Look at Brodeur at the Olympics. He was pissed and upset about having the blame (more rightfully) placed on him for the US game by being replaced. He said he couldn't even enjoy the win much after that. That's the mentality of guys who have been established starters for as long as these guys have.

Like I said, what's done is done and Schneider is the guy now. I hope to heck he succeeds.
To be honest, I don't think he is. AV has said "Luongo is our guy" and I believe him. AV knows his job is on the line, he and Luongo have run the gamut together and I think if AV is going to go down he'll go down with Luongo as his goalie.
