There is no feasible situation where Luongo is retained beyond this season. None. Cap shrinking and he has made his declaration. Cory is here and getting paid like a mid-level starter. These things add up to Luongo's position here being finite.
So buyout or trade where they retain half his cap hit?

If there is no way he's still in Vancouver next year there are some pretty nasty options on how the canucks get rid of him.

There are a lot of goalies and teams not in game shape yet that have really been hurt by the lockout. Problem for the Canucks is with the Luongo trade still in question this put that much more pressure on the goalies and you dont really need that on young unproven guy like Schneider.
