      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Signing] Schneider signs with Ambri Piotta

Recommended Posts

here's the link

considering that he is apparently half Swiss this means he counts as a Swiss player and they are still allowed to use 4 foreigners which is pretty huge over here.

hope he does better than Max Pacioretty. after all, Ambri is quite the bad team here in Switzerland. But since they had Schaefer as their no 1, it's safe to say he'll be the clear no 1 and will get lots of playing time

I'll definitely go and watch him play

It says nowhere that he has signed or when (end of December) he would. I think this is a very bold move for someone representing the NHLPA in the CBA dispute.

If he does leave soon it will show just how strong the NHLPA really is and its true colours.

@BradZiemer

Looks like Schneider will replace Nolan Schaefer as starter. He's the younger brother of former #Canucks winger Peter Schaefer.

It is the 26-year-old Cory Schneider, a Swiss-American dual citizen who is thus loaded the Immigration Quota of Ticino and not normally plays for the Vancouver Canucks.

Schneider debuted in 2008 in the NHL. In the last two seasons, he has established himself as getting better expectant backup of the famous Roberto Luongo.

He finished second in the respective rankings of the NHL places 2 third respectively In the playoffs, Schneider increased in three appearances even at impressive 96 percent thwarted shots and 1.31 goals per game.

The 1.88 m wide Schneider is considered extremely agile butterfly goalie. He had been in 2004 NHL Draft drawn in the first round by the Canucks. Ambris current main goalkeeper is the Canada-Swiss Nolan Schaefer. (Si

good job Cory, Ambri are struggling this year though, never actually seem to be relegated into the NLB though.. should be interesting to see if Schneider and Max Pacioretty develop some chemistry out there ;)

So he's signed until the end of December, but if the lockout ends in time to start games for the 15th, then he's going to miss 2 weeks of hockey? He can probably defect from the deal over there and come right back, I'm just curious as to how binding this deal is.

All things considered I guess it's not a horrible thing to have Luongo start for 2 weeks.

His name is Schneider, he has red hair and looks like a typical farmer's son, how much more Swiss do you want?! :)
