When the GM has said very plainly and publicly that they are trying to deal Luongo (even that there is currently a deal in place)... and Luongo has stated publicly that he knows he is being traded... then anyone but a complete numbskull understands who the #1 goalie is.

A hint for you... it is NOT the player they have all said is NOT in their future plans....

They simply don't want to phrase Luongo as a back-up because that implies he is not as good and could affect the trade scenarios.

A good hint before you post something. When you think thousands of people are wrong, and you are right... it generally means you are wrong and/or off your meds.


That still does not mean he is not number #1 while he is STILL here. Yeah they are actively dealing him and Luongo knows and said fine, but the guy is still here, that does not mean all of a sudden he is the backup and will act like a normal backup.

When other players are on the block and they know, they don't just get demoted while they are still on the team for another player. When Luongo goes, Schneider will be number # 1 without question, until then he is not. clearly proven by the team.

Riggggggggggggght..... :picard:

Hot hand. That's all. Right now the only controversy is with fans and the flipping media.


My post was sort of tongue-in-cheek. Didn't come across right, perhaps.

As for there being no controversy...Head in Sand not Head in Hand!

How is this any different from Thomas/Rasek? young goalie vs Older goalie? both starters

Words me and my brother exchanged while at the game last night. Exact same situation. Thomas lost his job to Rask, Thomas gets it back and helpes win a Cup, Rask gets his job back.

For those of you screaming Cory Schneider is the #1 and the future:

Then why didn't Mike Gillis give Cory a No Trade Clause on his 3 year deal?

Just stirring the pot here. I still think it's more likely that Luongo will be traded than Schneider, although I am a Luongo fan.

:picard:

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.

trade Corey !

What if GM's offer a solid package for Schneider and someone else for the players we need, should MG take it? He better.

So people are upset that our 1a goalie is starting instead of our other 1a goalie? CdC strikes again. Ride the hot hand...

No my head isn't in the sand on the controversy. I am saying right now the controversy is media and fan-driven,rather than in the room. Not sure that wiill be the case if this saga continues much longer. Part of me likes to believe they could get through this shortened season without conflict between Cory, Lou and the staff. Two great goalies would help us in chasing the CUp, however 10 million bucks in net means there are some other holes not being filled.

You clearly can not let the fact go that as of right now there is no number one. There is two goalies sharing the work and one week Luo will be better and get the call. Then next week Cory may be the better goalie and, therefore, get the call. Atleast you see the number one in the future is Cory.

Yeah...and as soon as they switch numbers then we will know for certain who is number 1. :)

I am sure the conflict in the room (if there is some ) is nowhere as severe as on these boards. Still, when someone like Trevor Linden who has played under AV, played with some of these guys, and was in that room says, this is not a good situation, that Cory would not be happy and it is a distraction for the team, I have to think he knows of what he speaks.

MG is going to put as positive a face to it as he can because that is his job.

Two possible reasons Roberto is getting the start

1) aliens have abducted cory
2) Roberto is better.

Hopefully he forgives the fans that don't know Jack squat about hockey n stays.

Has anyone thought to ask Schneider which teams he would like to be traded to?

THE only people who have ousted Luongo are 12 year old cdcer's and the immensely pathetic media(nationwide now!) whohave nothing better to talk about.

Luongo is playing because his trade value isn't gonna go up by sitting on the bench.

Cory is our future but we have to show teams Luongo is in mid-season form to get more of a return.

It is posts like these that make it tough to take a lot of posters on Canuck forum seriously.

Always finding terrible justifications, blaming everything on 12 year old cdcers (though by your language you yourself seem like one) and the media.

Please show me where AV or MG said Schneider is the number 1. Oh yeah, I'm also pretty sure the media doesn't decide who the #1 is like you so ignorantly think they do.


What are you trying to agrue Federer the fact that it goes without saying that Cory going forward is our number one, or for this year there is no number one. So far it looks like a shared number one position and who ever is hot will be called upon. Atleast this looks like the case with how AV has decided on the starts. No need for the :picard: icon.

OK, shutting this down now, as it's played out and in order to move discussion to the GDT. There is also a new MG on the Team discussion in progress that will be a continuation of this topic.....
