Does this really need a thread?

It's the Swiss league and he's on the worst team there.

At least he ain't scared to go over there. I'd sooner have him getting lit up than making some stupid award video and posting it on YouTube.

That's what so bothersome. Swiss league, worst team and he looked terrible.

Unproven. But looks like we're stuck with this one until the bandwagoneers start yelling for the next guy.

It's one game and the large ice surface is sometimes difficult for goalies to adjust to.

We've seen Schneider is so many pressure NHL games and he's been fine. He provides consistently solid goaltending. The only thing that remains to be seen is how he does with a 55+ game workload.

Attempting to stop pucks with Ambri-Piotta in the Swiss League.

I stress the word, "Attempting". He got the hook after letting in a flurry of weak shots. Fan or no fan, it's painful to watch either way.

If this is the sign of things to come, don't put your ropes and torches away too soon.

Expectations for Cory Schneider are much too high.  He is a very good goaltender, and plays consistent hockey...  But his best is not nearly as good as Luongos best.  And he is still going to have stinkers of a game, like every hockey player has.

Remember that the trade here is having flat land goaltending over the peaks and valleys goaltending.  Some people are expecting Cory to win the Vezina in his first year of being a starter....   :picard:   These people should not expect this to happen, but enjoy watching him evolve into this role, and expect that there will be some stumbling blocks along the way.  This is why we need a capable backup to step in and play some games, and is why Im hoping we get a tender in return for Lui.  Lack isnt there yet... at least he hasnt showed it with his play so far this season.  A couple more years in the A wouldnt hurt his development imo.

So many pressure games? Not too much when your the back up. He wins, hey good for him, he loses, ah he just the back up gets the excuse. The Boston game was good for Schnieder but not that much pressure, regular season game.

Thornton and Nash could destroy that league, bu they're barely at a PPG pace. These guys are just trying to stay in shape, they're not taking it too seriously.
