I'd rather have Schneider than Lu for this exact reason you pointed out; which I happen to agree with.

But it is what it is and we have him until his early 40's.

Where? That's easy. The Florida Panthers of course. Where else? Why? Cuz of the many many trades made between these 2 teams over the years. It's like the 2 GM's have each other on speed dial. For who? Well the Panthers do have a stud Dman named Jason Garrison who also happens to be from here. Maybe Schneids and Raymond for Garrison and Clemmenson plus some draft picks thrown in? Now I'm not claiming I can tell the future or anything, I'm just basing all this on the many trades made by 2 teams to each other over the years. And lets face it, Theodore is not the long term answer in Florida, Markstrom? The guy has 2 career victories so they're looking for an upgrade. Enter Schnieds. Clem would be perfect here, a career backup with no aspirations of every becoming a starter and someone who's capable of geting a few wins here and there.

Thatd be a ripoff for Vancouver. Florida would have to give up Versteeg++ for Schneider. That's how high Schneiders value is.

I'd love to get Downie from TB for Schneider. Not straight up of course.

But as of right now, I'd rather keep Schneider till draft day for this years playoff run.

Florida is not giving up on Jacob Markstrom.

Best goalie prospect in the world right now.

Played 7 games this year, 92.3 save percentage.

if we're trading a goalie to TB or Florida, I'm hoping that Lu would put up his hand and offer to go home

markstrom is one of the best goalie prospects. its hard to just pick one as they all have faults/positives that are greater than the others.

yeah, i've seen him playing blackjack there.

a few canucks players frequent the poker room there too. I was sitting beside andreas lilja when he was with detroit. I didn't know it was him, but chatted for quite a bit. I asked him what he does for a living, and he said he plays hockey lol...

For that reason, there may be a chance Schneider will be willing to stay in Vancouver. From a goalie's perspective, sure he may want to be a #1 goalie. But he should also understand the value of being a #1.5 goalie on a great team vs. being a #1 goalie on a bottom dwelling team. As much as any goalie wants to be a #1 in the NHL, I think they want to win and win the cup even more. Realistically, Schneider knows he won't be the type of goalie to only play 15-20 games a season if he sticks around here and he will continue to earn a greater role with the team. The only sticking point is what Schneider will want for a new contract as Lu's caphit and term are a bit of a handcuff.

Lu's NTC has an outclause in year 5 and 7 of his contract. If Schneider is willing to stick around another couple years and gradually take on a greater role, I think the Canucks offer Lu the opportunity to move on, and good chance Lu takes up the offer especially if we can win a cup here before then. Both Florida and Tampa would be great trade partners in this instance so Lu could go 'home'; Tampa will likely have a proper goalie by the time that happens though.

On an unrelated note, and speaking of the Canucks winning the cup:
