I'd give him 18-20 games, he'll most likely be traded before then though. I get the feeling he no longer wants to be here, Van fans suck.

24 or more since I think he will regain top form and blow up Van's idea of trading him.

I agree with you. If Schneider will play both of Saturday and Sunday game, Lu will be sit on bench usually unless he gets trade

6-12 games if he gets traded around trade deadline.

I think he play around 18-20 games. Ride who ever is hot, theres no reason for us to put any strain on either goalie when we have two assets. They are two of the best goalies in the league, we should take advantage of that and give them rest for the playoffs. The schedule is strenuous enough that having two top goalies is more important then ever.

I still think a Luongo trade will occur before the deadline this season, but if that doesn't happen, I think Roberto gets at around 18 games. It would be madness not to exploit the advantage of having two elite goaltenders during a tight, abbreviated season such as this. This is mainly the reason why there is absolutely no rush to move Lu.

A lot of it will hinge on how well the Canucks and their potential trading partners do. If Reimer and Scrivens (lol) crap the bed out of the gate this year, things change a great deal. If those two guys somehow manage to play incredibly well, Nonis will surely not have much desire to acquire Luongo. This will also change affect that return one can expect in a Luongo deal.

As much as I dislike Luongo, I could see him staying with the team, if no good trade is arranged. As a result, he could play 15-20 of the 48 due to all of the travel and back-to-back games this season. This is the year to have two numer one goalies on your roster.

Are you kidding me? First off, I can guarantee he will play more than 10 games. And second, even in 10 games, he's far more likely to get at least one than to get none at all. He's a far better goalie than you're giving him credit for.

If he shows up in Vancouver at the start of the season and remains all throughout...he would play around 18-22 games. There's a tight schedule, and playing Schneids 3-4 times a week consistently won't be the most favourable. It would be a waste not to exercise the option of having two elite goalies.

It's odd, I didn't think giving Luongo 1 shutout in my prediction would open such a can of worms.
