Two things that only management would know that greatly affects the decision.

1) Are they willing to keep Luongo until a good deal is offered, even going into the offseason? If that's the case, ride with the hot goalie (Luongo)

2) If Luongo is almost 100% gone and the details are being worked out, then Schneider as we give him so leeway and show faith in him being our #1

I think we should play Luongo to reward the good effort, then go back to Schneider (unless Luongo plays lights out). If we can ride a hot goalie through some wins, then do it, but if Luongo is essentially gone then we need to trust Schneider.

A lot of times we had the edge in goaltending or just pure luck.

That first period Avs vs. Sharks was scary to watch from a Canucks perspective. They are speedy, they are willing to work, and they adjust their game well to the opposition.

Kings did a good job taking away time and space. The Avs showed they are capable of doing exactly that as well. We should consider ourselves extremely lucky that they're missing key players. This is no gimme by any means.

Though I see baby steps in the right direction by the Canucks, they still don't look like they're feeling good about themselves, which worries me the most. I don't know how many more games they need to actually start clicking, but they are definitely not there yet.
We're 15-0-2 over our last 17 against Colorado.

Wow, has it actually been that long? Could have sworn we'd lost in regulation more recently than that...

Schneider's numbers against Colorado are pretty unreal as well.

Gino Reda referred to it as a "blunder," so I guess that's what it was...

Sorry I got that one wrong. It's 15-0-2 in the last 17. I swear they said the other record on the team though. Either way, pretty impressive!

Our lineup last time we lost in regulation against the Avs:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Raymond-Kesler-Samuelsson
Shirokov-Wellwood-Bernier
Rypien-Johnson-Hordichuk

Mitchell-Edler
Ehrhoff-Salo
O'Brien-Bieksa

We're clearly due for a loss tomorrow.

If I'm a betting man, I'd bet Schneids is starting. Plus I remember him being lights out against the Avs last season. I think.

"Ride the hot goalie" - Take Luongo???

Schnieder was great in Anaheim, and darn good in San Jose as well, (their powerplay is godly).

Luongo, played very well against a team that doesnt/cant score very many goals.

Now everyone is back on the Luongo bandwagon and forgot how Schnieder played in his 2 games prior to lastnight.


This fanbase is so wishy-washy, rather amusing.

Just a thought here. When Kesler and Booth return I wouldn't mind rolling with this forward core.

Sedin-Sedin-Kassian
Burrows-Kesler-Hansen(Checking Line)
Booth-Schroeder-Raymod
Higgins-Lapierre-Weise/Malhotra

I don't see may weaknesses with a forward core like that.

Not enamored with the 2nd and 3rd line balance esp. given that the 4th line was unplayable against LA.

- Burr and Hansen are our best and most consistent two way forwards and should be split up. Which means Schroeder with Hansen.

- Raymond and Higgins can be on either line though Raymond might be a better fit with Burr.

- 3rd member of the Burr can try different wingers until a fit is found. Maybe Volpatti? I havent found Wiese very effective.

Yes, it's something we're actively discussing. Schroeder's been a godsend in that regard, and one reason I'm not panicking is because we go from having an anemic offense to having a stacked one when Kesler and Booth return.

That's not factoring in assets brought from a Luongo trade, but with Lu staying, our lineup looks like this:


Sedin-Sedin-Kassian
Burrows-Kesler-Hansen
Booth-Schroeder-Raymod
Higgins-Lapierre-Weise/Malhotra

Garrison-Edler
Hamhuis-Bieksa
Ballard-Tanev

Schneider
Luongo


And that's outstanding.

EDIT: And Jensen could be coming over in March, right?

No its the same fans that put roberto on a pedastal on here, he has a legion of fans that are incredibly loyal and outspoken fans on here and cdc. They like roberto, and would like schneider traded and off the team. That has not changed and its been like that since this controversy began. You can bet if schneider lost that game last night 3-2 we would not be hearing schneider should start against the avs for a great effort. (even though roberto and schneids have both played well)

With that said I would be shocked if schneider did not get the start. Although I would not make a dramatic scene on here if they did give it to roberto. Not a great sign to send your new number 1 but whatever... its av's call and roberto did play well last night.

I was never off the Luongo bandwagon. But I dont really care who starts tomorrow, having 2 goalies of this calibre is a great luxury. Just hope AV uses it well

"Everybody" isn't on anything. Wishy washy is still better than whiny, though.

Wouldn't Jensen end up burning a year of his ELC if he played?
