After his last 2 starts, it's going to be tough to sit Luongo.

in a fantasy scenario where he's below other high-end options, like perry

Not really considering Blackhawks are a team Luongo has struggled historically with. Really seems obvious Schneider will start. I'm sure Vigneult wanted to give Schneider time to do some research before facing hawks, they have been really good this year. Lets Schneider focus on big task, and playing Luongo against Avalanche is a sure nice way to boost his stats. I remember them doing this with another player before trading him, I think he went by Cody Hodgson.....

Really? His stats suggest otherwise...

This makes him #1 all over again LL? Cory the back up?


It's a tandem situation. Ride the hot hand. I'm unclear as to why you are reading _way_too_much_ into the situation than is warranted?

When you go to the guy in 3 straight starts....what else would you call it? I agree that you ride him....that's what i said actually. I'm not reading anything into it. I have the feeling Luongo is staying for the year...that's all.

I agree. Letting them battle it out was a wise move by Gillis, imo.

Luongo is playing calmer than he has in a long time, and when I watch him play, I feel more confident with him in net than I do Schneider. It's still too early to say what will happen, though.

If all of this has given him the drive to play like he has....Gillis should manufacture a "trade deal is done except..." rumour every week.

Luongo has looked stellar so far.

No thanks.

You'll notice i'm one of the few who don't value Schnieder higher than Luongo. That's not a knock on Cory at all....i just like the proven goalie.

The sad thing is, this is the normal luongo we are used too.

If I were Schneider, I'd ask for a trade.

The funny thing is, it's not like cory has been bad, he has been solid. But luongo has played redic so far this year.

I would call it a #1 goalie starting 3 games in a row. Nothing more. In the season, you could very well run into a scenario where Schneider starts 3 in a row, what then? Are we going to anoint him the #1 and Lu the back up again?


Luongo staying for the year has nothing to do with long-term implications for the Canucks. Situation hasn't changed a bit.

While i don't follow every Van game, he just seems more laid back right now....both on the ice and in interviews.

Man, the media is hilarious on this. I'm sure AV and Gillis are getting a good chuckle out of all of this.
