    Stupid poll question. Schneider is going to play a fraction of what Luongo does. Plus, ESPN knows jack diddly about hockey. Why are we pretending like they are the NHL go-to?

  • Blair

    I find it hard to agree with some of ESPN’s opinions. They are basing this off current play and they rank a guy like Ray Emery who hand an amazing season 14th, and Craig Anderson who basically carried Ottawa 7th, yes in the top ten but to far down by what I think. I wouldn’t worry about what they say too much, have faith in Lou. And I hope Schneider has a great season as well.

  • Blair

    Meant to say 24th in that for emery.

  • Cory Schneider

    I will

    Agreed! ESPN are complete fools. Buzz should just make a list.

  • Matt

    Brodeur saying Schneider will be the starter in ‘a couple years’ is just so stupid. He is so much better than brodeur at this point in their careers. It’s a business– move aside Marty. And I love Luo, but Schneider is also clearly better. Schneider could easily win a vezina one day.

  • Rich

    These guys also picked Edmonton to win it all last year.

    Now, require team sports help! Team sports
    helps players think in terms of the team as a whole; the actions on the soccer
    field will ultimately affect the team, not just individuals.
