And further...we didn't trade the wrong guy....

We traded the only guy we could because we had too..and it was Roberto that wanted out, not the franchise wanting him out. Alas his life contract was too much in a shrinking cap era....

As a helpful life tip, I'd like to suggest you do not waste much time comparing the 2. What CS does this year on a different team is meaningless. All that matters is what Lu does. That goes for either playing well or poorly. You are in the massive majority when you state you'd have preferred to keep CS. I am not sure why you spend so much time trying to make sure anyone knows. But luckily it is well documented. You should publish.

My view is well documented, and I have stated it long before this preseason began. It is a simple view, I think Cory is a better player and has been for some time. I also think that they should have kept him over Roberto.

That being said, the decision has been made and Luongo is on the team. I still think he's a serviceable player with all-star potential for this season.
LOL @ Mondi covering his ass! :lol:
Mondi wrote: Any inferences drawn about the debate between the two are based on 3+ years of comparison. Not on two games last season (where it is widely documented Cory was injured) and not on this preseason.

My question merely was whether anyone would prefer Luongo's first game in this preseason or Cory's? I think any rational poster would agree Cory has had a better start to the preseason.

And that question was in response to the revisionist homers around here who are all of a sudden trumpeting Luongo as the better player and Cory as some sort anxious player who is prone to getting lit up, when in fact Luongo has a far longer history of getting lit up in big games.
Ummmmmmmm so YOU raised the question of who was better in his first preseason game WHY?? :lol:

My oh my wot a tangled web you have woven!

Thank for the snide remarks buds. Check the title of the thread for why one might venture to compare the two players.

Didn't expect Schneider to be this hot out of the gate in New Joisey. Did Lou Lamaroo pull the wool over the Players Agents eye's? Should Gillis have demanded more in return? GM's around the league seem to have a field day with ole Gillis there. Or he's just really generous.

Schneider sucks, he averaged 4 goals per game in the preseason, whoops! ..... 1 goal per 4 games. :o
Damn!

Yeah, it sucks to lose CS, but they figured that this was the only chance to get a real blue chip player, a #9 pick in a deep draft. When was the last time that Vancouver drafted in the top 10?

So the Panthers have a new owner, and one with deep pockets. We all know that Luongo would rather be in Florida, so does this change the landscape re: trade?
