If the canucks can be a better team by trading schneider than lou I have no doubt they will consider it
There are teams with major question marks in goal that may emerge into the next season
Burke does have a gun to his head with arguably the worst goalies in the nhl. He is well into the rebuild and under pressure that Gillis is simply not facing.
Every day that gillis waits is another day he gets to keep the best tandem in the league in place. A tandem that won btb pt's.
All signs point to Gillis being in the driver's seat with a nice problem to have that a younger goalie may have surpassed the best goalie in team history while said goalie is still in his prime.
I see no need for a panic moves. If they gt good value they will move Lou. If not they will wait.
Seems pretty damn obvious to me.
I doubt that lasts.
Luongo has been the go to guy at every level. I really can't see him just accepting being a 1B or a # 2.
