Gillis responded in a TSN article saying that they are not going to do any favours and give away an all-star player.

Does he not also realize that a team will be doing him a favour by giving him cap space? If nobody trades for him, Vancouver is not in great shape at all when it comes to the salary cap.

Gillis and Co made their bed when they put Schneider into the playoffs and sat Luongo. He also signed the guy to a ridiculous long contract and then decides to dump him. It doesn't matter that the cap hit is ok. The contract is way too long.

The fact is that yes they can keep both goalies, but that is not going to happen long term. One has to go. He does not have much leverage at all.

I still think it's risky throwing all of your eggs into one basket. Anything can happen. Didn't Mason win the Calder?

The goalie storyline is the most interesting thing about the Canucks for me this year. What if Schneider falters? I would keep Roberto this year just for that and then trade one of them afterwards.
