Why are you like this?

Jack now has a family to support. Way to go Cory.

Mike Brown offers up contradictory bullet-points, mfitz interrupts him to make a weiner joke, SD tells him that he isn't racist he just thinks PK should use a different water fountain, Neb00rs flies i

I'm sure he'd get the option since his salary is on the books either way, but prob more likely he ends up on LTIR than reporting to Bing right?

I was wondering the same thing, so then his cap hit is gone, and his career is effectively over.

It gets a better goalie on the roster, that’s what it accomplishes. They don’t save bupkis on the cap till the now inevitable buyout this offseason.

True.  That's what I figured.  No disrespect to Louie, but gotta be a big blow to Cory's morale and self esteem (if he had any left), when a journeyman like Domingue is brought up and thought to be the better option than you at this.

1) I would expect that if Cory gets his game back, they'll call him back up sooner rather than later.

2) re: Jack @ Cory's house - i would expect that he'll either stay there as Jill is like a 2nd mom to him or he'll move to Travis' house which is essentially around the corner. If he doesn't, I'd imagine Travis will be his ride until Cory gets back anyway. He's not moving to JC or Hoboken this year to be by himself or with one of the other young guys.

from what I read, just sending him down to Bing means something like $4.75M of his 6M will count towards our cap, so a little bit of savings.  If someone claims him, the new team takes his full cap hit.  I have a feeling he will clear.

Edit: It is actually $4.975M and not $4.75M

And kudos to Shero for acquiring Domingue...not saying that Domingue will be a brick wall in net, but it's now very obvious that Ray was preparing for this, and that there was no way that he was going to be so patient with Cory this time around.  I understood why the Devils tried to be last year (for a number of reasons), but they couldn't take the same approach this season.

Oh true, that's good then.  

Yeah, no way in hell someone is taking him, unless there starter is hurt and they're super thin at goalie, which I'm not sure any team has those two problems at the moment.

But if this is beginning of the end of Cory in NJ, I do feel a bit bad for him.  He got way more sh!t than he ever deserved from our fanbase.  To this day there is a larger-than-it-should-be mongoloid portion of our fanbase who often say he was "never good" even though he single-handedly prevented us from any realistic shots at either McDavid or Matthews in their draft years.

With that said, we can't just continue to rattle off losses in hopes he somehow figures it out.  It sucks but it has to be done.

Good observation, and this also makes you think that Shero has a plan in place for Hall coming up.

Really depends upon how well Blackwood and Domingue play.  Huge opportunity for both of them, really.  But yeah, if one or both falter and Cory's suddenly shredding it in Bingo, he'll become relevant again in a hurry.

This is how Domingue plays that matters as well as Cory. Blackwood isn't going anywhere unless he's hurt plain and simple. He's the starter from here on out I'd imagine.

It's already been the end for Cory. Anybody with eyes has been able to see that Schneider has been trash and finished for a very long period of time now. Over 100+ starts really. There is no recovery. He will never regain what he was 2016 and before. Very sad to see but some guys just lose it. He's had some physical issues and that's likely contributed to it as well.

He did finish last season strongly enough to garner some hope.  But yeah, impossible to expect that he'll ever be what he was, or to have any consistency going forward.  And the bad news is that when he's been bad, he's been "Can't play him" bad.

I'm very hopeful with Blackwood, but we still don't know what he is just yet.  Yeah he should absolutely be the starter for the foreseeable future (he's done enough to get that chance, given his competition), but if he really slumps hard for an extended period (man would that be a disaster), and Cory's hot in Bingo, the picture can change again. 

Of course, there would be nothing better than for Blackwood to fully seize this opportunity and have us wondering who his backup will be in the next few years.  Of course we all got so spoiled by having Marty and enjoying his insanely long prime...even if Blackwood does have a terrific 2019-20, doesn't mean that he'll become a consistent and steady #1 over the next five years (crossing my fingers as hard as I can that he might though...would be nice for a friggin' goalie in the Devils system to develop and be a long-term answer).

They save $1 million but most of that is just going to Domingue who’s taking his place anyway.

I feel very badly for him.  He's always seemed like a genuinely good guy.  Never bitched about his first season even though he was clearly the better goalie, though it was the other guy that Lou and deBoer gave the "White Knight" treatment to over and over again.  He played extremely well for some rotten teams his first few years here, and never complained then either.  But as we know, predicting decline is not easy to do.  We've seen the ballplayer who's 29 or 30 and has been terrific for most of his career and gets a high-priced 5 or 6 year deal...and then suddenly is never that same player again...seemingly overnight.  It does happen.  And unfortunately it truly does seem like Cory went from being an awfully good puckstopper to mostly awful very very quickly.  And there's just not much reason to think that he'll somehow snap out of this...it's just been going on too long now.

it sucks for Cory and i know everyone here is frustrated with blowing leads... and the blame was often put on everyone involved, players and coaches. Not that they were always amazing but goaltending was often the main problem. We'd have a way way better record with slightly better goaltending.

So thats encouraging in a way.

News Flash - Riveting sh!t!

 

If it came from Chris or the other female whom I won't name, I'd be more upset. But we know Amanda is a talking piece for the team, trying to draw people to care about the every day goings. She's is far down on my disdain list for the coverage of this team.

I didn't have a huge  issue with it I thought it was semi funny but everything about the guy pisses me off. At this point cutting his hair is what he's best known for this season and that's a bummer.

I just kept thinking how the Devils fired their newly hired social media girl and her replacement is putting up "Breaking News!" bulletins about Wood's hair.

Can't make this stuff up.
