Can't wait to see him in goal for us. I was going ******* in my seat at the draft when I saw on twitter that it was going down before the pick.

Yo Devils, hurry up and make a player t-shirt already I need one!

I do think it's hilarious that Philly has been in goalie hell for 30 years, and Lou just walks up to Gillis on a whim and gets a decade of quality and stability.

If #9 from us was all it took, you have to think Philadelphia could have gotten Schneider for #11 + a later pick / prospect.

I love Lou so much.

Anyone bother to check the Philly board and their reaction to this?

Looks like the canucks choose the best offer after all.

Looks like it's a win win
As I said on the trades board the losers are the NYI and Philly. How do they let a divisional rival waltz in a take a core need for their team without putting up a tougher fight? You'd think they'd have been tired of watching NJ goaltending own them.

I feel bad for any goalie that goes to Philly.

Graveyard.

I love the fact that Brian Boucher has been their most successful playoff goalie in recent memory. And before that Hextall or Snow?


Fans are calling for Gillis' head after how he handled the goalie situation put Holmgren these last few years has been awful.

As a Canuck fan, I've been wondering the same for the past year +. Now granted, I naturally assumed it was going to be Luongo, but anchor of a contract aside, he would have been light years ahead of the retreads that the Islanders and Philly have been trotting out for what seems like forever.

The fact that it turned out to be Schneider in the end is an absolute embarrassment for those two teams (and, well, us). They can roll with whoever they manage to dig out of the scrap pile, meanwhile you guys just got a goaltender who - and I have little trouble saying this - should contend for the Vezina for the next 10 years. **** you.

There was actually some idiot over there who said Luongo was the better/more consistent goalie for them last year.

Don't forget, every team has middling defesenemen in their system like we do and Larsson sucks because he didn't play 20mins per night in every game last year as a 20 year old.

I really went to bed expected to hear Luongo was an Islander. Rumors were floating the night before the draft and it made sense. With goalie woes with ALL of our rivals minus the rags it is kind of shocking we were the ones who ended up with the franchise goalie.

Marty playing 30 games is still a terrific goalie. His SV% should go back up to a more acceptable level and physically he will be sharper and able to do the things he's always done.

I am not in favor of him playing more than that while there is a top goalie on the roster who is in his prime and is clearly more suited to play every day.

And I love the fact that Marty could now play for a few extra years. I don't want him to retire.

This is what I thought also. Making what ultimately happened even more shocking.

I think it would have been a lot funnier if NJ drafted Horvat first then traded him. The "WTF?" all around from leaving VN on the board first would have been hilarious, in hindsight.

What's really magical is how people are still bringing up Luongo with Schneider. As if the two are conjoined to the other's hip. I don't really care if Luongo is better than Marty at this point. Marty is the best of all time. That's something no one else can even dispute. So, the bickering is childish.

Canucks fans are right about how easy he makes things look with his play. So smooth and uneventful. Which is going to be weird going from Marty to Cory. Haha

Completely different styles. Even Marty's easiest shut outs bring out some acrobats on some routine saves.

I know we lack forwards but pending us re-signing Schneider, Lou has done a very good job of building from the net out. With Schneider at goalie and the kids in the farm. Merill,Severson,Urbom,Gelinas and Scarlett we should be solid defensively for years to come

Now if Marty teaches him how to handle the puck...oh boy will we be in for years of fun

It just hit me but man I honestly can't wait to hear Chicos reaction to this.

Know people on here have ran into him and chatted him up in the past. Anyone catch him at the draft?
