My team sucks in net RIGHT NOW, but I'm going to worry about the possibility that in five years the contract might be problematic. ????? Never mind that the player with said contract is playing extremely well, and goalies of his caliber tend to play into their late 30's.

Have to say I don't go along with this line of reasoning.

As a Canucks fan, I would be satisfied with keeping Luongo and his contract if we were to get proper value in return for Schneider.

Whoever ends up getting Luongo on his current contract, is going to be very pleased with player. Previously, I kind of wanted TO to pick him up because I felt it would be nice to see them as a viable threat in the East ... but after visiting many of these threads, I'll be more than happy to see him succeed elsewhere.
