You mean like Lu did when he walked from Florida - who gave him his chance in the NHL - to sign the most lucrative contract in the NHL with Vancouver?
Lu is the only "star" on this team that didn't take a discount to play here.
Have you ever heard him refer to the fans when he talks about why he plays or who he plays for? No. He talks about his teammates and himself.
LU is a great goalie and has performed well for Vancouver and I wish him well, but don't paint him as some kind of self-sacrificing martyr for the team.
It's one thing to defend Schneider, but dumping hate on Luongo is a bit unnecessary.
Have you scavenged all of Luongo's interviews over the years to verify this claim of selfishness? Luongo has certainly shown love towards the fans and he doesn't have to do it on a nightly basis.
And I am pretty sure we traded for Luongo from FLA... and goalies go for a crap-load of money in today's NHL, so for Luongo's cap hit, I like the deal. Luongo has a passion for the game and will play as long as he can, like Brodeur.
Back to the topic..
Schneider has 4 starts, Lu has 5. It's not that drastic of a difference. Luongo and Anderson (Ottawa) have been the hottest goalies in the NHL at this point. I think Schneider will get more games under his belt and in moving forward he'll have more games down the stretch. But decisions should also be made based upon what is best for the team. If Schneider was told he'd play more, I think AV will start playing Schneider more. He's chosen against that because Luongo has been on fire and wins are what is going to get this team above .500.. I love both goalies that Vancouver has, this is the greatest position for any team to be in. Running to the media only creates issues.
Christ, Vancouver has a god damn winning streak going finally, and little stories like this are ruining it.
