Schneider and his agent are becoming impatient.

His agent wants Luongo gone now.

Hey Mike... That IS pointing fingers. Trade Schneider. If he's going to pull a Hodgson, it ain't gonne be pretty.



Luongo is signed for the rest of his career. If you need more convinving concerning the matter, look at the Oilers' sound bites on Luongo. Watch the games, and see for yourself. Luongo held the Canucks in until Bieksa scored. then it was open game. Tanev gets his first.



Trade Schneider and get the returns of veteran winning players who will help the team get over the playoff hunch; secondary scoring, toughness and a never quit attitude.



Keep Luongo.

I don't understand why none of the teams who were interested in Luongo, are now, not offering anything.

With the way, Luongo has been playing, I don't understand why teams aren't knocking at Gillis' door asking what he wants for Lu.

Yep. I think everyone knows that management wants to 'showcase' Luongo. And they've made a good risk, because Lu's been playing lights out. The longer teams wait, the higher the demand and asking price will be. It would be wiser for teams to begin offering, thus, creating a bidding war.

Either that. Or teams are waiting until Lu gets on a losing streak, and then forcing Gillis to "sell low".

Either way, though, it sucks to be Schneids at this point. I think he deserves to start and be No. 1 goaltender. But with the way, Lu has been playing, how can you sit him?

I respectfully disagree. I think Schneider is the more promising goalie, and he's entering his prime years as an athlete. He also has performed admirably during the regular season, and seems to have the mental capacity to perform when it's most rigorious and intense - the playoffs. Management has to keep Schneider. Luongo - while a great tender, needs and deserves to be given a No. 1 role on another team. But Canucks need to get something back in return. Wouldn't be fair for them to just give him away.

It will be better for the team overall, though, for Lu to be gone sooner rather than later.

Unless a deal comes along that makes us better or offers us a package of prospects/futures that won't be avaliable in the offseason. Lu stays till the offseason.

this is his agent speaking not schneider ok do people not get this schneider will continue to support luongo just as luongo would do the same they both knew this could happen having them both stay on until the offseason and that is what's going to happen unless some team panics its about the team not the individual both of them know this

It is hard to justify trading Lu with Vezina numbers.

God I hope they don't trade bobby lu.

He has also talked about potential deals, interested teams. Luongo has publicly waved his NTC.

He's trying to move him. Yes, he is waiting for the right deal. That doesn't mean he's trying to wait until the off-season..

It doesn't matter how many times McPhee says he has no interest in Luongo, constantly watching both of his tenders getting completely lit up and who knows how fast his stance could change.

pull a hodgson?

schneider is about to turn 27, and has spent a lot of his prime years sitting on the bench

he signed a contract with the expectation that he was going to play a lot. perhaps 75% -- there's virtually no reason to assume this wasn't a mutual understanding.

schneider has EVERY reason to be alarmed at what's going on here. his youth is passing him by.

someone has to go

Bye bye Lou. Thank you for all the years and also upping your trade value with your recent play. Lou will be traded in the next two weeks.

You can quote me on that when it happens.

Go to the tsn site and watch canucks oilers ice chips. Man its getting harder to trade Luongo each day haha the most calm and cool Lu I've ever seen. The way he's handling the media and this whole situation has got to be boosting his value on character points alone. I still think he will be the one gone in the end and he will be missed for sure. Cory is going to be a rockstar though, and our goaltending wont skip a beat.


Kinda reminds me of when you got 2 girls on the go and the one is super cool but out of nowhere has these crazy meltdowns and the other is really hot but you dont know much about her... Do you drop the new hot one because you think the other girl has figured her s**t out? or do you say ive seen enough of this crazy woman and see what the young'ns got?


Best post ever...

Lus melt downs are team melt downs, lu is just the fall guy. I think trading him is going to be a big mistake, should hold onto both for now.

How do u know that?? Schneids has big shoes to fill if Lu goes, believe it or not.

Any argument supporting Schneids is 100% assumption. He is a good goalie for sure, dont want to take that away from him, but does he have the potential to be better than Luongo?

tough task to be better than luongo one of the best all-time, but what schneids does do is allow the canucks to have solid goaltending for the next decade.

If they trade schneider (hypothetical) and lack doesnt become the goalie we all think he can be, where does that leave the canucks in 4years? right where edmonton or florida are now searching for a quality goalie the most important position on any team.

to me that is the biggest pro for keeping schneider, the two are very close right now but schneider allows the team stability moving forward.

You don't?

It's his contract that is driving this deal, as I have said this whole time. He's signed until 2022, which is a major, major commitment (read: risk) that other organizations are not eager to accept.
