After the first two games do Canuck fans still want Luongo traded or make them compete for starts? As an Oiler fan I'm torn on this. On one hand I'd love to see Luongo get traded and then see Schneider **** the bed but the Canucks would obviously be getting some valuable assets back to address current weakness' on the roster. If he stays they could both play lights out all year...... Tough call personally.
Schneider won't **** the bed, I can guarantee you that. If we're basing year long performance on one game, I guess someone should take back Lundqvist's Vezina as he's been absolutely atrocious numbers wise the first two games.

Schneider is as good as his numbers show. He is the most athletically able goalie after Quick, and the most technically sound after Price. That's why Luongo will get moved anyhow, but I'd prefer it in the off season because I honestly think Washington might mail it in and trade for him in the summer.

Nice post but....pointless. I said I'd love to see it, just like I'm sure you'd love to see RNH, and Schultz fail. Thats what opposing fans do

But we aren't discussing the Oil replacing a player with either of those 2.

And actually, I just like seeing the Oilers fail. It isn't player specific. My issue though has been with HOW WELL they have failed.

But yeah, Kassian *totally* lost that fight, guys.
Its unfortunate, but I think Kassian just ended Eager's career that night. He's been diagnosed with yet another concussion.... at this stage in his career, just retire already.
