I know you guys hate all things Canucks but Luongo pretty much begs to play every game, his hyper competitiveness is almost a detriment, which is why it's been a struggle to get him to embrace a more Tim Thomas level of games started. The only reason there was any talk of Luongo playing this game was because it is Boston, any other team and Schneider is a no brainer to start.
Well then shame on Alain for making that call. If it's just another game in January, let your #1 try and exercise his demons in an atmosphere that is NOT the pressure cooker that is the SCF.

Your #1 wants the ball in a situation with great personal significance? You give him the ball. Rick Vaughn wanted Parkman in Major League II, and it was Parkman that Rick Vaughn got.
