If you'd want Luongo over Schneider 3 years from now because of a $1.5 million difference ... sorry, but that's nuts.

Oh, and Luongo doesn't want to be here.

There are a lot of people trying really, really hard to put lipstick on a pig right now.
Calling Schneider a Top 5 goalie is putting some lipstick on that pig too, though. He's yet to prove he can do it with the pressure on. He wasn't any good when he was anointed the #1 to start the season and he wasn't any good with the playoffs on the line.
