Let's get real Luongo is not the backup. He has started 5 games already and Schneider has started 4.
Lol. All the Lou lovers praying their bromance is not over but it is.
Folks accept the fact Lou is being traded once the right deal comes, and given his terrific start it wl come.
Most who suggest Schnieds will be the man understand something you people dont, asset management.
Yes Lou has played well but the issue of his trade has nothing to do with the regular season lads, it's everything to do with inconsistency in the playoffs.
Most elite goalies (border, hasek, Roy) were all able to raise their games in the playoffs.
Fact 1: if you look at Lou's save % average over his regular season career it matches up close to those names above.
Fact 2: if you look at his playoff save %, it has only been better than his regular season average save % ONCE in his career as a Canuck, and that was year 1.
Fact 3: in two of the last three playoffs his save % has been below .900 ( ie in the 800's).
Those are the reasons and FACTS behind why he will be moved. His play is only upping his value which helps the team.
Time to accept fact, asset management strategy, and reality. You folks are in a drug induced state of denial.
