You'll never win with Schneider

 i’m not so sure there’s a catastrophic meltdown going on. Maybe Schneider have something going on, maybe he doesn’t. I thought you played very well last night. He wasn’t the issue, they completely shut down our offense. For all the talk about our forward depth, nobody got anything accomplished last night and they failed to pick up Corey a night where he only gave up two . 

 I can’t argue that his previous nine starts we’re a good effort. But he kept them in that game last night, and they could not get it done on the other end.But he kept them in that game last night, and they could not get it done on the other end.

The catastrophic meltdown was directed at the team blowing the 9 point lead, not Schneider exclusively. Last night I agree, h did a good job.

True. Seems like a fun exercise:

If Taylor and Nico both have 50 goals and 100 points next year, and Palmieri has 30 and 70, we will have a very solid top line. 

Hahaha, although they are ''ifs'' I feel the chances of Cory being Cory again next year are way higher and way more probable than Keith being stellar like he's been continually.

What are the chances of KK scoring some more Chipotle related tail?

I know the overwhelming opinion is that Cory's job is safe going into next season, but I'm not so sure. He seems to not handle big time situations all that well, and I wonder how he'll respond with there being a legitimate goaltending question going into next season. Even if he gets the assurance that the job is his, everyone knows he'll be on a much shorter leash, and a few bad games the net will be up for grabs. 

I would've stuck with Kinkaid for game 3, but obviously we got everything we needed out of Cory the last two games and am not questioning the call at all.

Ah, I don't know about that. But I certainly think it's his to lose, which to me is very different.

He will have to prove to the coaching staff that this is not the case.  That could prove difficult; he was never the #1 in VAN, Luongo was, as he should have been.  But a good start in game 5, giving us a real chance to win in this elimination game, will help.

If nothing else, maybe we have the 1A/1B situation people were saying we needed.

Those seem like ginormous “ifs”

I should clarify. I meant if Cory can keep himself on the level he was on before his collapse, and Keith can land somewhere between where he started the season and where he ended the season. I don't expect Kinkaid to suddenly be a .933 goalie or anything.

Agree with the above and am going to expand on it.

I'd say their roles are a little less defined now, the way the season unfolded.  From now on I think it's Cory's job to lose (due to track record and money)...but if he has 2-3 rough games next year, and KK has a good one, I don't think Cory gets right back in there nearly as easily as he would have previously.  If Cory hits a little slump, KK will get a chance to roll now...and that means Cory might have to wait several days or even weeks to get the majority of the playing time again.  The gap has narrowed.

He certainly did not hurt his chances due to his play in the TB series.

Cory earned the net back and it isn't even a question, imo. What Kinkaid did in the last month and half in the season can not be overlooked. He got the job done, when a combination of Appleby, Lack and Schneider could not. In fact, I would not be shocked if he garnered a few Vezina votes. There is just one simple fact that can't be overlooked: he is Keith Kinkaid. 20+ games of hot play does not erase several seasons of average and inconsistent play. I, and I'm sure many fans, will be eternally grateful that he played such a major role in getting us back into the postseason, but he is what he is. The results were there but there were so many instances when the other team would miss empty nets, pucks would just squirt wide when hitting him or he was out of position and the puck just hit him. He gets credit for making these saves, but I think his play was certainly worse than the numbers indicate.

Aside from the obvious, the best part about this playoff series is that Schneider got a win and stringed together three and a half marvelous games in high leverage situations. It was only a couple of months ago when he carried us in the first half of the season. Yes, he had a couple of rough outings before his injury but when you get hurt and play inconsistently, how the hell do you get into a rhythm? If Schneider can stay healthy, which is easier said than done lately, he is still an above average goalie. You can not say the same about Kinkaid.

He certainly got his starters' job back, unfortunately he still hasn't rid himself of the black cloud over his head as a Devil.  OF COURSE when he finally plays well the offense goes back in the tank.  It just seems as if it's never going to work out for him here - when he plays well the team doesn't score, and when he doesn't then the team scores enough for him to still lose one-goal games.

We will see come training camp and the start of next season.  By the the end of October, who the #1 is should be evident.  The team will need to see who is the man.

I think Cory definitely proved he is the #1, but he needs to stay healthy and on top of his game.
