... but then every goaltender is a flakey head case in my professional opinion.

I think Lou should play close to 60 games. I also think we need a coach who knows when to (and isn't afraid to) pull him. You can tell when Lou is begining to unravel. Many folks were screaming for him to be pulled at some point in STF Game 3, and some felt Shneids should get the start in Game 4). When Luongo melts down he MELTS DOWN. He gave up 12 goals in just over 4 periods (last 2 in Game 3, first 2 in Game 4. Hmmm quick check of the stats tells me he only let in 8 goals in the other 14 STF periods = MAGNIFICENT). But I digress.
He's one of the top goalies in the world and Schneids is unproven = Lou deserves at least 50 starts.

Best goalie we ever had PERIOD.

Keep him unless we can add a solid proven veteran goalie + TOUGHNESS.
In answer to the thread title question: LOVE him.
It's possible Bobby Lou can become an even better goaltender going forward. He's not that old... for a goalie.
Agree with those who said remember the goalies we've suffered and think about why Vcr is the Goaltender Graveyard.
