With the current state of the league, this scenario might make the most sense. Any deal between the Players' Association and the owners made to salvage the season will result in a tightly packed schedule.
There will be many more consecutive game days, hence starting goaltenders are going to be exhausted. By maintaining one of the best goalie tandems in the league, this will put Vancouver in a great position.
The Canucks will be able to give their starting goaltender in Cory Schneider appropriate rest without sacrificing talent in goal. During a shortened season, Roberto Luongo might be the answer to Vancouver's Stanley Cup prayers.
