I know it's early in the season but it looks to me like Louey is rather calm and collected. With all the trade rumors and speculation buzzing around, I think its taken some much needed pressure off of his play and he's looking good! Suffice it to say, should he continue to be this way. Maybe thats all he needed to be successful. Gear down Vancouver's finest. Oh and (Knock on wood). Thoughts?

I have noticed and agree, truth told, he's not playing for as much as Schneider is. His mind is at ease as far as i'm concerned..

Ala Schneider last year..

He can play out of his love for the game now rather than the commitment to the earbuzzing media.

Which actually does miles and miles for any athlete.

The pressure of playing as a starting goaltender can do wonders on players. It wore on Luongo last season and now it's having a much bigger effect on Schneider this season.

As for playing without pressure, we saw Schneider put up great numbers last year as a backup. Now Luongo's playing loose hockey without anything to lose and he's the Vancouver Canucks' best player.

Gen hockey section? Luongo is already considered no longer a canuck, eh?

Tonight it appeared as if Luongo was the only Canuck who is driven enough to win the Cup. Starting in 2006-2007 we built the team around Luongo, I vote we do so again. You build around and complement the people who are driven to win, that's success. Schneider is great, but does he have the same drive as Luongo, he may have some, but not as much as Lou.

That was my thought. Could have just headed over to the Luongo discussion thread in that case.

He looked good. Clearly he has no nerves because no matter what he won't have to face the music, which is a good thing for his play.

Win we praise him, lose we trash him and he doesn't care cause he wont be a Canuck for much longer.

....If you watched last season there were numerous nights Lou was one of the only players to show up.

Why should Lou care if the team around him completely collapses? By the end of the year, he wont be playing here anyways. THIS is why he is calm.

He's no mug.............don't you think he knows he's the best.

He is getting to pick his trade team (almost) and I'm quite sure it will be one where not only he wants to go but one with a D that will give him some protection.

This.

All the speculation, the controversy, and even the lousy fanbase doesn't bother him anymore because he knows that he will be gone eventually.

I am already starting to miss him.

I am his biggest fan, but WTH WAS THAT? Some of his latest shootout attempts look like Grandma pushing her walker to the bingo hall. I'm a big fan of going in with speed vs crawling in.

As for Lu....it's all been said. He has nothing to lose at this point and can simply play his game without any added pressure (for the most part). He is a very talented player who was in a glaring spotlight and shouldered every win/loss...we tend to do that to players here (assess on a minute by minute basis vs an overall view of things).

Pressure????

The reason he's calm is because he signed a 12 year contract worth $64 MILLION DOLLARS.

No matter what happens, or where, that money is guaranteed.

Pressure..... LOL

That's just silly saying he's been their best player when he hasn't got a win yet, where in both games they were leading after the third. I agree he's been playing great (better than Schneider so far, but it's early) and whatever team gets him will be a lot better.

His play is raising his trade value :bigblush:

Is this finally the evidence that CDC needs to show them that the monumental collapses that have been placed solely on his shoulders...maybe, just maybe weren't all his fault? Sure he had some bad games in there too, all players do. But maybe it's actually a team sport and all those drubbings and "bad" losses weren't entirely his fault. Maybe he was the guy with his finger in the crack of the damn for those losses...?

Luongo was the best player last night for the Canucks. Was too bad the rest of the team didn't respond in the third.

Why is anyone surprised... he's been one of the best goalies in the NHL the past 6 years... he's had one or two off years but consistency wise he's been equal to lundqvist.

There's a reason he wears number one.

Lu has been playing great, I wish he could stay and take back what was his. With that said, I know he is close to not being a canuck and that makes me sad.

Pulling hard for Luongo. He had a great game last night...just the common factor in front of him and Schneider the last few games, terrible defensive coverage and lack of scoring on the PP

Don't know why anyone would be surprised by Lu having a good game. He's one of the top goalies in the regular season. The folks that want to keep Lu and trade Corey are riding the idea that Lack has a future as a #1. I have growing concerns regarding Lack's health, as he's had a very serious injury. Canata is too far off the speculate.

For me, the difference in age tips the scales between Lu and Corey. Lu will begin to decline, while Schneids is still getting better.

I have considerable respect for how Lu is handling all this. Showing a lot of class.
