Oh SL, I can just see you on the other side of this debate would it suit you.

Cory played 30 games last year, pro-rate that's well beyond the 41 you require. And closing in on the 60 you suggest for a legitimate #1.

But sure, sure, Cory has been on a 3 season "hot streak" and panicking the entire time.

SL, you kind of remind me of Bill O'Reilly. And as Letterman put it, "Too smart to believe what you say sometimes."

For the record, Luongo is a good player and has put together an excellent career. In fact, he may be Hall of Fame material if he can add a Cup to his resume before he hangs them up.

However, and in my humble opinion. Luongo is trending down and has been surpassed by Cory for this season and any future season. This is not a bash Luongo threat or post, this a pro-Cory post.

Still waiting for Coco and Pot to swoop in here and say the same things while looking unflinchingly into each other's eyes...

You still don't get it do you?

One can't "pro-rate" in this matter.

Schneider needs to prove he can play NHL starter-type-number-of-games before he is deemed an NHL starter.

Call me after he has a coupla 60+ start seasons under his belt...

Well apparently he only panics some of the time. :hmmm:

One wonders how many games those panic attacks cause him to miss.

For example, was Luongo left in the net for those blowout losses

... you know, those blowout losses that ruined his stats in a shortened season

... because Cory was melting down on the bench at the thought of going in?

We just don't know, do we Mondi? :mex:

So the #2 goalie in New Jersey is better than the #1 goalie in Vancouver?

I find that hard to believe...
