Luongo vs. Schneider: Nothing To See Here

Luongo vs. Schneider: Nothing To See Here

It’s tempting to look at Cory Schneider’s play so far this season and suggest that the Canucks may have a goaltending controversy at their hands. Two points. First, the obvious. Like it or not, Roberto Luongo has a no-trade clause in his 12-year/$64 million contract that kicked in this year. There are a couple of windows of opportunity during the life of the contract to move him should he or the Canucks decide to part ways, but the first such opportunity isn’t until around the fifth year of the cotnract. Like it or not, Luongo is here to stay, at...

Get Ready for a Rough Ride

Get Ready for a Rough Ride

Finally some good news on the Canucks injury front as Rick Rypien is finally ready to make his season debut tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. Good timing too, especially with Alex Bolduc suffering a rumored high ankle sprain, Guillaume Desbiens reportedly tweaking his back, and Jeff Tambellini looking out of place on the fourth line. The Canucks will welcome Rypien’s feistiness. The Ducks haven’t won a game this season – they’ve lost their first 3 games on the road – but lead the NHL in penalty minutes by a large margin. They’ve taken 40 penalties totaling 141 penalty minutes, including...

Cory Schneider: Backup Goaltender and Trade Bait

Cory Schneider: Backup Goaltender and Trade Bait

I originally started this post as part of a series to discuss what the Canucks should do with certain players as they near the draft and free agency. Now that the team has re-signed Cory Schneider to a 2-year, $900,000 contract, I’ve had to do a complete re-write. It didn’t surprise me that the Canucks signed Schneider to a new contract. After a couple of successful seasons with the Manitoba Moose, Schneider seems poised to make the jump to the NHL, and his RFA status only makes him that much more of an attractive target for offer sheets. (In 2009/2010,...

Signapalooza!

Signapalooza!

The lack of Canucks news was starting to get so boring and sad that I was about to write my story of a hockey playing giraffe in blog form. But all of a sudden we have signings of players coming out of our ears! I guess Gillis has moved on from the eating a pint of ice cream and throwing darts at a picture of Dustin Byfuglien stage of grieving. Anton Rodin: A Swede! Our Swede supply was getting dangerously low if you ask me with just four. He was drafted last year in the second round. I remember reading...

Cory Schneider sinks the Rivermen

Cory Schneider sinks the Rivermen

That’s pretty much the story of tonight’s game between the Manitoba Moose and the the Peoria Rivermen. With a 3-2 victory tonight, the Moose grab 2 valuable points in the playoff picture. Actually it was Cory Schneider who swiped the the 2 points for Manitoba. Yan Stastny started it off in the first period throwing a puck short side shelf on the Peoria goaltender followed by a lucky break when Jordan Schoeder banked a shot off the D man Nate Guenin to give the Moose a 2-zip lead. The Rivermen paddled back for 2 goals but Mario Bliznak was able...

Moose look forward to post-season, Hodgson

Moose look forward to post-season, Hodgson

So here it is in a nutshell … As it stands now the Manitoba Moose will either play the Rochester Americans or the Hamilton Bulldogs depending on this weekend. If the Moose finish in third place – which is still possible – the Moose will play the second place Americans. This weekend, we see the Peoria Rivermen, looking for a little revenge from earlier this year where the Moose lost both games of a two-game battle. Historically, the Moose have a pretty good home record against the St. Louis Blues affiliate; and two wins over them will help them pick...

Cory Schneider’s Canucks Shelf Life

Cory Schneider’s Canucks Shelf Life

Photo credit: canucks.com Cory Schneider remained a Vancouver Canuck after yesterday’s trade deadline. But for how much longer? According to Mike Gillis, the Canucks have significant plans for him: “We had a number of teams call about Cory but there wasn’t anything that we felt was appropriate,” Gillis said. “He’s a great young player in our organization, a fully developed goalie who is ready to step into the NHL, and that’s not something you would trade away lightly. We have significant plans for Cory. We’re going to get into those plans with his agent in the next couple of weeks...
