Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

We replaced our 27 year-old starter with a 34 year-old starter. We traded away the less-expensive goalie and kept the more expensive goalie. We traded away our best goalie and kept our second-best goalie. (1a and 1b monikers notwithstanding.) It's probably fair to say that Gillis made the best of a ...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

The "situation" aside, you have to think Gillis bungled this up 3 or 4 times over and yet AV got canned and Cory got traded. Now they don't even know if RL will report, heck Gillis hadn't even spoken with Luongo. And Cory found out he got traded while watching TSN. To me, the team is being run like...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

The issue here, it seems clear, is not what MG got for CS last night, but that he mis-read the situation for the past year or so and boxed himself in. (and actually even further back to signing RL to the deal in the first place). If you remove the goalie circus background, it looks like the Canucks...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

The math goes like this - $27 million buyout and Schneids, or Lu and Horvat. Gillis and co made the right decision.[/quote]

But why was that the math we had to deal with? I have to believe Gillis could have handled things in such a way as to change the equation.

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

The team didn't pull the plug on their franchise goalie. Their franchise goalie, for personal reasons wanted to go back east. That lead to the team accelerating CS to see if he could take over, he could, but then we couldn't move Luongo. I'm warming to this. At least we get a good top draft pick an...

Re: MacKenzie: Corey Schneider to NJ for 9th overall pick

I thought the idea was to go for it with this core. And the idea in trading CS was to acquire parts to help this season . It's nice to have a good prospect, but this guy isn't projected to be a franchise player so I fail to see how this deal helps the Sedins, Kesler and gang win this season or next...

Re: Canucks select Bo Horvat with the #9 pick

I don't get it. I can't find a discussion of the merits of the Schneider deal. WTF? (I think that's what the kids say.)

Re: The All Important Right Side

I've been a long time gone and I'm hoping y'all can help a brother out with some direction ... where the hell is the discussion of the Schneider trade? I found two threads that were both locked. Is it verboten here, er what?

Re: GDT: Yotes @ Canucks - 7:00PM PST, SNET-P

Why have we not been starting Schneider?
Will they give him the next four or five?

I'm waiting for my daughter to finish her dance class ... anybody know where I could watch the game online? (For free, of course. I've got dance classes to pay for.)

Re: GDT: Canucks @ Beantown - 10am - Snet / NHLN-US

The decision to start Schneider says nothing good about the Coach's trust in Luongo. And if the de-facto Number 1 guy is already mentally "fragile", surely this only aggravates that problem.

Re: NHL APPROVES NEW FOUR-CONFERENCE FORMAT FOR NEXT SEASON

Whether it was a simple mistake (yes they do happen, even in big binness) or a calculated gambit on the part of Bettman, I don't see any advantage in this for Owners. The "PR" angle is thoroughly over-imagined by many observers imo.
