He deserves to start every game of the playoffs even if Cory gets healthy.
Here's why;
1. He has played great in each of the first two games.
2. He will be more game-ready than Schneider, who has missed considerable time
3. He has a way better track record and more experience than Schneider in the playoffs
4. He is our healthiest goalie
5. He stepped in for the last 2 games of the season with chances to finish the season with wins but coaches and teammates hung him out to dry. He deserves some respect.
6. He has dealt with a lot off the ice this year out of his control at the hands of management. He deserves the respect in his last go with the Nucks. If the ship sinks, let our former captain go down with it at the helm, not on the bench. We can burn into our memories his class, and his talent as we watch him make ridiculous saves all the way to another post-season crumble from factors beyond his control. (no scoring)
7. Most importantly, He gives us the best chance of winning.

No he doesn't.

Schneider played better when he had to carry his share of the team. Atleast Kesler scored, when Schneider had to carry his part of the team he went 1-0 2-1

5. He let in 16 goals in 4 games, you want that goalie?

Exactly. How do you pull Lu for Schneider after his performances in Games 1 and 2? You can't
I still think it was a crime to put Schneider in last year in the LA series after we lost a couple that weren't Lu's fault. Probably a huge part of why Lu wanted out of Van. Who can blame him? He was playing great.

It's the length more than the price. Luongo is only 1.3M more than Schneider. Hardly a price difference for just an age.

Schneider may not even travel with the Canucks. We ride Luongo for the series, unless if he blows it and Schneider's ready.

1.3 million is alot with the cap going down, and Schneider is better goalie so obviously we should get rid of Luongo because he is not the best.

I will guarantee you that we would win with Schneider in net. You could say this is "luongos team" for the last few years but this year it is SCHNEIDERS TEAM. Luongo had 893 save percentage the first game, although he made some phenomenal saves that game he shouldn't let in 3 goals especially the couture wrister. It's just that thing with luongo letting in that untimely goal in 3rd sucking the life of the team which bothers me.

Honestly, it doesn't matter who is in net for us. The players in front have to wake up because we aren't going anywhere with a pathetic defensive game.

San Jose didn't have that many shots, but oh boy they had so many great opportunities, especially in the first half of the game, and salted this one away on a 2-on-1. In terms of quality, the Sharks had far better chances than the Canucks, but Luongo was the difference.

That being said it honestly doesn't matter who's in net - we're going to lose if we have one guy out of 18 scoring goals.

He won't be here next year. We just can't afford both of them with the cap going down. Although we are better off keeping both goalies and replacing Edler with one of these:

You saw him crap the bed again? Ok that is all I needed to hear.

So when Jimmy Howard crapped the bed a few nights ago letting in 4 goals, most of them at the worst of times, he still won the game. Why? Because his OFFENSE bailed him out. Look at the Pens-Philly series last year. The only reason the Flyers won was because they could score. It seems like we can't.

They couldn't score against a 40 year old Brodeur and got bounced in the 2nd round.

1.3 Mill not an enourmous sum. Wait a year until Schneiders contract is up, you may wish you still had Luongos contract of 5,3....

Agreed and if he got the kind of protection the Blues, LA and Boston give their net minders we wouldn't be 2 down. 2011 all over again.

Fans like you are the reason why I hate coming on this board. It's not Luongo's fault that we lost tonight. Sure, he may have wished he had one or two goals back these past two games but honestly could you blame him? If our team can't even score more than 3 goals a night, then not even Schneider can save this team. Let's review the goals now shall we?


Couture goal: Beautiful shot. On the powerplay. Through several bodies. Nothing Luongo could've done except go into butterfly and hopefully hit him.
Boyle goal: Luongo was taken out of the play. Nothing on his part. Just a mental defensive breakdown.
Marleau goal: Hamhuis was caught watching the puck and when he tried to block the shot, it went off his foot and into the net. Had it not gone off Hamhuis, Luongo woulda had that but because it changed direction and the puck's speed and momentum slowed down, it went off Hamhuis' shin guard and into the corner of the net. Nothing Luongo could've done.

If anything, all 3 of these goals weren't Luongo's fault. Our team couldn't score. Our defense was having mental breakdowns and having sloppy outbreaks. Too much hesitation with our forwards like Henrik and Raymond hanging onto the puck instead of shooting it right away.


Thornton goal: Jam play. 1 on 2 in front of our net. Edler can only handle so many sticks in front of him and unfortunately, Luongo wasn't there quick enough to stop the puck. Again, another defensive breakdown and our team being slow as usual didn't take their man and wasn't fast to the puck.
Marleau goal: Luongo couldn't squeeze the puck enough and Marleau was the quicker skater to the puck to tap it in.
Torres goal: Blocked shot from Burns at one end leads to a 2 on 1 and Burns makes a slick pass to Torres for an easy tap in. All Luongo could do there was to get across as soon as possible and hope that Torres slid it on the ice instead of roofing it but it went top shelf.


SO really, if you break it down, Luongo can only be "blamed", and I quote, BLAMED, for only one, maybe two goals. The rest were just our players not doing their jobs and not scoring enough to bail him out.

if one steps back, and looks at his numbers since the last time he won they are absolutely horrid.

He hasn't won a playoff game in 2 years now.

He was not even close to the reason we lost, in the LA series, or this series.

The black and white, cold, hard, reality is, he has lost 5 playoff games in a row, with this 3 spot being his best performance.

The reason this man got a 60M contract is because he was freakishly, insanely, dominant.

His numbers and 0 wins the last 2 years say otherwise, that is not debatable.

Believe me I am cheering him on cause right now, he is our only hope.

And for us to win this series he needs to get his save% above 900 and GAA below 3 at the very least. Because we can't score!!

We all know he is way better than that, we just haven't seen it in a long long time.

If Cory is 100% healthy believe me he will play.

Lou has been fine, but I dont get how his absurdly loyal fan base thinks its his series and his team all of a sudden again. I know his fanbase is holding onto this dream he takes us to the cup and schneider gets traded....but we are down 2 games, not his fault at all, but that does not make it his series, he is likely gone this summer and cory carried the lions share most of the season to get us in the 3rd seed spot into playoffs. If our number 1 and team mvp is fine, he will likely play. If he is not healthy or even a question mark, lou will continue to play and he will also be a good option.


Now if lou had won tonight, I would say no way would av change anything.

Schneider only has 1 year left on his $4 million contract until he's a ufa. Probably will ask 6.5-7 if he continues to progress

And in two seasons when CS's contract must be renewed, he is going to walk because he will want more than RL money.
