If he's truly your "franchise" player then why is there discussion about him being traded?

It's clear that he's not, Or Schneider would have been moved before they re-signed him. It's quite clear that the management and coaching staff have chosen Schneider over him, And there no greater example of this then Luongo not playing against L.A in the 2 elimination games in the playoffs this past spring.

Not really, If you could be potentially $10 million over the cap still.

I'm sure He'll love that. 33 years old and watching half the time. This a guy who usually plays 65+ games a year.

Even paying a portion of his salary with that much term and money wouldn't make a huge difference when concerning his value. I'm pretty sure the whole point of trading him is moving the money else where.

Well if you want to send him to a divisional rival or a team that has emerged has your #1 rival, Then be my guess. Also, I can't see them having the appetite to send what some Vancouver fans are asking for inside their own division or conference.

I was being fascias.

Also Columbus?!? Where did they come from? That doesn't work for a many reasons.
