What does every successful Stanley Cup team need?
An unstoppable goalie.
Recently, there has been talk about Roberto Luongo being traded from the Canucks, but that would not leave them hanging.
Cory Schneider took Luongo’s starting position from him last season during the playoffs. While Luongo is an incredible goalie, so is Schneider.
Luongo has been the best goalie in Canucks franchise history, so maybe it is time for Schneider to prove himself.
If Luongo does not get traded, the Canucks will have the comfort of options. This could be even more efficient and important in case of injuries.
Especially if the season is condensed from the lockout, the Canucks will be incredibly strong in the goal, giving them one less thing to worry about.
