I understand it's a shortened season and all, but for god's sake, how do you expect him to learn the grind of a No.1 goaltender's workload in the NHL when you bench him every other game (and in this case, for 2 straight games) - this entire goalie situation in Vancouver is a freaking mess.

For those of you that are using the "showcasing" Luongo argument...he's been in this league forever, what is 1 or 2 more games going to tell ANY General Manager interested in acquiring Luongo more than they already know about him? Not to mention, anything he does in the regular season doesn't matter anyways. It's widely known he's still a top 5 - 10 goaltender in this league, it's the fit in Vancouver and the contract which is causing the issue right now.

That's just ridiculous. We're saving Schneider for the Blackhawks? Don't we have a day between games?

Cory Schneider is FULLY capable of playing regularly - why are the Canucks treating him as though he's fragile?
They are playing Luongo, don't think it has anything to do with showcasing anybody, or anybody being fragile.

They've got two good goalies, there is no reason for a 3/1 game ration. Hope to see them both around 20 games. 28 starts for Cory, 20 for Lu.

The only people this bothers are a few fans and all the media.
