Guys if we have Vancouver SV% we saved 27 GOALS - that is like 10 more wins. I wanted the russian badly, but this makes use a contender.

Marty had one more year left in him. It was totally unnecessary to pay such a steep price for a goalie, when we could have acquired one for much cheaper after Brodeur retired.

Now Schneider goes from splitting games with Luongo, to splitting games with Brodeur. Its a bad move especially because we needed a good young forward prospect so badly. Who do we have in the pipeline? Nobody.
Marty was below average in each of the past three regular seasons. There's no getting around that.

Hedberg was awful last year.

1)Only 2 more years on Schneider's contract. $4 mil per.

2)Capgeek already has Schneider on the NJD's roster. Props.

I don't know what to feel really. Part of me says its too soon to get that kind of a goalie, and I hate to see the pick go, especially when we could've had Nichushkin, Shinkaruk or Domi.....

But I'll digest it for a while...

It's not like Schneider will be ecstatic to come to a new place and be no.2 again.

Marty played fine last season. He got hurt and this team couldn't score, which complicates things greatly.

Barring injury I don't see Marty playing more than 30 games this year.

Marty is the starter on opening day for sure if he's healthy. Corey is there to split starts this year and take over #1 next year.

Kinda feel for Moose. Love the guy but the writing was on the wall after that horrid stretch.

Marty starts opening night for the ceremony. But Schneider will get at least 65% of the starts during the season.

When you deal with the Lou, you don't break secrecy unless he allows it.

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice 1m
Schneider talked to Mike Gillis shortly after that. And then Lou Lamoriello, who apparently swore Canucks to secrecy.

It's not like Schneider is 22-23 years old either..... He'll be 30 sooner rather than later.....

I'm not too thrilled right now..

I don't think they will need to. He can see the writing on the wall.

I'd rather trade Urbom. I'm shocked he is still dropping though.

Like I said, our defense is a higher priority than goaltending.

It's huge. We make the playoffs last year with Schneider.

Some people haven't realized that Brodeur is a below average NHL goalie. They keep looking for excuses.

But it was the 9th pick as opposed to Top 5.

This person is right. I watch most every Canucks game I can, and he is amazing. He's already better than what Phily/Pittsburgh/NYI have in their nets, and dare I say he has potential to be Lundqvist level soon enough?

We also got him for a steal after what Colorado paid Washington for Varlamov two years ago. He's already played in almost twice as many games, and is much better than Varlamov was then and is now. They paid the Caps a first rounder for Varlamov two years ago, and Schneids is much more proven.

No way Brodeur is a below average goalie. He's a third defenseman for Christ's sake that still singlehandedly neutralize the dump-in game.

The defense that was the best in the NHL at preventing shots last season?

Our defense is good, at least defensively. Our forwards are good in their own end. Our goaltending is what has been bad.

Brodeur has had a below average save percentage for the last three seasons. Claiming he's not a below average goaltender now is ignoring facts.

I see Mary getting the opening day start as a possibility but Mary isn't play anywhere near 50% of the games.

Schneider has put up a .927 SV% for his career (98 games - 2715 shots). He is now going to play for the team that gave up the fewest shots last season. He will play a lot for us and he should.
