Teams will want Luongo. Especially teams without frequent playoff performances. True, he generally falls apart in the playoffs, but he's a goalie who can get them there and that counts for something when you've got a bunch of no-name goalies. Luongo in some small struggling market could put butts in the seats.

Oh for sure. I just doubt he'll get much for the Canucks unless they're willing to take a bad contract coming the other way or a package of smaller things mashed together (schlubs, picks and prospects). Everyone in the league knows Vancouver will be happy just to be rid of his financial and emotional baggage.

And, by the way, NHL.com just reported that Luongo has said he will waive his No-Trade Clause.

Schneider will be the Canucks goalie next year. He is younger and there goalie of the future, though he is due for a raise no question about that. Lu will probably end up in TB with Stevie Y

Ya lu wont command all that much on the market at this point. If van decides they are moving him then they will have to settle for something undervalue coming back as they cant afford to have 2 goalies on big contracts and other teams know this. Add to that lu's age to contract ratio and his enotional baggage and u arent getting much back.

Schneider will be the Nucks tender next season. Luongo will be traded no doubt but to whom? I don't see Burke pulling the trigger for the Leafs although the Leafs are always the first team rumored to be in any big trade. Columbus and Tampa Bay I think might be the front runners. Especially Columbus if Nash could/can be in the mix.

With each passing day, it looks like it will be Schneider. But an interesting question - how will he fare with the possibility of appearing in 50-60+ games, as opposed to the 20-30 he's used to at the NHL level?
