It rarely ever works out. If you want to sit there and believe the chance for success with 2 goalies (and nearly 10 million locked in goaltending against the cap) when there are GLARING holes on this team that could be filled by trading one of them - the Canucks have come out and said it would be Luongo - then that's good for you.

But this situation is upside down and really not being handled well at all by Gillis and Alain Vigneault.

So when does Schneider learn how to be a No.1 and the workload involved? When the safety net, Luongo, has been traded? How does that make any sense?
It doesn't usually work out because teams with two starting goalies usually have none. Boston did pretty well with a goalie battle...
