Win both: We're back bitches.
If Luongo is 100% right now I would go with him against Phoenix instead of Schneids. Cory is in the groove and could steal one in a tough building against a tough team. If Lou is rusty he could still get us the W against the Yotes. I get the argument to the contrary but I think my scenario gives us the best chance to win both games.
I agree 100% with the variety of responses. Kinda makes you want to take a step back and go "Wait, its just 2 games we're talking about," but I'd definitely be worried losing both.
Looking back on the Shark Tank though, Canucks have had some success there. I think it was 09/10 that San Jose was virtually unstoppable on home ice. Last year the Canucks went 1-0-0-1 in the reg season, 1-1 in the playoffs, so 2-1-0-1 last year overall. I could be mistaken, but I believe Lu had all the starts. Prior to last year I think they went 3 years without a win in San Jose. They've dominated Phoenix in their building, and Phoenix has been very hot and cold at home - 2 shutout losses already.
Though to be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if Lu starts both.
