i think, barring catastrophic injuries to both lou and schneider, there's maybe a 0.001% chance we'll see legace in a canucks uniform ever again. that said, if MG does indeed intend for him to go down to chicago and help show lack the ropes, he is a pretty decent last-ditch insurance guy to have.

say schneider gets hurt in the second half of the season and lack proves himself to be completely unready for big league play. corpse or not, as far as last ditch insurance options go, legace has stanley cup experience as a backup and wouldn't be bad to have in the locker room stall next to lou to help him psychologically if/when necessary. that's not a role that turco, leclaire, emery, or any of the other options out there can fill.
