Cory Schneider Trade Rumors

cory-schneider-trade-rumors

Trade rumors continue to surround the Vancouver Canucks and their backup goaltender Cory Schneider for the 2011-2012 NHL season. Schneider who is about to become a restricted free agent, makes $900,000. Starting goalie Roberto Luongo makes $6,716,000 per season.

Schneider's goaltending for the past couple of seasons has been equal to and on some occasions greater than Luongo's goaltending. He is considered to be the best backup goaltender in the NHL and he is looking for a starting role on a new team.

The asking price is steep for Schneider - a first round 2012 NHL entry draft pick. The Columbus Blue Jackets, Toronto Maple Leafs and Phoenix Coyotes are considering making a deal with the Vancouver Canucks.
