Is it a good idea? He usually plays them well. Give Schneids a good rest, after a difficult week. Also a stiff test for Roberto, even if the Hawks sit some guys.

Any other lineup suggestions for last few games? I'd hope Schneids vs Ana(decide later for Edm).

Should we rest any other fwds. Just give Higgy 1 or 2 games prior to PO's? Finally, do we base roster strategy on how Minny does(they have an easy game tom, but face LA on Tues)?

...I would go back and minus that post where you challenged someone to a fight for not accepting that Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Not a chance.

Schneider played fantastic against the Wings so he'll be starting on Monday against the Hawks.

Luongo against Anaheim.


Why? There's no back to back games and Schenider is on a roll. I'd rather not give him 5 days off before the lat game of the season. Absolutely no reason to not keep him sharp. Depending on how the Ducks do against the OIlers in their next 2, this game could (unlikely) help the Canucks get the 2nd seed in the west. Not a game you wanna play your backup in.

Luongo should remain on the bench for the rest of the season.

Luongo does need a game before the playoffs start just In case Schneider is somehow injured or has a couple bad games. Schneider is our number one but I heard on the radio the other day that luongo should be put in for either Anaheim or Edmonton just so he is warmed up if he has to step in playoff time. I also heard that they don't want Schneider to play the last game of the season because of the risk of injury so they may put luongo in then or they may not, I could be wrong.

@ AVR, You might be right in this feeling. I was thinking rest for our starter, 'cos we know Schneids will be counted on heavily, come PO time. Wasn't sure he should play all 3 before season end-but if he didn't play Edm, it may be too long a break before the big games. I guess the coaches & 'tenders will talk this out thoroughly...

If Luongo has to play in the playoffs, we're screwed regardless.

I wouldn't mind seeing Luongo for 2 of the next 3 games. Extra rest of Schnieder before heading into the playoffs. I guess it doesn't really matter who is in net, both our goalie can lead us deep into the playoffs.

Going to miss having 2 amazing goaltenders...

yes because Luongo is the reason we have no offense in the playoffs. Why the hell is in the net when he should be out there shooting!!!

Plenty of time off, including 2 full days off between the Hawks and Ducks. Schneids isn't ancient, he's better off playing and staying sharp.

Schneider also deserves to play against the top 2 teams in the conference. These are the best opportunity we have to prepare for your playoffs, and we're doing a terrible job of that if we roll out the backup goalie.

I think Lou should get the last home game in Vancouver, it's not going to kill Cory to rest for one game and its a classy move to let Lou play one more game for his fans.

Gives Schneider 5 days off between games, which is too much for a hot goalie.

Dumb comment. I'm a Schneids supporter but I still can acknowledge that Lu is a great goalie. He's done a lot for this team. Show some respect.

Lu should get Ana. It will be his last game in a Canuck jersey. Show some gratitude Vancouver.
