The Vancouver Canucks are enjoying having two established goaltenders for now.
The Calgary Flames certainly don't know what it's like to have that luxury.
It's not clear who will start in goal for either team - for vastly different reasons - when they meet Saturday night in Vancouver, with the Canucks seeking a fifth straight victory.
Roberto Luongo continues to be shopped around by Vancouver (6-2-2), and had made four straight starts before giving way to Cory Schneider for Thursday's 4-1 victory at Minnesota. Schneider made 22 saves, and insists he isn't upset about the situation.
"It's great knowing there's another guy who can go in there and put up those kind of numbers, and it just motivates you to be that good and chase him," said Schneider, who saw his first action in 11 days. "I've been doing it for a couple years now, and I think the team enjoys that, just knowing whoever's in the net we can win."

Definitely wouldn’t want to be a Wild fan right now. Their two big off-season acquisitions haven’t changed anything in Minnesota. It’s the same old bland brand of hockey.
The Canucks meanwhile are now off to their best start in eight years, so there’s that.
