Vietnamese woman 'aged 50 years within days'

Vietnamese woman who claims she aged by 50 years in just days has doctors grappling for answers. Nguyen Thi Phuong has the wrinkled and saggy skin of a woman in her seventies, but claims she is just 26 years old, the media reports. Ms Nguyen claims her skin started to sag and fold after an allergic reaction to seafood in 2008, which caused her to develop hives. She used traditional medicine to treat the hives, but her skin began to age rapidly days later, she says. "All the hives disappeared, together with my itching. However, my skin began to sag and fold," she was quoted as saying. what the problem is and I can be treated so my face gets back to normal." Sydney-based dermatologist Michelle Hunt said she was suspicious about the claims, after seeing photos of Ms Nguyen before and after her condition developed. "There is a slight difference in the nasal elevation between the two," she said. "Usually, with age, the nose tip droops but in this case it is tilted up a bit in the photo where she looks older which makes me wonder if the photos are of two different people." But it was also possible that Ms Nguyen suffered from generalized cutis laxa, Dr Hunt said. Cutis laxa is a rare condition that causes skin to lose all its elasticity. It is congenital condition but has also been

linked to allergic reactions. The condition, which is extremely rare, may develop any age following an outbreak of hives, Dr Hunt said. She said a skin biopsy could verify Ms Nguyen's claims. Doctor Hoang Van Minh, head of the dermatology ward at Ho Chi Minh City Medical University, diagnosed Ms Nguyen's condition as mastocytosis, according to local news publication. But Dr Hunt said this condition, a rare disorder caused by too many mast cells, would usually cause a patient's skin to look red and pigmented, rather than making it

sag and droop. Dr Hunt said the condition would most likely need to be corrected with cosmetic surgery. Ms Nguyen's husband has stood by her side and says that he still loves her as much as the day they met. "I married Phuong when she was a beautiful woman. I have followed her through her disease and have never been shocked at all," he said. "It's not easy to talk about one's own marital affairs. Just simply understand that I still love her very much." What could she be suffering from?

WomAN chArged With exploitiNg Workers

A Wellington businesswoman in New Zealand is facing rare charges of exploiting Fijian workers by not paying them the minimum wage or holiday pay and inciting them to work while on visitor visas. The 44-year-old has been charged by the Immigration Department with 12 counts of aiding, abetting, inciting, counseling or procuring two women to breach the conditions of their visitor permits, supplying false information about the purpose of their visits and her relationship with one of the women, and failure to pay money under the Holidays Act or Minimum Wages Act. The two female workers named in the charges have returned to Fiji. The businesswoman was granted suppression of her name, occupation and identifying details. Lawyer Bruce Squire, QC, said his client worked in New Zealand and Fiji. He argued that she should be allowed to travel to Fiji to meet work commitments. After her arrest last week, she surrendered her passport to Immigration lawyer Terri Thompson said there were concerns the businesswoman would not return, telling the judge that the womans children were in Fiji. There was also the risk of her contacting witnesses while there, she said. Mr Squire described the concerns as nonsense. The womans business and her husband were in signed a lease for new premises. He said she was a permanent resident in New Zealand, her husband was a citizen and her Wellington District Court judge Chris enough to affect the womans right to travel, especially to her homeland. He said the allegations were of underpaid employees who were unable to work legally in New Zealand. The maximum penalties the woman faces of $100,000, or both. Judge Tuohy granted her bail until next month on the condition she have no contact with witnesses or the complainants, and that she advise the department of any travel.

Fiji's multiculturAlism AmAzes VisitiNg AcAdemic

A VISITING academic who was a guest speaker at the recent Fiji Literature Festival says she was impressed by the fact that a Muslim college in the west had a Hindu principal. Qaisra Shahraz, an English academic of Pakistani origin, told the media that multiculturalism in Fiji was alive and kicking in all its positive aspects. Ms Shahraz said multiculturalism appeared to be well embedded in the fabric of Fijian life and that there were good relationships and mutual appreciation of other local languages, cultures, and customs between Fiji's ethnic groups. She said Fiji was like any other developing country and was facing the invasion of balance between the old and the new. "It is important to move with the times but one should not have to compromise and give up one's culture and customs. Fiji is extremely rich in its multicultural heritage and good at celebrating it which is appealing to outsiders," Ms Shahraz said. She was also highly appreciative of the world-renowned Fijian hospitality that she and her two young sons enjoyed while staying at the Trans International Hotel in Nadi. "My sons and I had a wonderful time," she said. "My sons had a great time on the beautiful Bounty Island, swimming and snorkeling. We were well feasted and treated to wonderful entertainment, with lively and graceful dances and songs. Fijian hospitality is simply marvelous and we got to sample a lot of mouthwatering and delicious dishes, a wonderful mixture of Indian and iTaukei cuisine provided by the Fiji National University's wonderful catering staff."

Coke plans $2bn IndIa Investment In bId to boost growth
Coca-Cola has said it will invest $2bn in India over the next five years in a bid to increase its market share in the country. Part of the investment will go towards expanding manufacturing capacity and the distribution network to meet increased demand. The worlds largest soft drink company said it expects India to be one of its top five markets by 2020. The amount is equal to what Coke has invested in India in the past 18 years. This investment is a part of our longterm commitment to invest in innovation, partnerships and a portfolio of brands that will enable us to grow our business in a sustainable and responsible way, said Atul Singh, president of Coca-Cola India. The countrys demographics, economic and social parameters are all huge drivers of growth and we have to ensure that we capitalise on the opportunity, he added. Important growth markets With robust economic growth in recent years and a more affluent middle class, India is one of the fastest growing consumer markets in the world. Coca-Cola has also benefited from Indias rapid rise, with the company the last 21 quarters. Ahmet C. Bozer, Coca-Colas president, Eurasia and Africa Group, said the company was keen to tap further into Indias expanding market. India is one of our most important growth markets as we work toward our 2020 vision of doubling system revenues and servings this decade, he said. If we continue to do the right things each day and at all times, it would not surprise me if India becomes one of the top five markets for the company globally by the end of this decade, he added. The company said it will use part of the investment to focus on enhancing the consumer experience and building brand loyalty.

lIver Implant gIves boy another ChanCe of lIfe

Doctors in London say they have cured a baby boy of a life-threatening disease which was destroying his liver. They implanted cells which acted like a temporary liver, allowing the damaged organ to recover. The team at Kings College Hospital in south London says the technique is a world first. Eight-month-old Iyaad Syed now looks the picture of health but six months ago he was close to death. A virus had damaged his liver causing it to fail. Instead of going on a waiting list for a transplant, doctors injected donor liver cells into his abdomen. These processed toxins and produced vital proteins acting rather like a temporary liver. The cells were coated with a chemical found in algae which prevented them from being attacked by the immune system. After two weeks his own liver had begun to recover. Professor Anil Dhawan, a liver specialist at Kings College Hospital, says the whole team at the hospital is delighted: This is the first time this treatment has been used to treat a child with acute

liver failure. Its only a few months back when I first saw this child who was so sick requiring support on dialysis and a breathing machine. We think we have given him another chance of life and seeing him now six months down the road with nearly normal liver function is remarkable. Dr Ragai Mitry, Head of Liver Processing at Kings, who helped in developing the

technique, said: We are very pleased the transplanted liver cells have helped in supporting and delivering the missing metabolic functions of Iyaads failing liver. Iyaads father, Jahangeer, said his son was a miracle boy. He added: Once he had the treatment after 48 hours he started to get better and hope came back. It is brilliant and we are very proud of him.

The suspect was furious because he believed another player at the gaming venue had cheated him, said local police chief Senior Inspector Jordaen Maribojo. He was searching for the man who he believed had cheated him. Apparently, the grenade thrower saw the man in the middle of the gambling area. When he saw him, he lobbed the grenade and fled, said Insp Maribojo. The explosion killed a 19-year-old man named by local media as Joseph Tomelden while most of the 22 injured were also teenagers who had been watching or playing the game, he said. years since the foundation of Carmen, a rural and violence-plagued town on the strife-torn southern island of Mindanao, according to local police officials.

when san Jose man Charles preston noticed the windows in his second-hand minivan would not go down properly he figured he would live with it because it had a great air-conditioning system. But Preston was shocked when his mechanic found the cause of the window jam half a million dollars worth of cocaine packed in the door panels, the San Jose News reported. Preston paid $14,000 for the 2008 Chrysler minivan, which he uses to deliver food to people living on the street, in May last year. Recently he noticed the brakes were making funny noises so he took it to the mechanic, who checked and repaired them. When Preston arrived to pick up his van, the mechanic said he noticed a problem with the windows and offered to look into it. At first the mechanic thought the objects he found wrapped in purple and clear cellophane were some kind of insulation, but soon realized they were not installed by the manufacturer, and instead contained drugs. Im, like, dumbfounded, said Preston, a psychologist. Honest to God, my hands went numb. After the police were called they found 14 packages of cocaine hidden in the doors. After impounding the van, they found five more above the back wheels. They told me, Youre so lucky, youd be in jail for the rest of your life if you got searched in a traffic stop and they found this, Preston said. The van was previously owned by a rental car agency and the car lot that sold it to Preston has offered to replace the van with a drug-free ride. I just want to get rid of the van. I dont want it in front of my house, Preston said. Somebody could just come and want the car and run me off the road. When I drive now, Im always looking around.

emaIls show people arrIvIng In uk on prIvate Jets were not CheCked by border offICIals
a uk border agency (ukba) official has leaked emails which claim some passengers arriving on private charter flights did not face any passport or customs checks. The official, working at Durham Tees Airport in northern England, voiced concerns to management at the UKBA that his staff did not even see some of the passengers. He was told the no-checks policy was part of a new national General Aviation Strategy being rolled out and that the policy at his airport was consistent with national policy. The whistleblower wrote, As we are not allowed to physically see the passengers ... we have no way of checking whether the handling agent information is correct or even if the number of people arriving matches the number we have been advised. It is creating a situation where we are not able to secure the borders as robustly as we would like to, for no justifiable reason. In an extract from an email written back to the whistleblower, management said, The procedures were put in place to satisfy the business need and after consideration of the perceived risk of the traffic at the airport ... it suits the business and eases the never ending pressure on resources we have on a daily basis. In response to the leak, a spokesperson from the UKBA said in a statement, It is not true that we dont carry out passport and warnings index checks on private flight passengers and we will deploy officers to airfields where we have concerns. The official is the latest in a series of whistleblowers claiming that border officials were authorised to water down checks at UK ports and airports and that this had come from Home Secretary Theresa May. May insists she only approved the pilot scheme to relax checks on some European passport holders and that Brodie Clark, the former head of the UKBA, extended that to thousands more EU and non-EU passengers without her permission. He resigned to pursue a case of constructive dismissal after May was accused of hanging him out to dry over the controversy.

a three-year-old boy had his eye accidentally glued shut by a doctor at a hospital in northern Ireland. Sam Caldwell was taken to Ulster Hospital, near Belfast, after he sustained a cut above his right eye, the Belfast Telegraph reported. Doctors told his mother Kerri the best way to close the wound was to use medical glue. After about 20 minutes the doctor told Sam to open his eyes but he couldnt, she said. His right eye was completely glued shut. She had put too much on his lid and it had slid around his eye. She added, No one came near us. Sam was getting more and more upset, crying and screaming, but no one in the hospital came back to us. Another doctor later told the alarmed parent that the glue would take at least four days to wear off, saying the little boy would get used to it. The whole experience has left both Sam and I very upset. He is scared to open his other eye. I am annoyed that this happened, he went in with a minor cut and came out with a glued eye, Kerri Caldwell said. A hospital spokesperson said, Unfortunately, it is a well-recognized complication that the glue can leak before it dries. In most cases lukewarm water will loosen the eyelashes, but otherwise this will occur naturally within one to three days.

Laura ODonnell walked free from court.

a woman who had sex with four teenage boys has walked free from court after being handed a suspended prison sentence. Laura ODonnell, 20, pleaded guilty and was convicted in the County Court of four counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16 and five counts of committing an indecent act with a child under 16. Court documents reveal she plied the alcohol on three separate occasions. The first two involved one victim and the third, all four. Documents show ODonnell, who had trained to be a childcare worker, assaulted the boys while drunk between February and June last year in Ballarat . Judge Sue Pullen wholly suspended

ODonnells two-year, five-month sentence and placed her on an 18-month community-based order despite her previously breaching a similar order for an attempted robbery.

Scientists considered tooth scaling frequent if it occurred at least twice or more in two years; occasional tooth scaling was once or less in two years. Protection from heart disease and stroke was more pronounced in participants who got tooth scaling at least once a year, said Emily (Zu-Yin) Chen, cardiology fellow Taiwan, who co-authored the study. Professional tooth scaling appears to reduce can lead to heart disease or stroke, she said, adults who had received at least one full or partial tooth scaling and a similar number of people matched with gender and health conditions that had no tooth scaling. None of the participants had a history of heart attack or stroke at the beginning of the study, under the Taiwan National Health insurance data base, the source of the information used in the analysis. In a separate study, researchers found a big difference in heart and stroke risk based on the number of remaining teeth. Anders Holmlund, Centre for Research and Development of the County Council of Gvleborg, Sweden, and senior consultant (specialized dentistry) studied 7,999 participants with periodontal (gum) disease and found people with fewer than 21 teeth had a 69 percent increased risk of heart attack compared to those with the most teeth.

too much tv and little exercise ups depression risk

According to the study that surveyed nearly exercised were around 20 per cent less likely to get depression compared to those who rarely exercised. Higher levels of physical activity were associated with lower depression risk, the reporter quoted lead author Michel Lucas as saying. The findings revealed that those who exercised the most 90 minutes or more each day were 20 per cent less likely to be diagnosed with depression than those who exercised 10 minutes or less a day. Meanwhile women who watched three hours or more of television a day were 13 percent more likely to be diagnosed with depression than those who hardly ever tuned in. However, Lucas added that the results dont prove directly that watching too much television and avoiding exercise leads to depression and that there could be other variables involved.

CrtC offers CompromIse on usage-based bIllIng

decision allows internet wholesalers to charge based on speed, not volume
small companies selling internet services will likely be paying for download speed under a decision announced by Canadas telecommunications regulator. The companies, which buy their internet services from larger established providers such as Rogers and Bell, were fighting an application to the CRTC by Bell to charge more to wholesale customers. The CRTCs decision, announced Tuesday, gives established providers two options for charging independent internet service providers a flat rate or a rate based on capacity and the number of users. Bell had asked to be able to charge based on the total volume of internet data used by its wholesale customers. The regulator rejected that model. The capacity rate model charges based on the speed of the service meaning the small ISPs will be paying for the size of the pipe, not the amount of data that flows through the pipe. And it means small ISPs will have to pay more to provide faster internet to their customers. The CRTC requires Bell and Rogers to allow the smaller companies to use their internet infrastructure and regulates the price which they can charge for it. The regulator initially approved Bells pitch to charge fees for going over set bandwidth limits, but the Conservative government pushed back soon after the January 2011 announcement. Prime Minister Stephen Harper favoured a review of the decision, and Clement announced on Twitter that the government was asking the CRTC to take another look. Clement was right Konrad von Finckenstein, chair of the CRTC, says the regulator made a mistake in deciding last year to allow Bell to raise its prices for independent service providers. Our original decision was clearly not the best one. It was wrong and it was pointed out by a lot of people, including Minister Clement. He was right. We have today fixed it, we have made this new decision, von Finckenstein said. The bottom line is that you as a consumer will not face a cap or limitation of use because of anything mandated by the CRTC. Any kind of cap or limit, payment per use that you will have to pay is because your ISP decides to charge you, not because we mandate it. Clement responded on Twitter, writing that von Finckensteins comments were gratifying. Another part of the decision will force the small ISPs to plan how much internet they expect to need. If they require more than theyd planned for, they will need to buy more capacity from the established providers. Part of the rationale for going with a capacity model is that it costs more for the infrastructure to provide faster internet. The infrastructure is much of the cost for providers like Bell and Rogers, who are the only ones who directly reach consumers homes. NDP Digital Issues critic Charlie Angus pointed out in a statement that the decision only affects about six per cent of the market, those who buy their services through smaller ISPs. Angus said hed like to see the government do more to protect consumers from unfair billing practices and bandwidth caps. Allowing big telecom companies to reach into the pockets of struggling families and ask for even more money is just plain wrong, Angus said in the statement. large providers vs. independents The dispute was between companies, such as Bell and Rogers, which own the cables and other infrastructure, and small internet service providers, which rent network access wholesale from those companies and sell it to customers. The small ISPs often sell internet services at a lower price than the mainstream companies and with no monthly limits on bandwidth. After the government demanded a review of the CRTCs original decision last winter, the regulator held hearings to examine new proposals and get feedback from consumers, industry groups and internet providers. The review generated thousands of submissions through an online public consultation and included several days of public hearings in July. The CRTC heard a number of new ideas for how retail internet should be priced: which included usage-based caps and overage surcharges, was met with harsh criticism. Its final proposal was that independent ISPs be charged 17.8 cents per gigabyte of usage. Consortium, which represents small model, in which charges would be based on the measured peak network traffic travelling at the point where the independent ISPs network joins the network of wholesale network providers such as Bell. network services from companies such as Bell in some areas and rents its network to independent ISPs in other areas, proposed that wholesale providers charge independent ISPs based on the capacity of the link between the wholesalers network and the independents network. The price includes the cost of upgrading other parts of the wholesale providers network to accommodate traffic from the independent ISP for the next 10 years.

The healthy immigrant effect persists, according to a Statistics Canada study released Wednesday that found immigrants are generally healthier than Canadian-born citizens. Although the edge in health declines for immigrants the longer they live in Canada, the mortality rate for newcomers continues to be lower than for Canadian-born residents, even after immigrants have lived here more than 20 years. The study does not examine the reasons immigrants tend to have better health, but those are likely to include the screening that selects an inherently healthier group of people who arrive in Canada, and also those who have a healthier diet and are more physically active in their native countries. The longer the immigrants live in Canada, the more closely they adopt the patterns and behaviours common here.

Sunshine Coast resident busted for insurance fraud after reporting motorcycle stolen
engine and other parts. ICBCs SIU learned the hard way that filing a false insurance claim and police report can be costly. In 2007, Jesse Germaniuk told police that he chained his 2002 Honda 600 motorcycle to a wooden post in the town for a couple of days and when he returned the motorcycle had been stolen. Germaniuk subsequently filed a stolen vehicle claim with ICBC and because he carried comprehensive insurance, which includes coverage for stolen vehicles, he collision coverage on the motorcycle though, so had he been in a crash, he would not have been compensated for damages to his bike. In 2010, ICBC received a tip about the claim through its fraud tips line. ICBCs subsequently investigated the claim and determined that the motorcycle was not stolen as Germaniuk claimed. In fact, Germaniuk had crashed his motorcycle into a pole and then salvaged the investigation that led to the seizure of the Honda engine and other motorcycle parts and accessories from a shed on Germaniuks property, following the execution of a search warrant. After pleading guilty to fraud by filing a false claim last June, Germaniuk was in victim surcharge costs.

immortals (PG) * * *

By ROBERT WALDMAN Ancient times create the perfect havoc for warring factions in Immortals, a sizzler from Alliance Films now holding court at Empire Studio 12, Colossus and Cineplex Odeon Theatres across B.C. Gods and mere mortals collide in Immortals, a rambunctious offering from Alliance Films that works on a variety of levels. Sure to prove popular with those into mega fantasies like 300 and Clash of the Titans, Immortals charts a brutal course of a plain man battling a ruthless leader out to control the world. Steeped in mythology and tradition its the Gods that are looking down on Earth as a relentless madman sets his sights on conquest of the lands. By all accounts King Hyperion is as ruthless as they come. Oscar winning heavyweight Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2) gets lots of screen time which he uses to full advantage as he slices and dices his way through the lands in a quest for immortality. Number one objective is for him to secure a magical bow that wields unbelievable powers. Out to stop him are some ordinary citizens led by the most unlikely of heroes. Not quite ready for prime time warrior to be is Theseus, a man with his own grudge to settle against King Hyperion. Relative unknown actor Henry Cavill (the Count of Monte Cristo) may well be headed to stardom as the mild-mannered peasant/slave who rises to the occasion to lead the revolt against Hyperion and his mammoth army. High up above, overseeing the impending bloodletting, are a series of Gods who also have a

Oprah Winfrey receives honorary Oscar for humanitarian work

Oprah Winfrey received an honorary Oscar at the 3rd annual Governors Awards in Los Angeles last Saturday. She was awarded the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, granted for efforts that promote hope around industry, US magazine reported. I never imagined myself receiving an Oscar, certainly not for doing what I believe is a part of my calling, a part of my being, she said, as excerpted by the Hollywood Reporter. Its unimaginable that I would be standing before you, voted by the board of governors. So when I say thank you, the thank you comes from a place deeper even than I know, because its not just from me, its from everybody who made me possible, she added.

for survival. Snazzy special effects, mild 3-D elements, and a sense of desperation all work well in this campy tale that fans of this genre will warmly embrace. Director Tarsem Singh (The Cell) takes us back in time to the ancient world and succeeds in building a strong rivalry with good against evil and creates great tension and epic battle scenes worthy of your consideration. Strong support from the likes of Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies) as a comrade in arms to Theseus and Freida Pinto (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) as a virgin with the ability to foresee the future help make this epic journey a lot of fun. lends a hand as a mentor or sorts with lots of historical baggage in his resume. Bottom line on Immortals is that its fantasy with lame 3-D elements but engaging battle scenes and rivalry that makes this movie rock!

She said that the number of enforced dowries in rural areas was alarming, and that it was not diminishing despite government efforts to wipe out the tradition.

WWE Survivor Series 2011

NHL Trade Rumors

CM Punk Needs to Win for WWE to Be Exciting Again

Trading Vancouver Canucks Cory Schneider May Not Be an Option

goalie Roberto Luongo suffered an injury in Sundays win against New York. For now, Cory Schneider will be the Canucks number one goalie. It has been widely assumed that the Canucks would have to trade the backup goalie before the trade deadline this season. It makes sense; he is a talented young player who is stuck behind an entrenched starter. Schneider will be a restricted free agent after this season and the Canucks will have to make a decision sooner or later. The general thought is that they could bring in quite a haul for him this year at the trade deadline. While some fans would rather see Luongo traded out of town, the reality suggests that he wont be traded. Luongo is under contract for what feels like the end of time and has a pretty hefty that you would have to get him to waive his no trade clause which doesnt seem very likely. So that leaves them with the option of moving Schneider. While it may seem like the Canucks could get decent return for Schneider, there may not be much of a market for him at the deadline. Any team looking to pick up Schneider at the deadline would be a team that saw themselves as contenders. There are not many of those types of teams that dont already have their goal tending shored up. Philadelphia, New York , Pittsburgh, Washington, San Jose, Chicago, and Detroit all are set at goal tender and will not, barring a major injury, be interested in Schneider at the deadline. Perhaps the biggest exception to that would be the Tampa Bay Lightning. last year and returning starter Dwayne

Since CM Punk became the best in the world, the WWE has buried him to the point of almost completely stopping all the momentum he built this summer. Thats why at Survivor Series the WWE has to give CM Punk the WWE title. CM Punk is one of the best pure wrestlers in the business, and his talent on the microphone leaves all others in the company to shame. Alberto del Rio is solid on the mic and in the ring, but he doesnt have that charisma that the WWE wants from their title holder. The experiment of him holding the WWE title hasnt been a huge disaster, but it has been lackluster enough to warrant a change of hands. All of the change that CM Punk was talking about is bound to take place sooner or later, and what better time than at the If the WWE wants their shows to be interesting again, they need to hand CM Punk the WWE title and a microphone and allow him to run the show. That wont happen, though. This is the WWE were talking about. There are enough stars not involved in matches that this has the feel of yet another run in. John Laurinaitis and Kevin Nash are still kicking around in the backstage area, and to think that someone who doesnt like CM Punk wont interfere is just nave. WWE is trying to blow the doors off Survivor Series this year, so I imagine in this match. What that means is anyones guess.

Roloson is struggling this year. Some of that is the play in front of him and some of that is his age. So lets say that the Lightning, or another team that rises up, feel that they are one goaltender away from getting back to the Finals this year and are in the market. Would Schneider be that guy? There are other options that may come to get equal value. In Long Island the Islanders are carrying three goalies right now. Most notably is Evgeni Nabakov who has made it pretty clear he would like out. Nabakov would be cheaper and is a guy who has much more experience than Schneider. The Lightning has already mined the Islanders for a goalie and might prefer to do so again over Schneider. Then there is Jonathan Bernier in Los Angeles. He is stuck behind Jonathan Quick and the Kings might also be looking to move their back up. Bernier and Schneider are both

and both considered future number one goalies. Bernier may come cheaper than Schneider to Schneider. Schneider was on the Presidents Trophy winning team, got a start in the playoffs and has some cache across the league. If a team could get Bernier for less than Schneider they might prefer that, thinking they were getting a player with a similar upside. Schneider is not the only option for other teams looking to make a deadline deal. That may force them to hold onto Schneider and make decisions this off season. In the off season more teams will come into play as landing a young and up coming goalie will be a much sought after commodity, even for some contending teams. It looks like the Schneider versus Luongo debate will be a topic all year in
