Welcome to the British Columbia goalie yard sale. The Vancouver Canucks, whose interest in trading veteran netminder Roberto Luongo has long been rumored, are now also entertaining the possibility of trading Cory Schneider, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger. Schneider took over as the primary starter in Vancouver this season after two years as Luongo’s backup, finishing with a 17-9-4 record during the lockout-shortened campaign. Schneider’s goals against and save percentage statistics both dipped from his 2011-12 totals, though, when the Boston College product set club records for both in 33 appearances, and neither he nor Luongo were able to steal a game for the Canucks in the playoffs. San Jose scored a total of 15 goals in a first-round sweep of Vancouver, with each goaltender starting two games. Dreger reports that a first-round pick and a prospect would be likely be the starting price for Schneider, with Edmonton being mentioned as a possible suitor. Schneider has tallied a .927...

Roberto Luongo is a goalie. He gets paid a lot of money. The Canucks haven’t been able to trade him. Why? The answer to this question is far ranging, particularly if you don’t necessarily know the ins and outs of the NHL collective bargaining agreement.

One of the big talking points during draft weekend was how Vancouver handled the goaltending situation between Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider.

With the news that Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov would get bought out and rumors that Roberto Luongo is close to a similar fate, it’s a great time to look at whose available to replace these guys and what options are available for NHL teams looking to add a new goaltender.
