Before people complain too much, didn't Schneider start like 5 or 6 straight last season?

This situation is getting intense. Lu forced AV's hand playing so well..

Schneider can't be happy..

soon to be Twilight thread

What you did there . . . my optic nerves have converted the light energy into a signal that has been interpreted by my brain as an image.

So . . . anyone still think there isn't going to be a goalie controversy?
It's interesting/funny that a situation that AV created by sitting Lou 3 straight in the LA series is now being either exacerbated by or mitigated by AV . . . starting with a game against LA.
I think he's a little bit on the indelicate side, and seems to be publicly challenging MG in an indirect way.
This will not end well.

Cory continues to pay for his one bad start. The first game after a long layoff.

This could be a disaster. Not for the upcoming game. But for the club in general. I have confidence in Lu winning the Chicago game, but what does this do to Cory's confidence and his relationship with the Canucks? Is that really worth it? Its not as if Cory wouldn't have the same chance to win in Chicago, this is all on AV and his love of his pets.

I really really hope this is all about showcasing Lu and NOT some kind of reconsideration of who Gillis is going to trade.

Players are human. This IS a distraction for the team and has to be settled one way or the other.

Both goalies have been crystal clear tehy want to be a starter. Both are paid starter money.

MG saying he will keep both is blowing smoke and everyone knows it.

Every thread I've seen today there's been a comment by you making stupid comments like this. It's obvious you're trolling, you should just stop because based off the comments (it'd be fine if it was a few times but every thread i've read there's been a comment like this by you) I think you're an idiot now.

Luongo got a shutout, play the hot hand, we did it last year was Schneider was the backup.

You can't be that ignorant. You know the BRASS will have some say.

Plus, the guy just posted a shut out. I'd rather win games than (ie. playing your hot hand) than change things up for the sake of 'goalie controversy')

Exactly. This could damage relationship with the Canucks organization.

Either this. Or AV is SO dumb, that maybe he's the one to go. What happens if Lu melts down tomorrow against the Hawks?

Hopefully, Cory will be ready.

He's the future's goaltender. Even AV has got to see that.

And what the heck is Weise still doing up on the second line? Has he even scored a goal while he's been there?

Cory is not paying for anything. Luongo is just on top of his game. It is not about showcasing, everyone knows what Luongo is all about, its simply because he is playing solid and coming off a shutout. People act is of all of a sudden Roberto Luongo is Andrew Raycroft. Not your typical so called backup.

Schneider is not the sole number 1 yet, clearly.

Cory had a shut out vs. the Ducks? Not such a great outing vs SJ the best team in the league right now IMO.

That first game vs the Ducks, no one showed up.

Play the hot hand, show case Lu some more and get on with it. Get the W's is all that matters...especially in a short season.

Lu's history vs Chicago is deep (obviously) - more incentive to play him.
