Exactly, how soon they forget!

We've been spoiled having Luongo for so long and now Schneids.

But for those who can remember the "dark days", think about it...

... there are teams out there who have been going through that the last coupla years:

They will pay an arm + leg for a tender like Lou/Schneids! :thumbs:

But again - I haven't forgotten about the "Cloutier era".............and at the same time, the Canucks' lack of success at the time had a bit more to do than just goaltending (which is why that despite being a "good" team, they weren't a "great" team like the current Canuck teams of the past 2 seasons).

If the Canucks were to deal both Lou and Schneids, you would have to think that we'd become extremely deep up front, on D, and on the farm. As was the case with Chicago back in 2010 when they won the cup (i.e. with a non-elite goalie, yet a dangerously stacked team in front of said goalie), perhaps the Canucks can do the same?

Think back to when Edmonton made a run to cup back in 05/06. Dwayne Roloson has never been a "superstar" goalie in this league, but he's always been pretty good........good enough to help a team win when he gets hot.

And there are also teams that have won cups without having had a goalie that could be considered "top 5" in the league.

-Carolina - Cam Ward
-Anaheim - JS Giguerre
-Detroit - Chris Osgood (probably not even a top 10 goalie)
-Pitsburgh - Marc Andre Fleury
-Chicago - Antti Niemi (probably not even a top 10 goalie).


What these teams DO have in common however, is that the team in front was freakishly good.......to the point where they didn't need a Tim Thomas-like or Martin Brodeur-like performance to win the cup. All they needed was for their average goalies to be "good" (which they were), and/or for the team in front to simply be overly dominant.

Hey Farhan, the pennies days are numbered. When are you going to upgrade to nickels?

Sorry Eddy,

I have no clue what that ambiguously gay comment pertains to.

If it's in reference to something along the lines of, "what worked in the past may not work now", I don't agree. I still think there's a million ways to skin a cat.

The Canucks will obviously keep Schneider and trade Luongo, but I think it would've been interesting to see what they could have gotten for both of them. Deeper farm, deep up front, deeper on 'D',.......with a chance that their new 'average' goalie could get hot when it mattered most.......like what Holtby is doing now.

Well he is offering digital thoughts, maybe he's using PayPal, or writing a cheque...

"Nickel for your thoughts" doesn't work as well, imo...
