The Starting Goalie

I'm fairly certain this will be a landslide victory for one goaltender but who do you think will get the start for the Canuck's first regular season game of the season?

Schneider, but Luongo is still going to get around half the starts.

Ginger bricks. However who ever plays the best should get the first start.

Bigger question will be what will the split be? 50/32?

Schneider, but only because I think Luongo will be gone by opening day. If he's still here I think Luongo will.

there's really no right answer. if luongo starts, they have their reasons. if schneider starts, they have their reasons

essentially, whoever the coaching staff decides should start

I bet they toss a coin for it. So whoever wins the coin toss between them.

I hope they both start; Schneider for the Canucks and Luongo for another team of his choosing. Despite Luongo putting his best face on for the media, I can't imagine it's much fun having this drag on for 4+ months.

Luongo if he's still here.

AV will want him in the right frame of mind for the season so he will play Luongo first game. There would be no issue with Schneider. The Canucks have already shown their confidence in him by way of his new contract.

The same guy who got the nod in the elimination games in the spring. The management has decided who's the better goaltender moving forward, and have paid him accordingly.

The kid is the future of this team, they'd be dumb not to start him.

I have nothing against Luongo, and I hope he gets quite a few games if he's still here. But Cory to me is simply the better goalie now, and needs starts to continue improving. He's earned his shot, time to see if he can maintain it.

I pick option 3, whoever earns it out of camp, whenever the heck that will be.

Luongo said it, it's time to move on. If Lu is still here, he's here as the backup, just like Schneid's was before. It's the only way to keep this thing from blowing up in the teams face and the reason it didn't before. Have a clear #1, do not waiver.

Schneider. Doesn't matter if Luongo is here or not. Can't see Schneider not getting the first game, unless he's injured, or something crazy happens and Schneider gets traded.

God have mercy on Schneider's soul if he doesn't carry the Canucks to at least the Stanley Cup Finals at some point in his career. Vancouver media and fans will **** all over him until this happens.

Such is life being a Vancouver hockey fan. We'll crap on the goalie, but don't worry boys go make mistakes out there and shoot 40 pucks on net and don't score but god forbid if our goalie allows one questionable goal. It's not really a goalie town.

Such an astute observation, with one minor change which has been bolded.

Vigneault made this decision in the playoffs. Luongo will never be a starter in Vancouver again.
