Should Schneider be traded?

26 February 2015 - 05:22 PM

I'd like to see what people think about this: now that CS's value is about as high as it is going to be for the foreseeable future, do you cash in on this and turn him around for assets? For example, what if a team that was currently looking to go over the top offered a couple 1sts and a good prospect?

Remember, he is 28. If the Devs can't compete for a SC for another 2-4 years then you're heading out of his prime years and then well need another goalie then anyway. Corey's low mileage offers the hope that he plays at a high level longer, but age will catch up to everyone whether they play the game or ride the bench and time is brutal to goalies.

One last note: LL has a history of buying high and selling low in the sense that we've paid a lot to get talent and often gotten little in return for the talent we have. This would avoid that scenario.

EDIT: btw, this in no way disparages what Schneider has done for us lately. In fact I'd say it is because he has been so pivotal that he should be traded. If we aren't going to be in the playoffs then I'd rather have a better pick. And if we aren't going to have a good shot at a cup then I'd rather get younger, more talented, and deeper.... Even if that means sacrificing someone very talented right now. I'm sure I'll be flamed for this...
