Cory Schneider's Decline

Recommended Posts

Anyone been following Cory Schneider's decline?

 

Maybe the Canucks saw something in him that some of us didn't. Back in the day, I was convinced that he was going to be one of the league's best goalies. He was so structured and poised. Now, on the verge of:

Cory Schneider is on his way to extending his losing streak to 19 games (0-16-3).
Gets pulled 10 minutes into the first period after allowing three goals on seven shots. 

(sorry I'm trying to embed a Tweet and it's not working. My CDC talents are not what they used to be...much like Schneids lol)

 

And to think there was a time where Luongo lost his job to him.

I remember Cory cramping in an important game, and Loui had to come in and save us.  Then Cory said he suffered from anxiety or something.  I think Cory had troubles with the pressure of being the number one on a team that was good.  He did have a couple good seasons in NJ, but their team was terrible, so there was no pressure on him to win.

I honestly don't wish him ill and don't like seeing him do poorly... he's actually a super nice guy... genuine... etc etc... But I always thought he was beyond overrated.

 

I personally struggled and still do to this day with anxiety... but my biggest red flag on him was when he got pulled from Game 6 vs Chicago over what is believe to be an anxiety attack. It's happened to me before... and I'm sure it would have %100 happened to me as well on that stage... game 6... NHL playoffs...

 

That being said, he has 6 million reasons every year not to feel upset or be anxious. But mental health isn't fixed with 6 million dollars a year. It sure helps though. Hopefully he can work on his mental health and get back to being a starting goalie. I could be wrong but I believe this was the same problem with Rick Dipietro

 

It's a shame we lost a top 5 NHL goalie of all time because of how management thought Cory was better. I totally understand Luongo's frustration and his eventual departure. The nail in the coffin was Torts Heritage debacle... but how Lui was treated by the franchise when they wanted to push Cory was awful :(

That was game 6 in 2011 against the Hawks after giving up the tying goal on a penalty shot. I think it had to do with "dehydration" (anxiety) in big games. Cory gave up (gave the puck away) a couple stinkers in that game IIRC. Luongo got credited with the loss after Ben Smith scored the O.T. winner.

Schneider's decline can be easily explained if you look at the multiple injuries he has suffered. He is a 32 year old goalie with hip and groin issues. This also leads me to believe he isn't bouncing back. Schneider is done and its one of the reasons why teams and GMs should be very careful giving goalies long term deals that run well into their 30s. Carey Price is really earning that 10.5M AAV with his .900 SV% over the last 75 games or so.

gmmg out gm'd again

 

oh wait horvat is doing really good.

 

Cory was 26 and and would of took a miracle for us to be contenders again after 2013 in less then 2-3years. 

 

I really do feel bad for Cory though, I heard nothing but nice things about him and that includes Luongo. He is likely done after this year. He made a good deal of money so he should be set for life. I think he could get a goalie coaching  gig at some college/uni/minor league team if he wanted to keep busy.

 

MIght be something more personal then just panic attacks though. Relationship issues, death of a family member, new born baby, tough summer, ect... could of all been factors for this year. In any case I send prayers to him to feel comfort, peace, and confidence in who he is and not how everyone will be hating on him for the next while.

True.  He commuted from Point Roberts.  Wasn’t there some story about Gillis putting a bed in Torts’ Office so Torts would be at morning skates, and Torts never used it?
