No one is saying Bo won't turn out. The facts are & you are saying it clearly as well "LET"S WAIT & SEE IN A FEW YEARS"... We traded the for sure thing for a lets wait & see player......
Plus MG miscalculated the whole Luongo thing by way over valuing him & asking way more in return for Lu then what he got for the BETTER & YOUNGER Schneider in the end........MG put the team in this desperate situation.....We should've got Bo for Lu & still had Cory plus a few mill more in cap space to boot.....
You forgot to mention the #1 fact.
We had to trade a goalie. We missed the boat on trading Luongo. Complain all you want about that.
We had to trade a goalie and we got the #9 pick in a very deep draft. No goalie in NHL history has been traded for a pick that high, let alone in a deep draft.
Luongo could never have fetched Horvat with his contract. Pre lock out or not. I strongly disagree with that assertion.
So in the end Schneider is 27 and Horvat is 18. Comparing the two right now is disingenuous.
