Schneider has been an elite netminder at every level he's played at, the NHL included. I have no reservations about moving Luongo and letting this guy run with the starting job. That should tell you something considering Roberto Luongo is the best goaltender in the Canucks 41 year history and has backstoped the team to a cup finals appearance and back to back Presidents trophies.

Never mind the fact Quick plays in a much much more conservative defensive system and faces fewer quality chances against on a nightly basis. The Canucks play a run and gun style with probably the most active defense in the NHL. Schneider's numbers in this environment are off the charts...

Don't hold your breathe if you're waiting for this guy to crumble with a larger workload.
If Schneider is as good as quick, then why he didnt make a difference and allow Vancouver to overcome LA in the playoff.

Are you saying Vancouver upfront was a inferior team to LA ?
