Blackwood called up, Schneider to IR

Recommended Posts

Wow.  Literally were just talking about this in the other thread.  I guess this means Cory's being sent down.

Excited to see Blackwood, and glad to see Shero do what needed to be done.

lol kept him on IR all season then suspiciously he was all ready in time for a tune up game or two before the playoffs where he played just about every game. That was like a 1980’s NFL type roster move

Because they didn’t cut him?

Any move that keeps him off the ice right now is not a terrible move IMHO.

Does this mean he can be sent to Bingo for a "conditioning stint" when his injury has cleared up and doesn't have to pass through waivers?

How else can they send him down for "conditioning" stint w/out putting him on waivers? Also, isn't there a limit on how long (or games) can "said" conditioning stint last?

I believe that is correct. Just like last time.

Yes, but passing through waivers should not be a concern at all.

They should be putting him on waivers if he isn't hurt.  A conditioning stint is only 3 games, and they can apply to the Commissioner for 2 more games, but goalies don't play every game.  He'd probably get in 3 starts if this was the plan, and they can't do this for 2 more weeks.  It gets them through the holiday break I guess.

Does anyone want to see Cory before the end of the holiday break? I'm not anxious to...

This has to be a huge blow to Cory's Ego, Its absolutely the right move but being put on IR for a mysterious injury (if it is fake)  has to really suck. Wonder how that conversation went? Ray "Schneids, looks like you have a abdominal injury! Schneider, No I don't Ray,!! Yes YOU DO!"

Now what? Conditioning in the Bing, and if he gets lit up there? Season ending abdominal strain????? What a mess.

Corey Crawford went down with another concussion last night. That's terrible.

HOWEVER boy oh boy do we have an offer for you, Chicago!!

I think his ego has been non-existent for quite some time. Losing 197 games in a row will do that to a goalie.

Yes I agree but saying it can't get worse? a mysterious injury? Everyone is going to question its validity. If there is a career left for Cory I think a new start would be best for all.

I agree, it has to hurt. But what is the alternative? Keep running him out and losing winnable games? If you're making the decision to tank, that's one thing. But if you're trying to compete, you can't have him on the ice right now. 

I think the best that can happen is you give him a break, he comes back with something to prove, puts together 4-5 good games, and you trade him for whatever you can get.

This is some of the best news I've had all season with this team.  Cory shouldn't play again for us.  We need to see what Blackwood can do.  If he's AHL only, then look to the draft.

There is a league wide shortage of top end goalies right now.  I mean, how much confidence do you have in guys like Renne, F. Anderson or Halebuyk to win cups?  IMHO they all suck.

I would draft mobile defensemen high, goalies low. It seems to be the trend now.

You're not going to find out if Blackwood is "AHL only" this season...there won't be enough data to know for sure. 

re:  Cory, though he can be bought out, I'm sure the Devils aren't necessarily in a rush to have $2 million in dead money over each of the next six years (though they would get $4 million in relief in each of the next three seasons)...I'd do it, but it ain't my money.  They're going to see if he can be righted before giving up on him completely...you probably haven't seen the last of him just yet.

Correct. Even if he stays the season, what's he gonna get, 5-8 games?

I also agree with this. Both sides clearly need a re-set. 

i still refuse to believe that Cory simply lost his ability to play. I'm sure part of it is in his head at this point, but I still think he's hurt and has not fully recovered. He may never, who knows. But I will not be one of those people who think trading for him was dumb, or that his contract was dumb, because I still think it was the right move at the time.

Why would you say that would be a terrible move? At worst I see it as is an inconsequential move to avoid starting Cory in the upcoming back to back.
