Cory Schneider's agent, Mike Liut, is hoping that the Canucks goaltending situation will reach a "resolution" soon.
And by resolution, Liut probably means that he hopes Roberto Luongo will be traded as soon as possible so that he stops competing with his client for playing time. "Our concern is we were hoping that this would be the year that Cory would play 75 per cent of the games," Liut said. "We are only interested in resolution, we are not going to get into the finger-pointing game and to that end you have to take a step back and you have to give them latitude to make a business decision." Liut added that he understands that Luongo isn't easy to trade for what the Canucks would consider fair value, especially given his contract. It's likely that Luongo will be traded eventually because their combined cap hit is roughly $9.3 million annually, but in the case of the shortened season, it might be beneficial to keep both goalies. The question is if that's possible without the situation becoming too great of a distraction.
