what if the canucks actually won the cup this year with luongo just sitting on the bench for the the entire playoffs!...wonder if he would really feel great about winning a cup that way.....if i was him, i would be choked about not being traded to a team where he can be the starting goalie, even though i know we will be grateful to still have him when he bails us out again...im more confident having both goalies in the playoffs...hopefully they both can share the load.


Remember Detroits situation in 08 with Hasek and Osgood? Well this year I have a feeling Schneider will be our Hasek and Luongo will be our Osgood.

As you can see, Luongo is #1 while Schneider is #35-so play Schneider 2/12 games as we have to get our #1 ready for the post season

I think after today Luongo will be on fire.. He knows if he wants out of here and go to a place where he can be starter then he has to let his play do the talking.. there is too much emphasis given to his contract and if he can show he's lights out, not just now but when it matters, then GMs will have no excuse but to pay and take him on their team.

Agreed this situation has gone wrong MG needs to go. I think Lou has been humbled and is no longer that cocky a hole that he was, he has handled this with class.

I still think he needs to be the one traded but with him the best.


You totally make sense. But the guy who you quoted I'm glad he's not gm. Who runs a team or a business based on emotions? Who keeps a goalie based on his interview was so great blah blah or his twitter so funny. i Guess everyone forgot lu is the one say its time to move on after last year. He obviously wants to move on bad why he was so emotional to even bad mouthed his contract publicly.

You ever think it would be so easy for Cory to ask to be moved on? Knowing it be so easy for him to be traded as his salary would make him attractive? But Cory wants to stay here even though he's an American

yes let's over play schneider down the stretch and have him start 10-12 of the last 13 games so he technically played 20+ games in less than 1.5 months in a compressed season where he also played oversea.. so he's nice and fatigue to start the playoff good strategy. Schneider even though as a backup played in aprx 1 out of every 4 games. yet Luongo is not even worthy as a backup and should only play once every 10-12 games.

Huh who says to over play Cory? I'm sure AV just trying win games by getting one of the goalies going and Lu will get an opportunity to run with the ball when Cory drops it

AV was playing the goalie who won last lately - that was his idea. Luongo really should have played the back-to-back but AV gave them both to Schneider and fair enough - he won them both. Then after Schneider gets pulled for 2 goals, Luongo stands on his head, makes some highlight reel saves (that will probably end up in the season's top-10) and doesn't get to play the next night. Instead, Schneider lets in 3 goals in quick succsession again and loses his 2nd straight.

Luongo isn't getting a fair chance, and now that AV knows he's not going anywhere he has to manage his goalies better. Schneider played 6 good games, well done, but he's lost the last 2 in a row which means Luongo should start.

I'd like to see AV try this in the playoffs. 2 losses in a row and the other guy gets a chance in net. That way, the only way we get booted out of the playoffs is if both our goalies suck at the same time. This season, that hasn't happened very often.

Look there's no turning back now. They've made the choice to go with Cory, you stick with it. I think Luo gets around 4 of the remaining games but this notion you go with him and see if he can go on a run is just wrong. He is the backup now, he acknowledges this. It is what it is. Luongo desperately wants to be the guy somewhere, its just not going to be here. Cory is on a roll, I think its highly unlikely you see the goaltenders swap games in the playoffs barring a complete collapse.

Lol guess you missed the 2 quick goals Lu let in, I don't think those 4 goals were solely Lu or Cory's fault guess u didnt see hamuis getting caught up ice on first goal. You are too bias to even take seriously. They had an off night plus with the injuries they need to play airtight hockey n the past games defensively they were horrible. You can't expect a goalie to bail you out every single time. Cory stopped 22 shots before he let the 3 quick goals. You guys are too hard to please or your bias is clouding your judgement

One of them needs to be the number one they picked Cory so they going to run with it plus Cory has been winning them games. It's better than play one game or two n keep switching neither goalie will be in a groove. I'm sure when Cory has a really bad game and Lu starts wining games than av will run with Lu for awhile til he drops the ball. Lu is not a backup goalie where one would be afraid to play with him. I wouldn't be upset if Lu played 5 in a row n won all 5 games
