About as ridiculous as saying Jonathan Quick has outplayed Cory Schneider over the last 2 years. He absolutely has not. He's only played more games, for obvious reasons.

Swap these goalies and Quick is a career backup in Vancouver with under 40 starts last season and Schneider would have had the starters workload in L.A. with no competition for the role.

Cory Schneider is a career backup in the same way Jordan Staal is a career 3rd line centre.
