The Canucks are coming off an embarrassing 7-3 home loss to Anaheim in their season-opener Saturday, with starter Cory Schneider getting pulled in favour of Luongo after allowing five goals on 14 shots.
Luongo allowed two goals on 12 shots — both by Teemu Selanne — that gave the Ducks 6-2 and 7-3 leads.
"I had it figured out a couple of days ago, and nothing that happened (Saturday) night changed my mind," Vigneault told reporters after the team's morning skate.
Luongo, the Canucks' former No. 1, is on the trading block after being displaced by Schneider in last spring's playoffs.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
