Looks like tant and surreal were discussing in wheeling thread already. Was surprised not to see a thread started. My bad.

Anyone packed Luongo's luggage yet? I'll be waiting in front of his house with a limousine.

Who was it that kept on saying $4M per for CS? :D ;)

Glad one goal is accomplished so far this offseason!

And we don't have to worry about a offersheet, however unlikely that was, it just erases the tension.

MG also said something interesting.

Gillis tells ‪#Canucks‬ season ticket holders that he can't speak about Justin Schultz now. Then added 'Maybe later'

Gesus......you follow jeff Paterson. Is there a less cool guy at the TEAM ? It's tough to be the biggest retard at a station that employs Don Taylor and Scott Rintoul but Paterson pulls it off.

Good signing for the redhead and the team. Now sign Doan to 3 years 14 million ...... sign JS , trade Luongo for a young centre and a prospect + salary dump...... get rid of Ballard to NYI . Get on it Ol' Luggage Eyes. :lol:

Great, great deal. Well done MG!

(I just know he's reading lol)

Totally reasonable AAV when compared to the Rask deal, and considering that the Canucks bought 2 years of Schneider's UFA.

I also love the flexibility on the term; if Schneids really is top-flight #1 material, then we're getting him at a steal for 3 more years, at which point they can worry about another mid-long term deal. If his body of work in the next 3 years is mediocre then at least there will be the option of looking for an upgrade. Hell, by 2015 Eddie Lack may be the new most popular goalie in town. :mrgreen:

Interesting to see how quickly the goaltending dominoes are falling now. Hopefully Lou is next...Tallon and Burke know a huge portion of their leverage just disappeared, if it was even really there to begin with.

+1 on that plan.

As for the Schneider deal, seems very fair and allows GMMG to kick back and get fair value for Lu....

And as much as I like Blobs plan, signing Schneider, signing Shultz, and getting good value for Lu, will make this a great off season regardless of what else happens.

Good deal and good term. If Schneids pans out the way he should, he'll get his raise when the contract's done. Glad this one didn't go down to Sunday.

He still has to sign on the dotted line, though... :whistle:

Hopefully this will be the domino that starts the rest of the action.

Fair deal for Schneider and the Canucks.

Ideally, Schneider would have likely signed for $3.5 if it were a one year deal, but to buy two UFA years, the Canucks bumped him up to $4M.

He got his money and the starting job, now it's time for 35 to prove he's the star we think he is.

Make no mistake, with Luo's seemingly imminent departure, Schneider will be on the hot-seat.

Earn it kid.

MG has been very methodical in how he has approached this and once again he has shown he does not low ball players. He will offer fair market value. Now that this is done, and I am sure they know what Shultz will be doing, they can assess their needs and get on with the Luongo deal. If Shultz is a Canuck what they need or want from Florida will be different than if he is not.

Very pleased with this deal. Sure, 3.5 or 3.9 would have been nice but 4 is reasonable. And ya, now he has to prove he deserves it.

I'd say he already proved he deserves it.....now he needs to prove he deserves more. Luongo was full marks for his contract. The guy played at an elite level in Florida and then here in Vancouver before getting his big meal ticket. He deserved it. He just didn't deserve the length of the contract. Schneider is on a 3 year term. Perfect for a guy who has developed the way he has. Improvement on his end will come in the form of consistantly playing at this level.....then he'll deserve more.

Schneids was the only goalie that Conn Smythe winner Jonny Quick faced who out-shone him during the playoffs.

Good deal, good term.

If Schneids turns out to be the tender we hope he is the next deal is a loooong term. Thought he might wait out the Luo deal but who knows maybe something is almost complete, you know I's dotted T's crossed kinda thing.

Anyways I'm happy he's here to stay as I really like the guy and his demeanor.

I though Luo would bring us a cup in his stay here but things change and I wish him luck if a move is indeed finalized. He gets a standing "Luo" on is return!!
