Devils trade #9 pick in 2013 Draft to Vancouver for Cory Schneider

342 posts in this topic

I like this trade. Devils were looking at a huge hole in the most important position in the game and went out and acquired a proven commodity

I'm confused. Why would Vancouver trade Schneider to get the chance to draft Nichushkin and then draft Bo Horvat? Don't they read message boards?

Why Vancouver made that trade, many of us will never know

Back from the draft and watching the replay now. So awesome hearing Dreger say that a bunch of teams were shocked that the Devils got Cory for so little. Edmontons offer apparently blew the Devils offer out of the water but Vancouver didnt want to send Cory to another Western team. Was also funny hearing the TSN commentators call the trade a "heist."

I'd also like to point out that while Schneider's stats are very good he didn't play in a vacuum. Vancouver's offense is better than ours and their D is as good if not better than ours.

I'll feel a lot better about the "goalie of the future" when Lou signs him to an extension after next year. Not going to be happy if they gave up 9th overall for 2 years of Schneider. Would've liked the deal better if the Devils added in their 2nd and also got back Van's 24th overall. Schneider has never played more than 33 games in a season, which I feel like would help inflate his numbers. Still a big upgrade over Brodeur and Hedberg but I'm not able to get as excited about this as others at this moment in time.

Vancouver fans should be happy getting Horvat and Shinkaruk in their 1st round.

 

Hopefully Lou doesn't go "status quo" with 8 D again next year and actually makes a trade or signing for someone who can actually score a damn goal.

Great Trade for the Devils. Upgrades our goaltender situation immediately. Our next 2 years in goal will be solid. After this trade, my confidence in Lou has grown a lot, and I firmly believe Lou wouldn't have made this trade if he didn't believe Schneider wouldn't sign an extension or re-sign after his contract ends. As Lou said, Schneider is the goalie for the present and for the future, which shows he believes he will re-sign him.

 

IN LOU WE TRUST

Well put.  I also think Vancouver did pretty damn well.  Horvat, Shinkaruk, Cassels, and Subban.

I like the trade for both NJ and Vancouver.  I'm curious how the team transitions since I think it's pretty clear at this point Schneider is better than Marty, and Marty does not seem like someone willing to step aside easily.  I also wonder if the fact that the Devils are going to forfeit their first rounder next year played into the decision making at all.

 

Also FWIW the Sharks played the Canucks last year in the playoffs and I thought Luongo outplayed Schneider (who was hurt) in the 4 games they played.

will we have room to sign him after his two years are up?

Yep, Marty's 4.5 million will be gone by then.

And other players contracts like tallinder, Fayne etc. There will definetely be space, space will not be the issue.

I really believe Schneider will be back after his 2 years to be the number 1 goalie for years to come.

Great trade. We picked up an elite goaltender for a draft pick, albeit the no. 9 pick.

It’s an interesting move, I was hoping that we would somehow trade back in to the first round but I guess we didn’t have the pieces.

 

I really like Corey Schneider, and have wanted him on the Devils for a long time as the successor to Marty, but at the same time it was disappointing to pass over some talented players at forward.

 

The deal does solve a problem for the here and now though, and it was a frightening prospect heading into next season with Marty and Moose both back there, neither of them is capable of holding down the workload that would be required.

i dont have too many Vancouver fans on my facebook but the few i had were freaking out lol they are all jumping off bridges

The amount of freaking out I've seen amongst Vancouver fans makes me consider this trade a ridiculous success for the Devils. You have people saying the Devils are their new team. People saying this is the worst trade in Canuck history rivaling the Neely trade, etc... Lou won yesterday.

Don't know if you saw Gillis' comments after Lou made his, but Gillis' GM-speak basically came off as "Don't kill me, I know everyone is going to say I should've been able to get more..."

 

And Lou came off about as giddy as someone like Lou is capable of. 

 

And yeah, Vancouver fans are FURIOUS about this.  Some of them are starting to try to see the bright side, and are backing away from the ledge, but in general they are PISSED about this, and are really roasting Gillis. 

 

Not that it's our problem, but I just wonder how the Canucks get Luongo's head back in the game, because that pretty much has to happen now.  And what do the Canuck fans do?  Do they boo him at the home opener, just because?

Can't boo a guy like Luongo.

 

The problem to me with what the Canucks did is that they're a win-now team - the Sedins aren't going to be young again, Kesler's body won't hold up for much longer, Luongo's likely on the decline, etc.  If they shipped #9 elsewhere for young players that could help now, that might make some sense.

The problem is the lack of cap space and that ownership did not want to buy out Luongo. I don't know what kind of cheap impact roster players you could get for pick 9.

I think the thing that Canucks fans are most pissd about is that the team prints money, but ownership was too cheap to bite the bullet and buy out Luongo, but keep the better goalie. That and Gilles majorly screwed up at last years draft.

It clearly wouldn't do them any good to boo him...just hard to tell who the fans will direct their anger towards...it's clearly been dysfunctional lately, but Vancouver, Luongo, and everyone involved are going to have to find a way to make this work, especially since, like you noted, the Canucks are very much a win-now team.

I'm very pleased with this deal, but I'm not certain we got the better of Vancouver's goalies.
