There are rumblings regarding Schneider's agent who might have played his cards differently in light of Luongo doing so good, as well as TSN finally going on record that Schneider will "have to seize his opportunity when it comes", which he has.
Basic fact is, the Canucks are the richest team between the pipes. Lets just enjoy this franchise's golden age now, for it will come to an abrupt stop in a few years.
Actually, the basic fact is:
To reiterate:"VAN isn't trading Schneider."
Oh, yeah, for conspiracy theorists, WSH isn't talking to VAN, has no plans to talk to VAN on any goalie. BTW, VAN isn't trading Schneider.
So in essence, you're saying Luongo is the better goalie... Hear that SmashianKassian? Or... See that? Stats don't lie right?
Trade Schneider if he's so unhappy about not being the undisputed number one.
.010% more when both are under 2 is a huge margin. (He actually has .940%)
If Luongo played the games Schneider did early on (When the team was rusty as H***) I don't think his stats would be quite what they were. Have you seen Schneider in his last few games?
I'm so happy I am not the only one who sees this, Brouwer is so redundant.
Brouwer is not a top 3 forward ... He has a career high of 40 points. Higgins put up more than that last year playing primarily on the 3rd line. At best that's a sideways move, but it's more likely a downgrade.
So downgrade to Brouwer ... downgrade to Neuvirth ... and receive a 1st and 2nd as compensation for getting fleeced on roster players?
I thought the goal of trading a goalie was to IMPROVE the team?
what do we think of:
or to CBJ for
2013 first, Ryan Johansen, Derek Dorsett.
No, and the 2nd trade is worth more than the 1st, but Schneids isn't going anywhere, so no to either.
