Cory Schneider: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Following up on his fantasic rookie campaign, Schneider did everything possible to cement himself not just as the Canucks’ goaltender of the future, but also the team’s primary option in goal right now. He began the 2011-12 season as Roberto Luongo’s backup but eventually usurped the former Vezina winner and took over the full-time job in the playoffs. Schneider finished the year 20-8-1 with a stellar 1.96 goals-against average and .937 save percentage in 33 appearances. While he couldn’t help Vancouver avoid a first-round sweep at the hands of eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles, Schneider remained excellent in net during the postseason, allowing just four goals in three games while putting up a .960 save percentage. The Canucks have made their commitment to Schneider going forward, inking him to a three-year deal this offseason while trying to find a trading partner for Luongo. As long as Bobby Lou is indeed moved, fantasy owners should treat Schneider as an elite goaltending option heading into the season.
Schneider excelled in his first prolonged stint at the NHL level, finishing 16-4-2 with a 2.23 goals-against average and .929 save percentage while serving as Roberto Luongo's backup in 2010-11. The 25-year-old netminder will once again be back in the same role as Luongo's understudy this season. While he would clearly hold more fantasy value as a No. 1 goalie, Schneider should still manage to see approximately 20 starts for the Canucks, making him a solid option in leagues that value backup netminders.
After dominating the AHL the past three seasons, Schneider is finally getting his shot on the big pond, albeit in a backup role. If all goes right in training camp, the 24-year-old netminder is set to backup Roberto Luongo this season. That will mean limited action for Schneider this season, making little more than a handcuff in one-year formats. But keeper leagues should continue to keep an eye on Schneider as he could be dangled in trades if the Canucks get desperate for a midseason addition.
Schneider is another elite prospect in the Canucks' organization. Other than an eight-game stint in Vancouver while Luongo was sidelined, Schneider spent last season dominating the AHL. In 40 games with Manitoba, Schneider went 28-10-1 with a 2.04 GAA and .928 save percentage. Despite his success in the minors, Schneider's' future with the Canucks is a bit murky. If Luongo is locked up long term, Vancouver will likely opt to ship Schneider out of town. No matter where Schneider finally gets his chance, he's got the chops to be a starter on the big pond and should be a fantasy asset once that opportunity arises.
The Canucks top-ranked goaltending prospect, Schneider dominated in Manitoba of the AHL last season, going 29-12-1 with a 2.15 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. Schneider will compete with Curtis Sanford for the backup role this season, so he could see limited value this season. Roberto Luongo's presence will keep him blocked as a starter for the next couple of years, but keep an eye on him.
Schneider just finished his junior season at Boston College and he is currently over in Russia playing for Team USA at the World Championships. Schneider looked like he could have been on the fast track to the NHL when he was drafted in the first round (26th overall) in 2004, but the acquisition of Roberto Luongo has pretty much put a halt to that plan. Luongo is going to be in Vancouver for a long time, so if Schneider develops as Vancouver hopes he will, he could be trade candidate down the line.
Schneider is the Canucks' goaltender of the future, but with Roberto Luongo locked up for the next four years, that future is a ways away.
Cool and composed is the best way to describe this high schooler ranked as the number seven North American goalie from the 2004 Entry Draft. He has a long way to go to get to the NHL but he may be a number one man in five to seven years if he can change from a flopper to a angles man.
