This includes only one year in Vancouver, playing for lowly FLA for five years and lowly NYI for one.
It is safe to say that despite Luongo's 2.69 GAA and .917 PCT, which are really, technically slightly worse than Schneider's, that Luongo's 23,634 minutes played by the time he was 27 years old, made him the guy that carried his team.
Or explained another way, Schneider, now 27 years old, has played 27% the amount of games Luongo had played by the time he was at that age.
Schneider is 27 years old. He is not a 1G like many professed here. Sure he's good. But remember Luongo hitting his prime about three years ago. Schneider has about three or four years left of growth left and then the decline will start to start. Luongo on the other hand, has carried every team he's been on on his back and doesn't show that much of a slowing down curve. He is in the same league as the other greats that played the game. Of course, Vancouver fans are as blind as bats and could not recognize history in the making even if it played in their own rink.
Schneider got greedy, Schneider got traded, Schneider pays the price.
Lack is better than Lou and
Lou is not a big game goalie face it
