I understand we don't have a conventional goaltending tandem, but its been made
pretty clear that Schneider is the new #1 guy in town,
we'd better be sure we can count on him before we decide to trade away Luongo. That means he should be getting the tougher starts and being given the opportunity to bounce back after poor outings...if he stinks up tonight's game, start Luongo for a couple games and give Schneider a road start in SJ.
Schneider was poor. Luongo may not have been much better when he came it, but you have to remember that he came in when the game was over.
I don't think it is as clear as you are making it out to be.
