I know its a small sampling, but last season he played 8 NHL games and had a +3 GAA and sub .900 save percentage. Is that the guy you want heading into the playoffs? Those stats are pretty comparable to Leighton to has just about the same AHL stats as well. I know Schneider is young and has potential, but his stats certainly aren't blowing me away.
I saw him in college, dude is legit, I've been a big fan of his for years.

Once he gets a chance, he's going to do well, just needs to be eased into the NHL instead of being given 2-3 spot starts every 6 months.
