If Schneider were our goalie next year then our goaltending would be no worse than middle of the pack. If Bob is our #1 next year then we will likely be in the bottom 3rd in the league for goaltending. our defense will make up for a lot of bobs deficiencies but Schneider would be even better.

As uninspired as Hartnell has played the last 2 seasons, I'd welcome a trade of him for Schneider.
I agree that it's now or never for Schneider. If he has it in him, he must be ready to shoulder the load next season after 3 years of preparations (but that's still a big IF imho).

Did you really have the impression that our defense made up for any goaltending deficiencies this year?
