Now Schneider crapped the bed yesterday. We'll see what happens in game 4. But yea, I'm not disagreeing, I don't see how they can retain Lou but I felt the same way last summer so...
While I understand what you're saying, the difference is that Luongo had said that he was willing to finish the season in Vancouver if he had to this year. He has since said that he wants out, and was quite clear about it.

Kesler might also go, it really depends on what direction they take.
I would be interested to know what would be Kesler's price, but with Plekanec, Eller and Galchenyuk, I'm not sure I would bring another center into the mix.
If it's a swap between him and Plek(+), then okay, otherwise not so much.
The twins both have a NMC and the team picking them up would also have to pick-up $12.2M on their cap, while the salary cap is going down. Very limited options for the Canucks.

The price for one of those two will be outrageously high, in proportion with the demand.

Possible, but not as much because of Schneider's game 3 performance, but rather because Luongo's contract makes him difficult to trade.
