Absolutely amazing value for the 9th pick. We just turned an uncertain pick into a sure fire #1 goalie for the next decade. He's young and extremely talented, it makes us a much more attractive destination for free agents too
So, it's a great trade in terms of value. Schneider for the 9th straight up is basically a steal. However, we still really need a star forward prospect.
true, but there's both UFA's and trades today still.
Lou's in deal mode. He rarely stops at 1.
I love this trade. It will make for a lot of armchair coaches this season after every loss as to who should have started, but long term this is solid.
