The only year that Schneider has had as a starter as a professional is 09/10. His other years he has been a 1a or a backup.
In 09/10, Schneider looked just as calm and collected as we are used to seeing him playing in the NHL. However, he was prone to bad games where it looked like he couldn't stop the easiest shots. He had 5 games where his GAA was 6 or higher (Luongo had 4 of these games last year). He had 2 entire months where is GAA was 3 or higher (luongo's GAA went over 3 in October). All of his other months were closer to a GAA of 2.
For everyone saying that Schneider is consistent, we have no idea how he will respond to starter minutes in the NHL. If his previous starter minutes are taken into consideration, we may be having the same "inconsistency" conversations with him as well.
I agree, great points. +1
I am a big fan of Schneids, and i do think he will do well when he becomes the starter.
But Anyone who thinks he won't have off games just like Lu (or any other goalie) has occasionally has no clue what there talking about, and I hope we don't turn our relationship with Cory into the relationship we now have with Roberto.
