It's a mess right now. Not to mention, Cory was brutal in our first game but has been better ever since.

TSN.ca: Luongo is hot (0-0-2, 1.85, .933 in last 2 GPI).

TSN.ca: Schneider is hot (2-1-0, 1.95, .935 in last 3 GPI).

How has Luongo been so much better than Schneider that he should start 2 games in a row when Schneider was touted as the #1 all summer long, by the Canucks themselves?

The goalie situation is a mess.
You are making such a huge deal out of nothing.

Schneider was playing well, then there was a back-to-back game so Luongo started.
Luongo played very well, so he earned a second straight start.

It's a shortened season, so wins are going to be much more valuable as the standings will be closer.
Not starting the guy who just had a great game would be idiotic.

Schneider will be starting a game again in the near future. He's not the permanent backup.
