Personally I think he stays until the off season.

Would he be any worse than the current guy you have? Also, wouldnt it be better to get a goalie who has played on a winner and knows what it takes to be a winner, and already has that work ethic?

How do you upgrade your current G situation if you dont want to trade for an unproven or a proven goalie?
I think maybe there isn't clarity on the point at hand....It's not about not wanting Schneider (if it is, those people are crazy), it's about not giving up a player like Johansen to get him. Have you seen the difference in defense play between the two teams (and I'm not just talking the 6 defensemen although there is a huge discrepancy there too). I'm sure Schneider would help maks some of our significant defensive difficiencies, however, it is only one piece. The other is having a future franchise Center which many of us believe Johansen will be.

Two independent things here. Yes to Schneider, no to moving Johansen from this fans perspective.
