Roberto Luongo made his fourth consecutive start Monday night for the Vancouver Canucks. Any other year, that would be nothing of note. But given the offseason the Canucks went through, it's a bit head-scratching. The Canucks seemed all but committed to Cory Schneider after giving the former backup a three-year contract extension worth $12 million. The secondary move, after signing that extension, was obvious: The Canucks would have to trade Luongo. However, the lockout came and went and once the league reopened for business, Vancouver was left with only a week or so to unload the goaltender before the season began.

He has seen the bulk of the action thus far, and that's basically because he has earned it. Luongo is 3-0-2 with a 1.53 goals-against average and a .940 save percentage. That's not sitting well with Camp Schnei...
