Schneider>>Rinne

Rinne benefited from Nashville's solid defensive game. While Schneider gets hung out to dry by his all the time.

Not too many goalies are stealing games like Schneider this season. Bobrovsky is probably the only comparable.


Key words for sure. I think this is something that as Canuck fans we should start getting used to because we're going to be seeing a lot more of it.

A simpler way would be to look up the stats at NHL.com Cory falls somewhere in the top 10 Lu falls short of that. In my opinion number of wins means very little. Save percentage and goals against average are the 2 key stats a goalie wants to see. Of course everyone likes a winner, however winning an 8-7 game would hardly be called a goalies game! It is nice to think Schneider and Lu are the 2 best goalies in the NHL, Its also delusional! Having said all that you can see that C.S. has made some improvements to his game He is seeing the puck better and staying in position better and letting the puck hit him. Kodo's to our D for fishing out the rebounds and clearing them. The team seems to know where the puck is going to end up with him in net

I really don't think Fleury is that great of a goalie on his own. I know he won a Cup in 09 and has played in the Finals twice, but I think Fleury gives the Pens 'adequate' goaltending, and that's about it.

Oh yeah: Marc-Andre is a beast in the shootout, which is kind of useless come playoff time.


The best bet to rank the goaltenders IMO is to figure out which ones see more shots (like 30+ a night) and still manage to win games and/or have great stats. It's not perfect, but logic would dictate that scoring opportunities would increase as shots on goal increase.

Some goalies hide behind defensive systems that limit shots and scoring opportunities, and as such, they get away with more credit than they actually deserve.

If we're going by this year alone, the top goaltenders in the league have been:

Bobrovsky, Lundqvist, Rask, Schneider, and Neimi.

Hides behind a defensive system. 5 guys playing D helps your stats tremendously.

Lou only at #2? Show me another goalie on the list that has better career numbers then Lou? Ok brodeur possibly but he's washed up at this point and Lou is in his prime.

Cory at #6? He hasn't even played one season as a #1 goalie and he's in the top 10? The only reason he has better numbers this year... Well and last is that the team plays a much more defensive game with Cory in net and keep all the shots from the outside. With Lou they can gamble a little more because they know they have the best goalie in the game ready to save there butt.

Excuse me ! Lous SP is 34th in the league stats and is no longer a top 10 goalie. What he was is not being argued here but only what he is now. He is technically flawed and Schneider is the #1 on the Canucks. Schneider has always faced more shots and they sir are not perimeter shots. Schneider is in the top 5 in NHL shots and saves within 15 feet and tops within 5 feet (NHL STATS BUB)...So, before you start belittling Schneider, and pumping up Lou, best you get your facts straight..Lous a great guy just no longer a great goalie.

No doubt, Schneider is awesome but a lot of fans are crazy delusional. My buddy honestly thinks Schneider will end his career as the greatest goalie in nhl history, better than brodeur and Roy and sawchuck and Dryden lol... No joke honestly he thinks that...

i don't think there's a goalie in the NHL right now that will go down as the best ever, next to Brodeur. Maybe Lundqvist, but his team hasn't come close to a championship yet despite their talent.

If your comparing by how experienced some of these goalies are then your right otherwise Schneider is easily in the top 10 in the league right now.


I'm just trying to base it on a one year draft. If you were a GM and you had the pick of any goalie in the league to try to win the cup for "one" year, what goalie would you choose?

I personally would take Brodeur or Rinne, but as you can see by the posts, everyone has a different opinion.

In terms of general ability, this is a debate we could have forever.

Right now though, Cory is the best in the league. He has started the last 10 games, and put up these numbers:


Saves: 251
GA: 13
SA: 264
S%: 0.951
TOI: 544:13
GAA: 1.433 (1.212 w/o Edmonton game)
Record: 8-2-0
Shutouts: 3

If he keeps that up, he'll drag us through one more round than we deserve come playoff time.


If you go by the last 10 games, I actually think Fleury's numbers are better than those. But that's why you can't go with such a short time frame. Each game counts just as much as another.

It's actually a very interesting question and looking at the variety of answers, not an easy one. It's not like 15 or so years ago when you could pick Hasek, or Roy.

I dunno, call me a homer but i think it's Schneider. I believe he is the best goalie in the NHL he just hasn't proved it yet. He will though. I'm not saying he's gonna go down like a Broduer Roy type legend, but I think he's going to have a nice little run as leagues best goaltender. He's the next big thing
