I'm not sure what Schneider and his agent were thinking if they were expecting 75% of the starts with Luongo still here. In any case, I'm sure it gets resolved by the draft.
If AV had started Schneider this game, then he would have only opened the door to a controversy. Riding the hot hand, making this a pure meritocracy, is the only way to keep the dogs at bay here. This is what AV is doing. Now it's up to Schneider to _earn_ the net back. I believe he can do exactly that.
Liut states that he's pragmatic. He was also a former goaltender. I think he and Schneider have a pretty good handle on what to expect from here on out. Earn your shot, stay professional, and the situation will resolve itself naturally. Got to have some mental toughness, and Schneids has it in spades.
