contracts aside Luongo right now gives you the better trade value

he is established as an elite number 1 starting goalie

Schneider still needs to be left in the net to know what it means to be a starter give him 15-20 games in a row not this season obviously but next season if he is indeed the future of the Canucks goal tending

seems Gillis really went out of his way to defend Cory


The contract a player has, has a lot to do with their trade value. You cannot just ''put them aside''. Basing a players trade value with contracts aside means absolutely nothing. Schneider has more trade value.

If you wanna say Luongo is the more proven #1 goalie then that would make a lot more sense.

What did Linden say? Can't listen to it right now.


The most interesting thing he said was that based on his experience, a situation like Cory and Lu is a distraction in the room. THe other players are aware of the desire of each guy to play and see who starts and who doesn't. He doesn't believe they can hang onto both.
He said LU never expected to be back this year but now tht he is, no way would he be happy playing back-up.


Just as interesting, is listening to Cory's interview. Anyone who has worked in HR can pretty quickly tell he is not happy with the current situation though he chose his words carefully. It's interesting that he didn't even find out from AV he wasn't playing. He got to practise and heard nothing so assumed he wasn't playing until the goalie coach came and told him. Confirms my suspicions about AV and his megalomaniac personality and explains why the players in Montreal called him Mr. arrogant. Talk about a lack of sensitivity to the situation!!1

Any player?............


Well, you gotta' remember, there are players, and then there are *"PLAYERS"*.

So yeah, Gillis would trade any player.

Let me guess, you're a motivational speaker.

Whether they make $10/hr or $6million/yr, these are people and how they are treated does impact their performance.

A good coach finds the trigger for every player on his team and uses it to get the most out of them. Even hard coaches like D Sutter communicate with thier players however harsh it might be. To have no dialogue, no relationship is not an effective to get the most from anyone, Pro or not.

Your mother must have bottle fed you! You sound like you've got a bad case of "mommy doesn't love me blues".

Really? So AV is not a good coach? 2 presidents trophy and 1 game from winning the Stanley cup? That being said, AV's job is still on the line and he's got to do what he thinks gives him the best chance to win. These are professional athletes here, they are paid to perform at their highest levels whether or not their coach is sensitive to them. Look at what happened with the 49ers and Alex Smith, last I checked, the 49ers are in the Super Bowl
