I know that this might seem like a Schneider vs Luongo thread once again. But, as a fan standpoint I think it was of the best interest for the organization to keep Luongo. I've always been a supporter of Luongo throughout the years, because I know what he can bring and I also know how this organization was prior to Luongo.

Having AV start Schneider and be perceived by media and fans as our #1 goalie heading into the season was pretty key. Being a fan of this team for years and years, it is easy to see how the fans and media can dislike a goal with a few soft goals here and there and a mini slump.

Picture our team without Luongo right now. Schneider is already getting a bit of "hate" from the fans and Luongo is still here. The fans at the games, decide to begin cheering for Luongo again and the media is back on the bandwagon once again.

The main point I am trying to make here is that, we as fans need to realize what we have in our goalies and cannot solely blame loses on them. Luongo is a world class goalie and in my opinion he should be the one staying and preparing Eddie Lack for his starting role down the road.

As fans after the Mclean trade back in the 90's to the trade for Luongo in 2006, we remember the dark days for our goaltending. Be grateful for our goaltending situation right now. I'm glad that both goalies are here right now, because as fans sometimes we have a short memory.

LU is still our starter. Contrary to fans that had him pegged as being tradable for a bag-o-pucks during the last offseason.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

This was predictable.. ah well. Get your licks in on Schneider while you can cause as soon as Luongo has a bad game you know its coming the other way.

both have 4 wins each at the end of the day and both have had near the same amount of playing time

the board really hit the panic button after this loss and completely forgot about the last 6 wins

Schneids did let in a bad goal, and that last one was a sloppy play that surprisingly worked out in their favour... *sigh*

Oh well, can't win 'em all. Next game versus St. Louis, let's go with Lu and see how he does! :bigblush:

If Luongo gets a shutout next game..

Every single one of our really terrible loses have one thing in common. Schneider was in net for all of them.

Sharks, Ducks and tonight.

Fun statistic

It's coming the other way? where have you been the past few years? Luongo has been on the receiving end of so much (mostly unfair/sometimes justified) criticism these past 2 years while Cory has been getting the benefit of the doubt... and now the tables have finally turned and most of these Luongo haters are getting a taste of their own medicine... how many similar comments did you see directed towards Luongo the past couple of years?...

Don't worry about Cory, he'll bounce back, but if u think for a second that he won't go through what Luongo went through as our Starter the past few years (as far as his relationship with the fans go), then you don't really know our fans...

We all know that the Schneider fans will come and counter with Schneider's stats excluding those blowout losses :sadno:

It's one loss people! Calm down!!! Schneids is a great goalie, and we are lucky to have him and Luo as our two options in net.

AV can pick any goalie, literally due a coin toss, and either one will give us a great chance at winning. Yeah there were maybe 1 or 2 sloppy goals tonight, but every goalie has an off night. Cut the kid some slack, stop freaking out, and move on to the next game.

So frustrating to read all these stupid comments about Luo or Schneider after an off game!! Honestly, many fans don't realize just how lucky we are to have such a good team that has a good chance of winning every time they play.

And lets not make this Luo vs. Schneider

Canucks are playing as a team, they aren't pitting one goalie against another, have consistently said that they feel comfortable with either goalie in net. Why do we fans then always do these silly comparisons after each game?

I was rooting for Schnieder earlier in the season, but tonight he was downright HORRENDOUS. Id say he lost his starting spot. Thats two bad games hes played already. Luongo hasnt had one yet.

Well Schneider has not played as well as Lu this year

But played better than him last year...

Seems like the goalie with less pressure plays better

Trade Luongo and Schneider for 2 firsts and some decent prospects. It's clear that after 3 losses in regulation our team needs to rebuild.

/sarcasm? Or is it?

You can't be serious. Luongo has been raked over the coals for years for just about every little mistake. If people think this comparably tiny bit of criticism of Schneider is something you better close your eyes and plug your ears because this is nothing.

Not very well. Schneider has not looked as good ever since the starter talk. He crapped the bed his first game and the first of the season, and he's had 3 very mediocre games in a handful. He's shown a lot of negative stuff that he never really ever showed before. He didn't have slow starts, he was more consistent, and he had very little rebound problems. And it's not like you can say "He's learning, he's not use to it!" He was the backup and it's not like he's carrying the load or anything. He just has more focus on him, and he hasn't looked the same with it at all.

This is turning into the Thomas vs. Rask situation for us. Hopefully it will come to a close with us raising the cup like the bruins did.

This is what I've been saying since the beginning of the season. It's really a win-win for everyone.

However, if we were to trade a goalie, I believe it should be Schneider. Not because I think he's not a capable starter for us, but because he could get more back in a trade than Luongo could.

You do realise that Luongo was quoted as saying that he would prepare a list of teams if Management asked him to,right?
You do realise that management runs the team and makes decisions to trade or not trade their players,right?
You do realise that means that they can do whatever they like with a player that is under contract,right?
You do realise that Luo carried this team for the six years he was here and that is being exemplified here early in year seven,right?
