With Lou "Age is just a Number" Lamoriello pulling the strings, don't be a bit surprised if they invite Khäbibulin for a camp tryout.
I don't see a lot of resources being put into the back-up role for the Devils heading into next season.. especially if they give Cory a big contract. I think Lou would invite a veteran goalie, couple that with KK & Wedge, and let the cream rise to the top during training camp and exhibition.
..the only way Cory dips is if Brodeur returns. There's a high probability that the Devils keep Schneidz long-term.
Even with Marty gone (which seems to be 99.99% at this point), what makes you think Schneider would want to sign long term here?
The team was atrocious this season, and I am sure he is upset with the carousel he had to endure. I think him starting 60-65 games next year would erase the sour taste a bit, but c'mon...he will have his choice of several different teams with similar financial$.....
