I still maintain Schneider is no greater then an average to slightly (very slightly) above average goalie. He's in a good stretch right now, but his rebound control has been brutal throughout his time here. He's very slow on net mouth scrambles when he drops into the butterfly and moves slower then most other butterfly goalies side to side. His stick handling, while improved isn't really that good, even compared to kinkaid. My concern is that he's not prone to those big clutch saves when the team needs it.
I don't judge goalies off of their statistics, as if you face majority of easy shots (shots from blue line, soft shots, shots to chest or glove that involve 0 movement), your stats will show you're a great goalie (maybe bc I'm a goalie, i look for other qualities then #s). Then you get to games where you have grade a shots coming, need to make those hard clutch saves and cant, your numbers would still look good based on those other game. Numbers don't tell the full story about any athlete.
Marty was clutch and elite, quick, Roy the same. As much as it pains me to say it Lundquist (while not so much this yr) has been clutch, single handly carries the team, esp when they were in the finals A few yrs ago. He was elite, a level that as of now Schneider hasn't shown (doesn't mean he can't get there, but as of now hes not close).
Also saw before people.saying the 3rd goal against was weak... while It didn't look good, it actually wasnt weak. The puck was shot, banked off Greene to the shooter,who was moving forward to shoot at a bad angle. The goalie (esp butterfly) go down on signs of the 1st shot. It's hard to get back in time, when you can't see the puck bounce off the skate and see the skater still with the puck while being down. He Still came close, but couldnt get it. The 1st goal that night was weak, 2nd and 3rd were on greene.
