The guys who want the Canucks to acquire impact players (top 6 winger, RH defenseman who presumably isn't replacement-level, etc.) what exactly do you think they're going to give up? The Canucks can't afford anything like this, even if they were to give up their 1st rounder or a goalie.

That's the other thing a goalie trade (whether Luongo or Schneider) is not going to bring a lot back in real assets, especially during the season. What contending team (who thinks a goalie is putting them over the top) is going to give up important roster players? Even in the offseason, there aren't a lot of teams in a position where upgrading their goaltending by a few percentage points is going to make a big difference.
