I've always been a huge Lou fan, and it bugged the hell out of me to see everyone run him out of town. He's the saviour we don't deserve.

What do you guys think happens if he shuts out the oil tonight? Does he start next game?

If he continues to excel, do we ride the tandem are start shopping Schneider instead?

I'm confident in both goalies, both great personalities.

I really just want to see a cup, seeing as my dad has season tickets. I could care less who's playing b/c they're both amazing goalies.

you jinxed him.... now he's not gonna get a shoutout :lol: jk

but seriously, if the canucks can't get a premium for lui then keeping both goalies isn't that bad. You can never have enough solid goaltending!

I think Schneider should be the starter, but if he is going to be the starter I dont think it is good for him to have Luongo watching him from the bench. Luongo does cast a pretty large shadow and it seems to me that could be unnerving for Schneider.

Schneider is a good goaltender, but I won't be so quick to judge him as a starter goalie for most of a season. Unfortunately the goalie position is a very demanding position and I'm having a tough time justifying schineds as a starter.

I would keep Lu as my start goalie as he is proven and honestly he deserves much more from the fans. I also believe schnider needs another season before being a first at which point I would still hang on to lu. Just think of all the points we got last year alone due to his goaltending which put us into a ot or so when our forwards were having a tough time and could not score.

well on the game to nite lu looks sensational except on the oilers goal. really bad position. great shot but if lu was in position that would not go in... in my mind the lu shouldn't be pushed to hugging the crease between the pipes of the net.... no one was causing commotion.

Dammit. The OP really jinxed it...

Anyhow, I don't know if it is just me but I feel a lot more confident with Luongo is in net.

I wasn't trashing anyone, or implying someone sucks. I love each goaltender. I really don't dislike any player. All of them are great in my opinion.

There is a chance there could be a controversy, and there's a huge difference between Lundqvist/Biron & Lou/Schneids

Lol. Lundqvist is arguably the best goalie in the league, and Biron isn't top tier starting material in my opinion.

Lou and Schneids are two fantastic goalies buddy.


EDIT; this was mostly a reply to HaggisOBrien's 'humour.'

What's so bad about making these types of threads? Luongo's a fine goalie, and a rarity.

People like you who think fans run anyone out of town are just clueless, what are you in grade 10? Management make the calls and they don't hover over this message board to base their decisions on.

It is pretty obvious to most what is best for the team.

Unfortunately,the .org paid Corey a boatload to be the #1.

This is a situation that need's to be solved quickly,it's seeems to be a distraction for everyone and certainly the goalie tandem we have.
It's a managment issue,and as far as I'm concerned,they should go back to what it was before and ride it out for this short season.

I say keep em both all year and into the playoffs unless you get your asking price for one. Why not? Once the team is warmed up we have two of the best ten goalies in the league, stats wise over time: these two games mean nothing but missed points. 3 of em to be exact, too bad but nothing to cry over.

It's pretty obvious that having 2 good goalies is not the issue.

Anyone who says otherwise is out of their minds.

Detroit did it and won a cup.

The problem with this team is the same problem they had all along - they have a hard time scoring when it counts.
0-2 on the shoot out tonight.
0-3 in SCF.

I'm not implying that Lu is a bad goalie (I love Lu and Schneider). But, this thread have been posted so many time before and its still going.

Just play them 50-50 until Shneider shakes off the rust and gets back to his old self. Could be as soon as next game. Luongo still needs to be dealt. Having $10 mil invested in goaltending is ridiculous when half of it is always sitting on the bench and we have such an urgent need for decent second-liners. If MG decides not to deal Luongo, then he has to shop Schneider around. I think that would be a monumentally stupid decision but its still smarter than keeping both.
