Meanwhile, trade Schneider who will fetch a FAR better return because of his age, contract, and upside, try and win NOW. Eddie Lack is by all means capable of becoming a legit NHL backup and maybe more and hes still young.

The Sedins wont be able to carry Vancouver forever - and Kesler "could" be another major offseason surgery away from never returning to that 2011 playoff beast form (see Wendell Clarks premature aging because of playing like a tazmanian devil).

If a great return was out there for Schneider id trade him. Keep Lou, get a top 6 winger and a 1st for Schneider, use the cap-space to flip that pick for a need at the trade deadline, and go all in for a cup.

The Northwest division isnt going to be the small-bus of the NHL much longer. Canucks have a window of 2 years to seal the deal before Edmonton ****-chokes that division for a decade.
I think the Luongo ship has already sailed. There's been enough said publicly at this point to know that Luongo's time in Vancouver is nearing an end.
