I'm already looking ahead to the Chicago game... It's really not fun playing Minnesota this many times.

Any confirmation on who's starting? I'd normally assume it'd be Luongo, given that Schneider played last game, but they are playing in Minnesota. As odd as it sounds, I'd much rather have Luongo try to get back on track against Chicago instead of playing in Minny as he's been absolutely terrible in Minnesota for a while now (not that Schneider has necessarily been great there either).

Yeah AV, stick to Schneids for this one. Hope the lines get put back together a little this game. Notably Raymond back to line 4 and one of Burrows, Kass or Hansen with the Sedins. Even more importantly, PUT BIEKSA WITH HAMHUIS. The rest doesn't matter as much.

Actually I want them to keep Luongo and I do think hes the better goaltender overall. Currently he is not. Ive always been a fan of playing the hot goaltender, not playing a goaltender because he gets paid more or because hes earned it from having good past years, etc

I want the best chance to win tomorrow.

I don't care what the reason is, we have been winning with Schneider in net, that's all that effing matters

And you criticizing people and saying it's annoying when people are hoping for the goaltender who has been playing better recently is ridiculous.

Sounds as if YOU are the one trying to spark the tiresome debate

From Feb 9th.

Luongo’s lifetime record in Minny is 3-9-1. He has a 3.56 GAA and an .873 save percentage.

Best chance to win tomorrow is to go with Schnu sir.

that argument is garbage. please,tell me which goalie doesnt have bad streaks here and there. luongo had incredibly longs streaks when he was lights out,even when the team was not even playing.he stole a whole bunch of games, but doing that is not sustainable when you have no support. hes also played alot of games. when he was a brick wall,all these haters went into hiding. a few mediocre games they decide to come back in full force. just a bunch of phonies who like to join in on whatever trend is going.

so what youre saying is , people went into hiding when luongo was playing well? lol hm i wonder why they didn't criticize him when playing well. lol hm i wonder why they only call for schneider when luongo is playing badly. hmmmmmmm maybe play schneider when luongo isn't playing well and play luongo more when he is... its so crazy that it just might work. LOL

and maybe those fans criticize luongo because they dont like his up and down game and meltdowns in big playoff games and have a shorter leash for him? if so, its well deserved. people aren't going to be blind homers and accept lousy play. are they harder on someone who they expect more of, yes. if you dont understand peoples reasoning for any of this, you are completely clueless. i dont even agree and i find myself backing them up because the people who think they are just trolling or dont know what theyre talking about are just as annoying because i understand completely. though i choose the glass half full and think we can still win with his shortcomings because other goaltenders have shortcomings too. i just prefer to sit here and hope the coach knows when to go with another goaltender incase its not his night. and before the game is out of reach

i rather keep luongo than schneider because you know he'll give you a chance every year but even i can admit unlike most luongo fans, that he does infact meltdown. luongo doesn't rely on his quick reaction skills (hes got a crap glove hand), he doesn't rely on being quick on his feet, his lateral movement blows, he doesn't have good puck handling skills. what hes good at, is reading the plays and cutting down angles and covering alot of the net. he works off his d and his game depends on the d playing their game. if they dont play their game perfectly. hes typically pretty screwed.

schneider plays his game, no matter what. sometimes its not quite as good but still good enough to win like the columbus game, but in the end, you know you'll get a certain level of play that doesn't depend so much on how the D play

maybe canuck fans feel more confident with that than a player who melts down with the D, over and over.

fans get on peoples cases for a reason, fans didn't make up this stuff. fans get on him when he plays poorly, fans give him a short leash because hes earned that short leash. the masses wouldn't think this if it weren't some truth to it.

Alternative activities likely to be more exciting than watching this game.

Watching grass grow:

Difference is that Mason catches with his right, which meant last game's move was low glove side instead of low blocker as it was with Rinne.
