All I know is goaltending is not the problem because Lou has been outstanding keeping us in the games early making amazing saves for us to even have a chance

Do you even watch the games or do you just look at the stats after each game?

Luongo is leaving because is overpriced. So much for so little, with salary cap going down, you want to keep Schneider.

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

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

Luongo is playing like a real team player, I have a feeling he will be our goaltender for this series, maybe even further, but I doubt he will be here next year.

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.

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.

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.

There's not really an argument against this

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.

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.
