Canucks over the past couple of years have had slow starts and with either a 48 or 50 game season, if a slow start happens Canucks could be in trouble.With kesler out, AV isnt gonna play schroeder cause he doesnt know what hes doing. And what happens to LU?

And who is gonna be the last 5 teams to win the draft?

What does it matter, as long as they make the playoffs, all is good.
TOO much emphasis on first for the extra home game 7's which seem meaningless to the good teams.
VC have established themselves as a good road team, so fill the holes with quality players and build momentum toward the cup run.

I'm not going to be too concerned if there is a a bit of a slow start. If by mid February they're still toiling around 500 then I'll worry a bit, but if the Kings taught us anything last year, all you need is to get hot at the right moment to do some damage.

Plus (pending Luongo trade) we have 2 great goaltenders that AV can roll out.

We should be fine as long as Luongo isn't given too many games right away.

It will be interesting to see if the slow start is a Lou thing or a Canuck thing.

Team 1040 doesn't know crap. They still aren't allowed to talk about player movement and yet all of a sudden there are rumors again? Its all BS, personally I don't think lou is going to TO unless they give us a goalie back which isn't in anyone's TO trade rumors.

Having two goalies in a short season is a huge advantage. It would not surprise me in the least if Cory and Lu split the games 50/50.

You are massively annoying with refusing to believe Luongo is being traded. Just face the facts please.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

As long as he doesn't sh!t the bed in the playoffs for 3 straight years like Luongo, nobody will regret anything. Chances are that Schneider will be just fine. What are the odds that we get rid of one imploding goalie (Luongo) only to get stuck with another?

and in three years we will be hanging Cory out to dry once Lack comes up from the minors and the cycle to bury every Canucks goalie who ever played here will continue.

3 straight years LOL

Let's look at his last 5 playoffs with us

- Single handedly carries us into the playoffs and beat Dallas, loses against a super stacked Ducks team.
- Lost 2 years in a row to the most rigged hockey team i've ever seen this era. They had a 3rd line of Ladd, Versteeg, Bolland. 2 of which are 1st line caliber players.
- Out duels Pekka Rinne, 2 SO in the SCF, stopped the puck when we needed him most vs Hawks and Sharks.
- Team plays like crap in front of him in Boston, that's a team loss not a "Luongo" loss.
- Entire team craps the bed against the Kings. Edler was just terrible, Kesler/Daniel injured.

Luongo will end up in the hall of fame and is a tremendous goaltender. In a do or die game, and we're guaranteed Luongo's best..

Luongo >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Schneider by miles.

New CBA has changes regarding the draft lottery - now all 14 teams that miss the playoffs have a weighted chance to draft #1.

I see two potential paths for this season:

1. Canucks start out rusty, everyone flips out. Canucks play themselves into shape, make a run, and either miss the playoffs barely or just make it in but lose early on.

2. Canucks start out rusty, everyone flips out. Canucks figure it out fairly quickly and go on a tear, peak just in time for the playoffs, and finally win the Cup in a shortened season, causing millions of debates to break out over whether it's legit or not.

But what if they don't start out rusty? To my understanding all the players were locked out and most didn't play overseas. I think we will be fine.

The Canucks WILL be slow out of the gate. They always are and aside from ~5 players, everyone will be rustier than usual. Also have injuries to Kesler to deal with near the beginning, not enough depth, are Edler/Garrison fully rehabbed from injury and ready for games, etc...

I can guarantee outside of of the Sedin line and the powerplay we are going to have some SERIOUS scoring issues. Our second line is a mess without Kesler in the lineup and I really don't have faith in our bottom six scoring consistently. Not to mention losing Salo's bomb from the point. Sorry to all the Garrison fanboys, but he doesn't even touch Salo in terms of accuracy and shot placement.

There's enough for a slow start.

other than Luongo's first playoff year here, I can't say he has been great


not many goalies are in the HHOF, the latest are Fuhr and Roy
Hasek will get in, Broduer will be in

does luongo really belong? honestly

This..wait till the trade deadline because some team will be desparate and pay through the nose to make the playoffs.
