We didn't, it was Ellis that thought the Canucks should give him a shot at backing up Schneider

Sign Turco, have him teach Schneider how to handle the puck.

If your gonna sign a band-aid backup. Sign one that benefits your starter the most.

That's been well established already. The Canucks weren't even practicing.

Not sure why people around here ever wanted him...

We didn't, it was Ellis that thought the Canucks should give him a shot at backing up Schneider

Well, people were talking about him in case we did move Luongo but didn't get a replacement and weren't ready to promote Lack yet. He was arguably the best of all the UFA goalies on the market, so was a reasonable suggestion.

At this point, we aren't sure if Luongo will be moved before the season starts, or during the season, or after. One of those is most likely (versus a Schneider deal or something else) but if it's not before the season, we weren't going to be likely to get our pick of the UFA crop and Ellis probably wouldn't have been available. Someone was bound to pick him up.

Yes they did trade Boucher back to Philly. Good move by JR Ellis is an upgrade over Boucher.

He was playing well in Charrlotte, and was probably the best option of all the avaliable UFA's.

I guess we will need to look elsewhere or to trade for someone.

Ya and then when he gets his 1st paycheck charge him for the TV he destroyed and the damage to the dressing room a few years ago when he was here with the Stars.

Like Schneider has anything to learn from this guy, Turco's career is done.

Good move for Carolina. Ellis would have been my first choice for a backup if/when we trade Luongo.

I suggest Philly will need to have Bryz, Leighton and Boucher in goal all at the same time, stacked on top of each other if they want to compete!!!
Rather than rule Philly out of the race to trade for Luongo, I think that this move signals that they might be putting a package together.
