He is not a good playoff goal tender, plain and simple. Smith had a great regular season and a great playoff performance. Lets see Schneider carry the load all season and have a great year and then a great playoff performance before you can say he is better then Smith.
Really, most teams had a shot at Smith for free a year or two ago....many passed.


And for the poster who claimed 27 vs 31 is not that significant in goalie years, then why in the hell is Pekka Rinne thought of higher than Luongo. 30 vs 33, pretty much equal.

Man the main board can get to me somedays
