1) He has a no trade clause.

3) The Canucks are clearly in a goaltending jam (i.e., their back-up goaltender is out-performing their starting goaltender with whom the team plays worse with, when in net)
4) The Canucks actually think he has value -- and won't just give him up for free.

Why we would not offer-sheet Schneider, who is the better goaltender, while screwing up the Canucks even more (8-9 million total on two goaltenders) and better yet, not have to give up a 1st round pick instead of trading for Luongo is really hurting my brain.

But yeah, if this organization wants to go the Montreal Canadian route a la Scott Gomez, then please, by all means continue to disappoint many fans.
