To be honest, I am a bit disappointed about him so far. He has been mostly solid, but that’s it. I was expecting a top notch goaltender who could rob an occasional game for us. I am missing the “wow moments” from him. Was I delusional of what to expect from him?

He has a 2.21 gaa and a .917 save % over 5 games, when you consider that we lost four of them, that's not bad.

Corey's been good..not great but good, he can get better along with the team, and if he doesn't his contract wont handcuff the team...like some others.

Too early to start feeling anything about him yet.  For one, kinda hard to steal games when your team is shutout, TWICE.  In his other two losses, the Devils scored one goal and two goals for him.  The only game where he got much support was the Rangers win. 

 

I think he's going to be fine, but he's not exactly playing on a barnburner here.

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?

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 give Cory a B+ for the season so far

 

He will get better as the season goes on, and he hopefully will get some goal support!

To be fair Cory isn’t exactly pleased with the way he has been playing so far, he knows there is work to do in his game as well as the teams.

I have been impressed so far. He has kept the team competitive in a couple of the losses.

I still think him and Jagr have been our best players followed by Brunner and Ryder.

 

He's been pretty solid so far it's just his defense scrambles around like chickens with their heads cut off.

How can you not be impressed with how he's played so far this season - he's one of the only freakin bright spots on this roster.

 

Unrealistic expectations.  He's given the team a chance to win every game he's played, which is something you can't say about Marty at this point.

When you look at all the goals he's let in throughout his games played, I think only last night's are goals he could have or should have had. I think in the other losses, especially Pittsburgh and Winnipeg (two shutouts), you have 2-3 goals that are just downright unstoppable. Defense left him out to dry, or in the case of the Winnipeg game, the puck straight-up went off of Greene's arm and into the goal. Last night was maybe his only subpar game, otherwise I feel like he's played exceptionally well and gave us a chance to win in every game he's played in.

Have you noticed this getting worse this season? It drives me up absolutely insane. It's as if our defense is told NOT to clear the front of the net. Sometimes BOTH of our d-men are in front of the opposition forwards, I can't understand why neither of them are knocking the forwards out of Cory's or Marty's way, it's drives me bananas... I never noticed it be as bad as I've noticed it this year.

 

Has anyone else noticed this? I can't contain myself, I'm screaming at the TV. Last night, the first goal, a shot goes toward Schneider and rebounds to his side and I think both forwards were BEHIND Salvador and Fayne. Fayne could do nothing more than shove him from behind and help him tap in the rebound. I don't understand how both defenders find themselves in front of the forwards like that, am I crazy?

2.21 GAA and a .917 save% on a team that hasn't played terribly well.  What exactly WOULD impress you?

He seems to play better the more support he has. The only games hes played that theyve put up more than a goal he looked solid. Played well in Winnipeg too, though.
