Opportunity for a trade with Vancouver

with Roberto Luongo already out, Vancouver lost Curtis Sanford tonight as well.

Would one of our goalers generate anything significant in a trade with the nucks?

is there anything specific you would want?

Oh wow, this is intriguing. Canucks don't have any decent prospects in the minors? At least as a stop gap till Luongo's back.

I would ask for Mathias Ohlund in exchange for Halak, straight up, since you're desperate

I'm starting to wonder if HFBoards is recursive.

If Sanford is out for any amount of time, Cory Schneider will be more than capable of filling in. Luongo is also skating again so he could be back a lot sooner than originally expected.

I hope you're talking about trading Marc Denis.

no, Luongo is with the team now, and he was at practice today with the whole gear on. Did not take any shots but he is closer to return, not surprised if he is back sooner than later. Meanwhile give a chance to Corey and see how plays in NHL (I am a bick fan of him)

That is still to be seen if Scheider can fill in.

Luongo will be out at least a month. For a goaltender groin injuries are important to be healed completely

I don't see how they would be taking less of a risk to go after Halak to fill in. Pretty much the same uncertainty.

Schneider is more than capable to be a regular starter, sanford is a decent back-up. No thx from Mtl either, halak stays.

I watched Schnedeir against the Flames on saturday and tonight against the blue jackets and i cant say i was impressed. He is often out of position or chaleenging the shooter to aggressively,it work in the AHL where players have less skills and speed but it does'nt work in the big league, but then again he only has 2 games played

I dont see what could we do with them.

Trade Halak? So will we have Denis as our back up and if Price is injured, Denis and Desjardins will be our goalies?

I would consider to trade Halak at the deadline but its way too risky to trade him now that early in the season.

I wouldn't trade halak period, he's under contract, he hasn't said a word about ice time. He's a good team player, why trade him while he's under contract at a good price?

About cory, bob mckenzie said he's 'as good as or almost as good as carey price'...'a potential franchise goalie' they say. Dominated the AHL apparently, I don't see why vancouver would make this move foolishly. Then know luongo will be back and play the majority of the games, having Cory, Jaro, Curtis and luongo isn't gonna do them any good, especially at the expense of an ohlund or something we can actually use.

Cory Schneider isn't going to get much better facing AHL shooters, he's got primacy over any idea of trading for another goalie. They may make a move for an extra depth goaler depending on Sanford's back.

Yeah and then Denis will get shot in a nightclub a week after that Desjardins will break his leg in a go kart crash. Then Robert Mayer would fall of his house and break both arms, then the big guy in the OHL will be cut in 2 and we will have our 2 goalies.

Luongo was already back in training yesterday,probably 2-3 weeks away.Canucks won't trade anything important for a 2-3 week period and also if you think Gainey is going to make a move let's keep dreaming

Schneider >>> Halak

Bob McKenzie even went so far as putting him in Price's stratosphere when it comes to potential.

He only was on the ice for a light skate *in full equipment* Monday and this morning. He didn't take part in any drills and he didn't face any shots. So I don't think Nuck fans will be seeing him in their line up until early January.

They have arguably the best goaltending prospect in the world.

One quarterback. One goalie.

There goes Bob McKenzie's credibility.

Then we are only one more freak injury away from having Loic Lacasse in Mtl.

What are the chances? That's only 2 injured players. Our #1 and maybe our backup.

Stuff like that never happens.

Just look at the Canucks.

They lost their #1.

And now their backup. D'oh!

Hmm. How about we keep Halak. If Price gets injured, our backup can still play like a #1 goalie.

And this time gives the Canucks a good opportunity to evaluate Schneider.
