If Schneider flops, we still have Wedge in the system. There's your puck handling goalie.

True enough. Everything about Martin Brodeur will be missed eventually. The Devils will adapt.

This is just fantastic news. Build from the net out.

We just had our biggest problem solved. Marty can't play forever. Very happy with this move.

Marks my words Cory will be one of the best in the league very soon if not next season. He has been properly developed as Canucks fans just witnessed the worst trade in franchise history.

For those of you not sure of this trade you have zero idea what you are talking about. I can't WAIT to come back here mid season and see you guys in love with this guy

Very true, but they would have had to adjust anyway since any replacement would be inferior to Marty in that department.

I actually have it recorded.

I went back and looked at shot charts for all 48 games the New Jersey Devils played last season, and recorded how many goals and shots were recorded in the box between the circles and the goal line.

I haven't had time to crunch the numbers or do a proper analysis, but the raw data tells me that we allowed 10 or more shots within the slot last season in 26/48 games in, 15 shots or more in the slot 6/48 times, and 20 or more shots in the slot in 2/48 games.

I was going to prepare a proper study using other teams, both high and low in shot quantity, using both conferences, for comparison. But sense you're dismissing me instead of engaging actual conversation, I'll present it now.

Give me a few days to crunch numbers.

Congrats guys, Canuck fan here.

I'm happy for you guys and happy with the trade overall for a few reasons, two years ago I felt Cory to the Devils made sense, more of you showed a solid amount of respect for him that same year when we played one another.

Most other fan basis threw mud at us, I'm glad none of them got one of our goalies, none of you should hate this.

I remember 1 or 2 years ago when we played the Canucks and Schneider stole the game. You beat us 2-1 and Schneider was fantastic

This seems like an overstatement, but it's nice to see all of the Canucks fans seem to be upset about this.

Schneider found out about the trade like we did, watching the draft, I doubt Lou had discussions with him or his agents.

Lou's going to want to watch him in our uniform for a year before talking extension, too.

Yea I can't really say anything negative about this. Obviously we could have used a big time forward prospect but the goalie situation was a massive problem. I NEVER believed that the heir apparent to Marty would come from within the organization and I was right. The young goalies we have in the system are just meh. I do feel for Hedberg because it seems like hes an amazing guy n all but he just can't play anymore. This HAD to be done for next year and the future. Like Feed ME A Stray Cat (Lol love that movie) said Marty was pretty bad after he returned from injury. He was Mr. Softee A LOT. He can definitely still play but not at a great level and it pains me to say since hes the GOAT but its the truth.

Schneider's idol is Mike Richter:

@AndrewRockswell Mike Richter is my idol, he was one of the best. I picked number 35 in honor of him. I'm glad his number got retired.

It's the truth though. At this stage of his career, hes an average goalie at best. He gives up tons of weak goals even though he still occasionally makes the highlight real save. Everybody obviously loves him but you have to be realistic here.

And so we've finally answered the question of who's going to replace Marty. I had hoped this day would never come.

But Schneider is a good American kid (kid, lol. he's my age) from the Northeast and can stand on his head. I like the trade. I wasn't in love with any of the first round options floated for NJ.

It's not bashing. Athletes get old. He's still on the team. I never want him to retire. Now he might actually be around longer!
