Do You People Really Expect Corey Schneider To Be The Best Goalie In History?

111 posts in this topic

I expect Cory Schneider to be a younger Roberto Luongo. Seriously, both goaltenders are good/great, but the fact remains that Schneider is a lot younger.

my bad too. i thought you were one of those Lu trolls..hopefully with the new stats you like Cory more than before..also this year in the playoffs he put up ridiculous numbers, in the 3 games he started he had a GAA of 1.31 and a SV% of 0.960. In those 3 games Quick allowed 5 goals and Cory only allowed 4 while having all the pressure of elimination and a hockey market.

Even though Luongo's numbers and records are closing in on Roy's, and Roy is definitely at least in the top 3 of best goalies of all time.

Sorry but compare amount of games played and that's one of the stupidest comparisons yet.

Cory Schneider has a knack for making a save and staying in good position even in heavy traffic. He pounces on loose pucks to kill the play and settle his defense. He keeps his core square to the puck. In the playoffs where crashing the goal for garbage is the way to score.. this matters.

The book on Luongo is that the more people you direct to the net the more erratic his play gets. Put stuff at his feet, crash the crease, watch him fall on his stomach, lose his stick, slide out of position, get spun around looking for the puck.

I wish Luongo the best wherever he plays next year. But I like our chances better in the playoffs with Schneider in net.

4 shutouts + beating his arch rival in game 7 overtime + making it to game 7 of the SCF say hi.

I don't know, his playoff numbers are very close to his regular season numbers....Nope, that can't be consistency!!!11

My biggest concern is anyone remember Jim Carey? Won the Vazina and Calder his first year, had a couple of big seasons and then fell off the face of the earth.

Not saying that will happen to Schneider, but I already know Luongo can play, Schneider is largely unproven.

You can post Schneider's stats all you want. You're just proving my point.

Luongo has been posting consistent stats for 11 seasons now. thats a .917 or higher for the past 11 seasons in a row. For comparison? Miller's had 4. Lundqvist has had 5. Dominik Hasek had 4.

We're really expecting Schneider to immediately jump into this level of goaltending? What if he hits a slump? what if he gets injured? What if he doesn't have that calm dememour when he's a starter? What if he loses a playoff series, and let's in some bad goals?

I'm just trying to say...everyone is very very very excited about Schneider, I get it. But you're trading a known commodity, a , for a goaltender that has never played more than 35 games in a season.

And that doesn't scare ANYONE??

It has something to do with age, salary, and potential as well.

Luongo is a known commodity and is relatively consistent throughout the regular season. However, it's unlikely that his play will dramatically improve over the coming years, while with Cory he's still yet (hopefully) to reach his full potential.

I love both of them and wish we could keep both, and ultimately I'm fine with whoever we keep. Either way we'll have a really solid netminder.

I don't expect him to be the best , but I hope he becomes the best goalie in history.

So far for goalies who have played a minimum of 60 NHL games, he does already has the best save percentage in history. Lets hope he can keep it up.

All time save percentage:

Schneider .928

Rask .926

Hasek .922

Thomas .921

Rinne .921

Lundquist .920

Luongo .919

What I don't understand is people that think Cory will suck

He's not some fluke that came out of nowhere. He's a goalie meeting his draft potential. It was always known he would develop into a star in this league.

It doesn't really matter who is better as much as what is better for this team. Gillis will make the best move that makes the most sense and the Nucks should be stronger for it.
