Honestly, we are already seeing a break in Schneider. I think Schneider will eventually be able to handle it - but he will face some failures and learn from mistakes as Luongo did with the media.
Luongo's learned everything he needs - he's done every wrong at every level in the playoffs with the media. Luongo is now at a place where he is finally comfortable and can do no wrong. He's finally able to handle this city.
It'll take Schneider time. Our window to win, however, is now. Why, then, stick with the younger less experienced?
Lack will come along. Goalies can always be attained through trades and signings. That's how we got Luongo. Schneider brings a long-term security, but Luongo provides the win-now opportunity.
Stick with #1. Get assets for #35. Go for the Cup.
Schneider has had it 10x worse then Luo, already in his first season. He's had to play almost perfect and any little flaw people have called him on it and begged for Luo to replace him. He's literally playing for his life each game he plays and so far he's come up successful. In all fair unless he wins a cup you can only expect 6-8 years out a goalie in a canadian market. It's too mentally draining on a person to be put in this situation.
Luongo is going. He wants to leave. Can't you see how depressed he was that he wasn't traded. It's not that he hates this city but imagining haven't a entire city watching every play and harshly judging. Luongo is like a bad relationship, one that you know isn't going to last but it's hard to say good bye.
As far as lack coming along. Seriously people enough about lack coming in and being this great #1, the guy is already 25, To say he will come in and take over when Luo retires is the dumbest thing ever. If he has so much talent why will he wait till he's 30 to finally get his shot.
