Agreed people's views are going to be influenced by their own biases. Having said that, it would be interesting to know how GM's would rate the younger goalies. I suspect that most GM"s would have Schneider pretty high up the list judging by the comments we hear from a lot of so-called hockey experts who see Schneider as a goalie who will become a strong starter. I doubt very much that he ever reaches the level of Luongo but he does look to be a solid goalie who should at a minimum become a legitimate starter this year. We'll see how he does this year but I think most people expect him to take the next step fairly seamlessly. It's not like he is being rushed into being a starter. This is simply another step.
