“(Schneider’s) working to be No. 1 and it’s going to be a great challenge for me to take my game to a certain level so we could push each other and do well for the team.”
This is not a new situation for Schneider.
He was originally drafted by the Vancouver Canucks and surpassed Roberto Luongo as the No. 1 goalie in Vancouver during the 2012 playoffs.
In a dramatic plot twist to the goalie saga in Vancouver, the Canucks traded Schneider to New Jersey for the ninth overall pick in a shocker at this year’s draft.
It still appears Schneider will be the back-up, behind Brodeur.
”Those things sort themselves out,” Devils head coach Peter DeBoer said earlier this month. “Marty’s back. Marty’s our starting goaltender and we’ve got a fantastic 1A in Cory Schneider.”
