where exactly do these guys get their information from??
And why would anyone in the canucks organization give such info that will shoot themselves in the foot?

Stupid reporters trying to get publicity...

"This just in, Canucks are going to weigh all their options with Luongo. Heard it here first."

srsly though, as far as goalies are concerned, he is/ was the best. Not just in stats, but in his overall style of play. He's one of the last of a breed, and a huge part of the reason that the butterfly isn't dominating all forms of hockey.

well done Brodeur!

Well, up to this point it's been speculation that a buyout is an option and GMMG has denied it. This is the first time I've actually heard of the Canucks discussing it as a viable option. And Josh Rimer usually tweets out pretty reliable info, don't shoot the messenger!

^ I still want to know in general, how do reporters get sources like this?
Who leaks info out like this? Cause it would be stupid if it was Gillis spilling the beans and digging his own grave.

i was thinking to myself, it's akin to how we always trade with florida then a reporter suddenly tweets "BREAKING NEWS CANUCKS CAN TRADE WITH 28 OTHER TEAMS! WOW!"



not trying to pick on you kristian, just saying reporters are desperate to report something and fans are equally (if not more) desperate to hear something, ANYTHING pertaining to the canucks.

Stop picking on me, guys

Really though, I wonder that too. My guess is there just texting/talking to other people in the industry looking for scoops all day.

We just don't need people saying the most obvious things and making it seem like some kind of new revelation. Until something actually happens, speculation is just wasted space.

It's getting interesting. 2 sources say Corey Schneider is in play. 1st and a prospect part of asking price. Suspect Oilers in on talks.

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger 16m
Schneider news might simply be a back-up plan (no pun intended)...if they're unable to move Luongo. Check what other asset is worth.

If it really is a backup plan if they can't get anything for Lu, get ready to say goodbye to Schneider. Because they aren't getting anything for Lu.

It’s always been the ace up their sleeve, but the Vancouver Canucks have never wanted to play that card.

In attempting to trade Roberto Luongo and his mammoth contract — the nine years and $40.5 million US remaining on his 12-year pact pays $6.7 million the next five seasons and has a salary cap hit of $5.3 million — general manager Mike Gillis continues to talk to four or five teams about moving the 34-year-old stopper. Those talks haven’t produced much because he’s reportedly considering what the market might be for Cory Schneider. It could a matter of kicking the tires, but if nothing comes to fruition with moving Luongo here at the NHL draft — league’s new trade deadline — then the reality of keeping Luongo and trading Schneider has to be at least broached.

The Edmonton Oilers would have rumoured interest in Schneider and the possible return of a first-round pick and a prospect is more than the Canucks are going to get for Luongo. The Oilers own the seventh-overall selection in the 2013 draft on Sunday in Newark, N.J. They have Devan Dubnyk under contract for one more season at $3.5 million and Nikolai Khabibulin is an unrestricted free agent. If Schneider is moved, the Canucks would have Luongo, Eddie Lack, Joacim Eriksson and Joe Cannata in their stable of goaltenders. Although confident in his stoppers, Gillis may add to that group with seven rated in the first two rounds of this draft. The Canucks pick 24th, but surrendered their second-round pick and Kevin Connauton in the Derek Roy trade-deadline acquisition.

At the trade deadline, the Canucks wanted two second-round picks and back-up goalie Ben Scrivens from Toronto but the Maple Leafs wouldn’t budge. Two years ago, there was considerable interest in Schneider from the Tampa Bay Lightning and Columbus Blue Jackets. With the league’s cap ceiling now $64.3 million, Schneider has two years left on his contract at an attractive $4 million salary cap hit. More importantly, at age 27, he would be attractive to pair with a stopper now or be the starter after going 17-9-4 in the shortened regular season before sustaining a groin strain April 22 in a 3-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. With Luongo losing the first two games of the Western Conference quarterfinal series against the San Jose Sharks, Schneider laboured and was yanked in Game 3 after allowing five goals on 28 shots. He responded with a 43-save performance in a 4-3 loss in Game 4 as the Canucks were easily swept aside.

Schneider was 0-2-1 in the series with a 4.62 goals-against average and .880 saves percentage. In the regular season, he was eighth in GAA (2.11) and fourth in saves percentage (.927). Luongo went 0-2-1 in in playoffs with a 2.57 GAA and .915 saves percentage after posting a 2.56 GAA (25th) and .907 saves percentage (31st) in the regular season. Earlier this week, Gillis was somewhat confident that Luongo could be moved as opposed to waivers or a costly compliance buyout option.

“I remain optimistic,” he said. “We’ve been talking to teams like we have for a long time. At the draft, I’m not sure what’s going to happen but we will continue to have discussions with a group of teams and we’ll see how it works out. In this business, you have to be absolutely firm in what you want to do. And that’s what we’ve done.

“There are a lot of moving parts in a Roberto Luongo deal which lots of people want to ignore. He does have a no-trade clause and a contract perfectly legal and ratified by the league at the time. We have to be patient enough to sort through it.”

Gillis will address the media on Saturday afternoon.

Would Eberle straight up for Schneider.

Makes me laugh a bit Dreger reports this now....when we Revscene guys have been saying "if Luongo can't be moved; I wouldn't mind Schneider getting traded for assets. He can probably get a better return than Lu" ....FOR A YEAR NOW

inb4 i become a tsn analyst
i can confirm i am darren dreger

I love this team...

but its starting to look like Gillis is crumbling and I have a feeling tomorrow isn't going to be great for Canucks fans.

If rumors are true and EDM is the trading partner for Schneider...he better be asking MORE than 1st+prospect simply because trading to an up and coming team within our own division isn't ideal.

I can just picture it now, nucks trade schnoo away, suck next season, Luongo will get moved for nothing and we go through 4-5 seasons without the post season

I'm pretty sure other teams are interested/calling about Schneider...not just the Oilers.

Gillis is obviously gonna ask for more than that. 1st+prospect SHOULD BE part of a package and I'm guessing a roster player is included as well.

And no worries we have Eddie Lack to save the day
