Neither of those things is true. Luongo lost the net because the team was playing like crap and Schneider has posted a .930 save % over the last couple seasons. Luongo's play the last couple seasons has been the best of his career and reliable enough to win back to back presidents trophies and a trip to the finals. He's being traded because he wants out, not because we want him out, like fans have any say in the matter.
I'm not going to get into a back and forth on his contract because that's been done. 6.7m is right in line with what similar goalies make and a 5.3m cap hit is icing on the cake. This chicken little idea that Luongo is going to milk every last dollar out of his contract while he sucks later in his career is not born in reality.
