As a new season approaches, the tough finish to Vancouver's outstanding 2010/11 season and playoff run will finally fade into the past. At least temporarily.  

It's been a short summer, and already new questions and concerns are generating buzz around the city of Vancouver. However, the talk of the upcoming season surrounding the Canucks has filtered down to one pivotal question: What will the team do with their upcoming RFA, Cory Schneider? 

The promising netminder is entering into his last year of an entry-level deal with the team, and now decisions must be made.

One of the many bright spots last season for the Vancouver Canucks organization was the development of the first-round prospect, as he served as Roberto Luongo's backup for his first full year with the big club.

Together, Luongo and Schneider combined to post the best goaltending numbers in the league, both earning them the Jennings trophy at the NHL awards.

Signed only until the end of the season, GM Mike Gillis has a tough task at hand now as he faces a deadline to either deal or sign the talented goaltender.

With speculation already mounting towards the possible outcome of the Schneider sweepstakes, the time has come to take an in-depth look at what Vancouver can get for their guy.
