Wow - a lot of bending of facts here.
A few points I'd like to mention:
First, Luongo has never said he wanted out of Vancouver as far as I know. He did say that he wouldn't want to play more than this year in Vancouver, but that was with the assumption he'd be playing backup to Schneider. When he wins his games and celebrates the win with the team on the ice, I think he looks happy actually.
Schneider would probably get a better return since he has a shorter, cheaper contract and more potential to improve whereas Luongo is at his peak already.
We can't just sign a guy for a few years, tell him he will be our #1, and then end up trading him. Plus, as has been pointed out, if he plays stellar for that other team and Luongo craps the bed in the playoffs, Gillis would probably lose his job.
Eventually, Luongo will be traded and Schneider will be the starter. Simple as that.
no ever seems to answer this........so why would the Canucks want to trade Schneider then? If he's so valuable to other teams, wouldn't that value apply to the Canucks as well?
