    The 'Nucks finally realize that LuonGoal is not the answer... they decided the only way they can win is a goalie who payed in Boston.

    I guess we won't be hearing any "We have every confidence in Roberto." from Vigneault and the rest of the Vancouver side.

    Such a terrible contract.  I would be very surprised if the new CBA doesn't contain a buyout clause.

    He put himself in a tough spot when it comes to his career.  If they get booted in the first round, he'll be wondering if his phone will ring with a pink slip.

    This seems like a lose-lose situation for the Canucks.  Schneider looses, and they are down 0-3 and it would seem their problem is not in goal.  They win, and they start think they're stuck with a $5.3M backup goaltender.

    I thought Luongo was solid in game 1 and not bad in game 2. Definetly not the reason they are down 2-0, but what to do?

    Now, if they win, they have to stick with Schneider, if they lose, it would be real tough to come back and you could have seen the last of Luongo in a Nuks jersey.

    Just a last ditch move by a coach who knows his job probably hinges on this series. Pulling Luongo is a cop out for a team that's getting destroyed on the special teams. AV is hoping Schneider can save his job and Luongo is the scapegoat as a result.

    Kel, check a couple of the goals finding their way through him in the highlights and review that "solid" assessment.

    Pretty sure he's not taping any more "that's an easy save for me" videos.

    Exactly what I was thinking.  I'm really surprised that AV made this move. I mean, I think Schnieder is better now, so I get that, but the move smells of desperation in the 1st round (for the President's Cup winners) and frankly, Luongo wasn't the problem in the first two games.


    Where do they go from here?  If they get swept, he looks like a reactionary coach who didn't have faith in the lineup that won the President's Cup and hit the panic button too soon.  He also makes the front office look like fools publicily for the contract that now rests on a backup goalie.


    It's an interesting move, but it better work...and it hasn't yet...

    If they get swept, he looks like a guy in need of a job, doesn't he?  I mean, they might give him a pass because he's down a Sedin, but ultimately he's scrooged either way here unless they win games.  Everything else is secondary.  If he doesn't make the move and they get swept, he's "Play Him Again Alain" who isn't gutsy enough to try something bold to shake his team up.

    This makes me wonder about something I hadn't really thought of before.  I don't hear nearly as much "fire the coach/GM/trainer/hot dog vendor!!" stuff about the Canucks as you do when, oh, any other team in the league goes through what they have in the last year.  They got embarrassed on the game's biggest stage - partly taken to the woodshed by the Bruins, but largely made to look terrible by their own antics and mouths.  Now they're a game away from a sayonara sweetheart sweep as a #1 seed.  Whose fault is it?  I'll take the GM for 2000 Alex, but I'm surprised there isn't a lot more storm around Vigneault.

    Interesting.  I agree about having the guts to make the move, but if you're going to make it after two average (not horrible) Luongo starts in the playoffs, why not make it a month ago?  I think the timing is weird because they had the best record in hockey while claiming that Luongo was the #1 guy.  How do two average starts in the playoffs unravel that?

    I think we all agree that it is the right move to make, but if he really had guts, and believes that Schneider is better, why wait until now?  I would have gone with Schneider around New Year's.  The reason he didn't make the move sooner might have been the front office and the Luongo contract.

    I just think that to make a goalie change two games into the playoffs, when the starter didn't play badly, seems desperate for the 'best' team in the league.  Whether it's the right move or not.

    The Bruins were down 0-2 to the Habs last year and the fans/media were calling for CJ's head. What did he do as a result? He stuck with what got him there. He didn't change a thing. Like I said earlier, AV made Luongo the scapegoat for a team who's PP is running at a -2 so far. There's not a goalie in the world who could've won last night for them.

    Exactly, well said.  Nothing wrong with a coach making some changes or adjustments, but you also want to have a steady, confident hand as a leader.

    The Kings have outplayed the Canucks in areas that you wouldn't expect (scoring, special teams).  I have little sympathy for Luongo, as I have thought that Schneider was better for a while now.  But the timing of the move seems reactionary and it reeks of panic and scapegoating.  Maybe it will still workout, who knows?  But Vancouver can't get better goaltending than they had last night and they still lost the game and were beaten in a lot of different areas.

    I'll never buy into playoff excuse-making, but everyone has to admit that Duncan Keith has had a heavy hand here...or elbow.  Of course, one of our top scoring forwards was knocked out of a series last year on an illegal hit too...

    and I could see him being interviewed for the Habs job and if he doesn't they might just hire him right away.
    Anyway, Schneider did make some nice saves last night but he barely faced 20 shots.  Luongo might have done the same job.
    Kings know they got away with a bad game yesterday, they'll be stronger the next. Will Schneider hold the fort ?
    I know Quick will.
