I don't know why people discount distraction as a possibility. Worst case is Lou plays better and Vancouver goalie of the now and future is replaced by a still great but aging goalie who is owed a lot of money. Then there is confidence issues, trade demand rumors etc. not a good situation. Then there is the cap thing for next year. If Van NEEDS Lou this year, trading him next year when they are between a rock and a hard place with the cap and another year older for Lou, well "fair value" is going to be a distant memory. God help Vancouver if they both somehow suck. It would be a worst case but immensely funny.

We all know it's only one game and the Canucks will sort themselves out. Obviously Toronto and Vancouver are at opposite ends of the spectrum. But one must admit, it is funny.

Schneider's been hearing from the media for months all about how he was the new starter, and Vancouver has an intense media market. He knew how important it was to have a good start and that he'd be under the microscope. He's a young goalie with not a lot of games under his belt. I think they threw him to the wolves a bit too soon.

No I don't think it was bad defensive play that led to the big Ducks lead, Schneider has just let in goals that he should have stopped.

Vancouver is going to need to add to that for us to take on those contracts.

You are getting wreaked by the 6th worst team from last year, maybe you should talk less?

How do you know they will "sort themselves out"? These are the things that happen when you have a situation like this. Maybe it is one bad game, but no one knows and this is just fuel for a fire that will get worse should the goalies string together a few bad games

A great start is much different this year. Much different. Oh and we all know that nothing changes year over year. If it happens once, it must mean it will never change.

Only one game and all, but man...talk about the worst case scenario right out of the hopper for Vancouver.

Kadri and Bozak have a great game (whom incidentally are the rumored pieces in the luongo trade), Scrivens posts a .955sv% in his opening night and Schneider can't stop a beach ball during his first game as the starter and gets pulled.

Wow, just wow, I cant even write stuff this good.

Gillis, welcome to the media frenzy that you created. I bet there's going to be dozens of news articles now about this. So much for having no distractions.

This is what you get when there is a goalie controversy. Over analysis by the media which will be getting worse unless they play like the dynamic duo

Its pretty funny. As much as people blame the media for all the worlds ills its actually the medias customers that are to "blame". Just take a look at the posts you see on HF.

No. The point is that the best tenders get ventilated from time to time. Completely normal.

Yup, the newspapers, radio stations and "water cooler" chatter tomorrow is going to be exactly what Gillis doesn't want, about his goaltending situation.

Should have solved it when he had the chance. He better hope Schneider pulls up his socks. A few more stinkers and the pressure to do something will become unreal.
