And the board blows up

 

Might as well make a thread where all the reactions and opinions can go, so they don't get jumbled in the general draft thread.

I couldn't get on the board for like an hour, was it blowing up that bad or was it just bad luck on my part?

Anyway, I'm ECSTATIC, it's no secret our goalie prospects weren't that good. The team we have coming back this year was good enough last year, just couldn't catch a break and really got screwed because of the situation with the shortened season. I don't really think you can say anything bad about this pick, and a bonus is Lou absolutely SNAGGED Schneider right from under Torts!

Finally able to post again- GREAT move. I couldn't be more thrilled with this move. We solved our goaltending problems post-Marty in the snap of a finger. Cory Schneider is a legit #1 goaltender. This is a great day for the franchise. And then Lou traded down 3 spots and grabbed a 3rd from Phoenix, another great move.

woah, Lou finally PICKED someone instead of trading picks. The Schneider trade was a work of art, but since, it's felt like his MO the rest of the time was to keep trading down picks til he was force to pick

We got our #1 goalie! It's going to feel weird in the next few years realizing Marty can't play forever. Feel bad for Johan, but its time we address the inevitable.

Good move.  2 years is good. Three is better. Four too much.   

I'll be looking forward to seeing him in net this fall.

Awful, I'm sorry. The only way this makes sense if the deal was already done and Lou couldn't pull back when Nishushkin was available. However good Schneider may be, he can't score goals. And I also note that Marty has yet to be heard from. We, in effect traded a guy who you could pencil in for 20 goals this year, for a goalie who will play 30 games this year, and might be gone the year after next if Lou does his usual mo contract talks until the very end.

This is Jets taking Kyle Brady bad. This is where Lou finally lost it.

A 27-year old Top 5 goalie who addresses a serious issue>>>an unproven prospect. And maybe just maybe Lou is finally gonna leave this status quo crap out the door and do some work in free agency?

Devils have an elite defensive corps for years to come, now an elite netminder.

Mixed feelings about this....I'm glad we got him but only two years left on the deal scares me.

I guess Moose will be bought out?

You're off by miles. The devils got a proven commodity who can absolutely be the starter when Marty retires. You're assuming that nichushkin is definitely going to translate to the NHL. This was a great low-risk move.

You guys are absolute nuts if you don't like this. A 9th pick (unproven) for a goaltender who put up great numbers in the past 3 seasons where our prospects are a long ways away and our tandem are 80 plus years old...wow you guys are crazy sometimes. This is an epic trade and a great move by Lou. I do not see Schneider moving again in two years, he wants to settle somewhere and be the number 1 for a long time.

Daniel, are you serious?  Marty is hardly a lock to play 52 games this season, due to either health or shaky/declining performance...he's a major question mark at this point.  If Marty gets hurt and/or falters (either is a very likely scenario), they have a guy who can take the job and run with it...who knows, that might even happen during training camp and preseason. 

 

Maybe Schneider can't score goals, but he can sure stop them, and a whole lot better than the guys who tried to do that last season.  And he's in his prime to boot.  Hopefully, it will be Marty playing 30-35 games or so (tops) and playing well enough that he can exit the game cleanly and gracefully.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I'm sorry, but no mater how good a prospect may be, you can't "pencil them in" for anything. Schneider has proven himself in the NHL. And if you want to talk about needs for this team, yeah a few goals will help this year more than a backup tender, but for the next ten years, we've extended what's made us such a successful team in the past, goal tending and defense.
