks, NHL rinks, random local rinks, and 3 on 3 rinks. They all have different angles. It can be weird for the first few shots, but you settle into it.

Once upon a time, there was no standard for NHL rinks. Many of them were different sizes.

He's got to stay focused on the Canucks though. No point putting his focus elsewhere until he gets his shot. Unless this thing keeps dragging on and he's worried about forgetting how to play.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

What do you mean stay focused on the Canucks? I doubt he's going to get attached to whatever team he goes to and won't come back. He needs to focus on playing hockey.

He said this a couple of days age. Apparently there isn't much available in Europe right now.

Schneider, who considered signing in Switzerland to play a couple of weeks ago, is resigned now to waiting the negotiations out here in North America.

“It’s pretty quiet in Europe,” Schneider said. “Unless Europe opens up, I don’t really have a choice but to stick it out here.

It's playing that keeps him sharp and focused, not the jersey color.

I like that our players have mostly stayed here, shows loyalty to the team and fans rather than the guys who immediately bolted overseas to play for other teams and get paid less $ than what they're negotiating for here. Schnieds is trying to get this season on track rather than letting it be dealt by someone else.

To say that he has the starting job right now is kind of jumping the shark. If Luongo doesn't get traded and doesn't do a TT and out play Schnieds, they'll pay them around 50% each, just to save face and show Luongo could still handle the load of being a starter in the NHL.

One thing is very clear... Luongo will not have the starting job and he will not get 50% of the starts or even close to it.

Although I think its great that he and most of the team haven't jumped ship for Europe,I do wonder what impact it will have on him
as time goes by. Even with the european ice being different dimensions,I would "think" that it would still keep your skills up to par but as he stated in one of his interviews a month or so ago that playing in Europe can develop bad habits when applied to the NHL. What are most goalies/players doing during the lockout to keep up their levels?

Lots of games, even in a potentially shortened season. Im not worried about anyone being rusty, keep in the gym and practice your stuff with some of the other guys in the mean time. They should be hittin full stride a couple weeks into the season regardless.

OMG seriously ? He has absolutely everything to prove. To himself his team and the league . He has started a total of 56 games ? I think he is the future but he has a loooong way to go .

Schneider's concern: Risk of injury, different angles affecting his game, moving to a different country is actually a big change in your life even for a year, stay fresh for the season, desire to be part of the negotiations, in a good zone working out and getting prepared, dealing with insurance and other potential contractual issues etc.

Canucks' concern: Risk of injury, improper nutrition, inadequate personnel care, risk of injury, insurance, risk of injury, checking in with its players, risk of injury, risk of injury, risk of injury.

Don't know what you have been sniffing. Roberto Luongo is gonna be traded as soon as there is a new CBA. They need to unload that contract.

If that were true, we better be getting Gardiner, 1st round pick and Van Rimsdyke or Lupul.
