"Our concern is we were hoping that this would be the year that Cory would play 75 per cent of the games," Liut told the Sun. "Is Roberto going to be there all year? It's certainly looking like he's going to be or both will be there until the (April 3) trade deadline. What happens after that, we'll have to react to that. But my concern is in the obvious, we have a 48-game season and you've got two goalies of their stature.
"Roberto is established, everybody knows what he can do, and you've got another one in Cory, who hopes to get an opportunity to play (as a No. 1) for the first time, and we've got this fractured season."
Liut however expected both goalies to remain in the Canucks' lineup for a while, especially with the extended lockout early this season and Luongo's significant contract to unload on another club in exchange for a hefty return.
But he wants to see his 26-year-old client get most of the starts.
"If they are both there for the entire season, and it's a 48-game season, and Roberto plays 40 games, that's a disaster," Liut added. "That's an extreme and I don't think that's going to happen, but certainly the sooner the better.”
In 33 games with the Canucks last season, Schneider registered a .937 save percentage and 1.96 goals-against average. This season, in four contests, he has posted a .897 save percentage and 3.13 goals-against-average.
