Schneider is a proven NHL goalie and young. He is a stud

I'm told #Isles did in fact make an offer for Cory Schneider and that it was better than New Jersey's.
LOL! **** YOU FISHSTICKS! Have fun with whoever is gonna be your starter this year. Grampy Nabby again, or maybe leaning tower of padsa Nilsson. Looks like the fishies won't be getting Luongo now either. This signals that he's staying in Vancouver.
Over the last few years I've considered Cory Schneider and Berneir to be the top 2 goalies in the league that didnt currently have starting jobs. I guess we will see now.
Hurts seeing the Russian still available at 9 but this trade is so much deeper then selecting a new prospect. You build out from the goal to win championships and now we could have our goalie for the next decade. A goalie who is ready now btw.
Makes me wonder if Marty told Lou that this would be his last year.
why buy moose out? 1.4 million for 1 year....its so not worth it. I know he has a NMC does that mean he can't be waived? Even though its a 35+ contract
Moose was straight TRASH this past season. If Brodeur goes down again, which he has every year the past few it seems, we're more likely to win games with Schneider in there. More assured, it should be. We're sitting pretty when Marty retires as well.
Who else are we going to use a buyout on? We have 2 and the only other logical names are Volchenkov and Salvador, and neither of them are likely to be bought out.
We basically sewed our goaltender position for the foreseeable future up.
I don t know what to say. Lou stole a number 1 goalie for a 9th pick. This spells the end for the moose. man I wasn t expecting this today. I might have a hard time sleeping tonight. They need solid forward in the second round.
And if you asked canucks fans for verification that schneider somehow lost his job to lou which is not true at all, you asked robertos fan base who despised him for running roberto out of town. You wont hear the majority tell you this, most of us are not happy.
