Schneider's better than Neuvirth, but the upgrade isn't remotely worth Alzner. And Raymond doesn't make up the difference when the Caps are additionally sending a 3rd and Holtby.

Schneider + Rodin (http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospect/Anton_Rodin)

for

Alzner + a late round pick (4th, or 5th; not certain with Washington's pick status)

Schneider gives the caps a definite number one goalie for years to come; Alzner comes home to Vancouver. He's a burnaby native, I played street hockey with him when we were in school together.

Pretty much zippy chance Alzner gets moved.

So the Caps trade their best defensive defenseman, who's only 23 and on a sweetheart contract, for a slight upgrade in goal and a prospect?

Um, no.

I guess that's why he puts up twice the points and twice the Selke trophies.

No thanks, we don't need Schneider at the cost of Alzner.
This thread is not about Kesler or Backstrom, so why get into an argument about them?
Everyone knows Backstorm is better by a large margin anyways.

heyyy now. He's got a American flag, lives at the rock and is a Nucks/Flyers! So I think the USA has to take credit for him haha

Don't worry though. I promise someone will say something just as facepalm worthy from our side

Ya I would jump at a chance to get Alzner, Washington does not do this, even though they get a bonus pick for signing raymond.

people are going to be surprised when Schneider does get dealt at the draft.

this is the type of deal that I really do see going down.

If the Caps trade for a goalie, it'll be for a veteran and not at the cost of a young top 4 shutdown D.

Goalies don't generally get value this good, even if they're more proven than Schneider. I seriously, seriously doubt the Canucks get a guy like Alzner coming back. A surprisingly good pick (plus other decent assets)? Maybe.

Nucks fans will be even more despondent when at the draft the Caps acquire Luongo for Cody Eakin and the lower Wash 1st(not Colorado)

Why would they trade for him. Just wait for the Nucks to make him an amnesty buyout?

As a Canucks fan.

I think I would gladly take that.

lol my bad I just was reading all these different topics about Schnieder to .... and everytime i go in and read a lot of the canuck fans seem to want way to much for him. Dont get me wrong I think Schnieder is gonna be a great goalie somewhere but 2 topics in a row where guys are asking for Alzner+ from Washington and Hamonic+ from the Islanders just made me shake my head.

Not sure why you have the sarcasm there.
Pretty sure both Lundquist and Luongo have let in 3 in a period before, many times.
Actually come to think of it, most NHL goalies have. Guess they aren't #1 goalies.

Given that the Goalie Guild ranks Neuvirth as 8th to Schneider's 1st, and Holtby above your Eddie Lack (whom I've noticed has Vancouver fans quite confident in their goaltending situation), they're not really hurting the way you seem to think they are (especially since Holtby has Varlamov+ upside).

It's not as if Schneider is a veteran that's a lock to come in and be a very good #1.

And yeah, there are several things the Caps need to look for before looking at a goalie upgrade. Easily.

If I were Caps GM, I'd gamble on what they have for goaltending.

Goaltending isn't the problem for the Caps, I'd find it somewhere else.

No joke, between Neuvirth, Holtby, Grubauer, and maybe Soberg, there's no reason to worry right now, especially when two are some of the better young goalies in the game.
