Vancouver isn't the one that decided to oust Luongo, it was Luongo who said (speculative paraphrasing): "If you sit me on the bench when it matters most, I think it's time that I move to a new team."

Luongo doesn't want to play second-fiddle to anyone. Can't blame him for that. Schneider is a good goalie, and Vancouver knows better than anyone if they can rely on him. I think that the high asking price by Gillis is an admission that they feel they still need Luongo.

Either way they need to bring a solid back-up goaltender back, one who can potentially be a No.1 should the need arise. I think Scrivens makes the most sense for our organization and the Canucks.
