If Schneider doesn't win the cup we already know where the negativity will come from and how it will be fabricated. A few of the Lu only fans have been trying to force us to turn on Cory all season. It didn't work but it was amusing to watch the hypocrisy.
For most fans, one season will not make or break Schneider. Just like Lu wasn't soured on after he just got here. Not sure if you guys got to the party late, but Luongo was a well loved goalie in this town for many many years. Schneider won't be turned on so fast no matter how much you want it to happen.
The big difference that I see from most of those that want Schneider to start is because they feel he gives us the best chance to win. I personally would have had no problem if Lu suddenly returned to 2007 form and make me wrong. I don't want Cory in for some obscure wanna win on the net reason.
Yeah, nice fans. I'm a Canucks fan but I'm going hate on them because my Luongo is going to get traded.
Oh trust me dude this city will. I would never have thought the fans would turn on Luongo but they have. And you better get ready because if/when Lu goes, and Cory is kept over him, if he does not produce, he will be turned on so fast and on the team. Fans will be looking back on this move if it we still don't win the cup.
Schneider is going to be under more pressure and bigger microscope than Luongo because he is the guy that will be taking over. Remember Luongo is not retiring, he is only 34, he is going to go to another team and will give them solid goal tending and depending on the team he will give them a chance in the playoffs.
So lets see if we keep the right goalie.
Possibly but it's cheap as a supposed Canucks fan to keep insisting this will happen. This saga has been well documented. To think that people wouldn't respond better is just pessimistic in a desperate attempt to re-glorify Luongo.
