Winnipeg desperately needs a #1 goaltender, they're getting shelled night-in-night-out with Al Montoya and Pavelec. Surprise surprise this team is one of the deepest in the league at center, something the Canucks desperately need, even with Kesler back.

Schneider to WIN for Montoya and Antropov


Canucks have Luongo playing amazingly again, he's top-5 in GAA and Save % in the league and he's reclaimed his #1 spot while Winnipeg are in a bit of a rebuild with young defencemen, Scheifle and Burmistrov up front so Schneider would fit in perfectly with their future plans and match their primes.

Meanwhile, the Jets are stacked at center with Jokinen, Scheifle, Antropov and Little amongst others - essentially 4 centers who could play in the top-6.

Antropov is a huge 6'6" centerman who has been scoring well over 0.5 points per game over the last few seasons and his game and size would be great for the playoffs. The Canucks need size and skill like this down the middle, which is exactly what Antropov brings. Also, Montoya is 27, hasn't had plenty of success but would be a great backup for Luongo.

You win Cups with quality defence, a solid goaltender and depth at center. Boston won the Cup with 7 centermen in their lineup, LA with 6 and right now we have just 4 NHL centers. Antropov gives us 5:

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian
Burrows - Kesler - Booth
Raymond - Antropov - Hansen
Higgins - Malhotra - Lapierre

Fantastic depth at center and each line has a big body which is how the Kings won the Cup (Kopitar, Penner, King, Nolan). Now Antropov gives us that same size advantage right throughout the lineup.

A win-win trade. Of course you Luongo haters will suggest Lu instead, and of course we could take Brian Little instead but Schneider for Montoya and Antropov makes sense for everyone.

Don't get ahead of yourself, we are fine with two elite goaltenders on our team for this season.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

:lol:

Absolutely horrendous return, not even fair value for Luongo IMO, let alone Schneider.

And the last thing they need is another young goalie, Pavelec is perfect capable, their issues are defense and discipline not goaltending. one bad game doesn't make them suddenly in need of a goalie.

Antropov is an overpaid 2nd/3rd liner, and Montoya is just an average back-up goalie.
We could get sooo much more than that for Schneider...

No thanks, not for Schneider.

We'd probably already been offered deals similar to that for Schneider, and Antropov is ok but makes $4M, is 32, and has already been dropped by the Leafs. He's also been accused of being defensively irresponsible, and has had stretches of disappearing offensively. 35 points last year and 41 the year before.

Montoya isn't near enough to make that palatable when we give up Schneider.

For comparison, people were previously talking about going after Kane or some similar significant piece if we traded Schneider to them. Not that it'd be even value, but certainly much closer than what you're proposing.

FBDO: Oh?
MG: So I propose the following deal: Cory Schneider for Montoya and Antropov.
FBDO: It will be tough trading away the player that scored the first goal for the Jets, but I can't reject this offer.

For Schnieder you hit a homerun. Not a 3rd line center and backup goalie.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

Anyone think the Jets would do a Burmistrov/Bogosian for Schneider straight up trade?

I mean, Pavelec is already a good goalie. I just think another D should be added in Winnipeg to complement a well-rounded, defensive lineup for the Jets. I mean, they already have Byfuglien and Enstrom.

You can't really blame Winnipeg's goalies for it all. Their defence doesn't show up to games either.

Winnipeg is going to run with Pavelec whether anyone likes it or not. And that is a completely garbage return for Schneider. We should be asking for someone like Blake Wheeler or Kane. Or Burmistrov/Scheifele+. Antropov is older, slower and done.

I've noticed a lot of overpayments and underpayments on these boards, and you'd be surprised what you will and won't get in trades. Maybe Winnipeg throw in a decent prospect or high pick, but you're not going to get a whole lot for either Schneider or Luongo. 1 top-6 forward, a backup goalie and a good prospect or pick is about right. Besides, Schneider isn't exactly a proven goaltender so there's the element of uncertainty and unpredictability that plays into a trade.

Oh and yes Winnipeg need a goaltender. Pavelec is not exactly a full time starter, he's had very average stats all his career. I don't see this team changing up their defence considering they have one of the best top-4's in the league with Enstrom, Byfuglien and co.
