So what if we don't trade Luongo and he ends up outplaying Schneider, kind of like a reverse of what happened last year. In this situation would you rather keep Luongo and trade Schneider (who would probably get us a better return) or keep Schneider because he's younger, can only get better, he's also cheaper. I personally don't think this is going to happen, but it would be very confusing for canucks management if it did.

I think, from listening to the rumors that Lu has asked for a trade. So even if schneider gets out played it is still Lu that's going to get shipped out.

I'm the same - Luongo will be traded - whether it's before the season is over or not - that's another story.

I think that regardless of what happens this season, Luongo will be traded. Schneider has won the starting job and it is his now. I don't see any situation where Schneider is traded before Luongo.

Yah so what if Luongo just plays lights out and the team goes lights out and they go on like 15 game winning streak or something ridiculous like that.

There is no way, under ANY circumstances that Gillis keeps Luongo and trades Schneider. I'm not sure why you'd even make a poll about it.

Is this:

a.) Luongo in one of his "typical slow starts" (as per another thread in this forum) outplaying Schneider, or is it

b.) Luongo playing amazingly well and Schneider also playing amazingly well, but Luongo is playing that little bit better (kind of like last season)?

These are two completely different scenarios.

I personally think we should keep Schneider, but I was watching some video and I think it was TSN guys that mentioned something like this could happen and I thought it was interesting.

What if Luongo wins his next 100 NHL games? Do we keep him then? What if he cures AIDS?

Were that the case, I think the Canucks would go with Schneider. For Luongo to cure AIDS he'd likely have to spend a lot of time away from the rink.

The goalie who plays better in the playoffs? C'mon this is not about the reg season, even if Lou plays better the Canucks are smarter then to take another chance with Lou. It's over done move on, nothing to see.

I like Lu and all, but it seems a bit late to reverse our position to me. I suppose it Lu plays miles ahead of Schneids, then maybe.

All am hoping is that Cory doesn't become another Steve Mason...I was looking at both goalies stats after 68 games of their careers in the NHL and they are very close to eachother.Mason played infront a very bad team compared to the Canucks and now we know what has happened to him since his become more less a back up and now has a .500 record....I would keep Lu and trade Cory.Stat wise Cory has started only 56 games out of the 68 regular season games. And atleast I know Lu can take us to the finals with Cory we lost in the 1st round....LU all the way.

Steve Mason's record after 68 NHL games: 68 (w)38 (L)23 - (SOL)7
(Mins)4124 (GA)167 (SO)10 (GAA)2.29
(SV%).925
Cory's Stats after 68 NHL games: 68 (w)38 (L)17 — (SOL)4 (Mins)3639 (GA)136 (SO)4 (GAA)2.24 (SV%).928

I was hoping that Cory doesn't become another Lou and melt down in the playoffs every year. I would keep Cory.

Lu took us to the Finals what has cory done in the playoffs other then a 1st round departure...if its what have you done for me lately which it seems with alot of Nuck fans then the samething applies to Cory what has he done lately..

Schneider hasn't "won" anything... Don't be ignorant and just listen to the media outlets flaming this BS to you. Schnedier got 1 start in the playoffs, that's not earning or supplanting anything more than what it was, 1 game.

Luongo is still the better goalie, Schneider hasn't even played half a season, who knows if he can carry his good play from 20-30 games a season up to 50-60 like Lu can do without affecting his high level of play!

I'm glad you can make such absolute statements with 100% certainty. I didn't know this was Mike Gillis' secret CDC account!

Whoever is traded will most likely be the one that offers the best return in comparison to their value with the club. Schneider's future is brighter, and his value to other teams is greater, but the offers haven't been enough to make Gillis want to trade Schneider over Luongo. If a team offers an amazing deal for Schneider that we can't refuse, Gillis will take it, but it's still most likely Luongo is dealt.

It's only marginally about play, and mostly about value gained.

Hang onto both guys until the end. Yeah, well I kind of would like to see both goaltenders win the Cup.

Realistically speaking, it would be difficult to trade Luongo and get full value. There are options, but they are highly limited.

Who knows if Luongo will choke in the playoffs again? It's happened in the past a few times. I don't believe Schneider has had a chance to be a starter and choked before.

Huh? The reason Schneider "lost that series" was because he was replacing Lou who couldn't win us a game. That's fair too about the finals, obviously we can conclude if Schneider was in net that we wouldn't have made it that far . Sound logic

Realistically I don't see how anyone can say luongo is a better goalie based purely on him having more experience. Comparing the two it is obvious Schneider is more technically skilled and quicker.

You have a short, selective memory ! Lou gave up 7 goals in 2 games, Cory 4 goals in 3 games. Lou dug us a pretty deep hole in losing the first 2 games.

In that case, I see no reason to prevent Luongo from playing. It isn't like his trade value is sky high at the current moment anyways...might as well keep him until teams offer more for him if Gillis really wants to make a trade.
