Lu doesn't have to prove ****, and giving the media something to feast on would be a bad idea. Schneider's been good, Lu's played a lot lately. Schuu's parents and family will be there, I'd think it was a dick move to not let him start on a regular season game.
The media is going to criticize the goalie choice no matter who starts. If it's Luongo, it'll be what you mentioned. If Schneider gets the start they'll say the Canucks are trying to protect Luongo's fragile confidence in Bahston.
