Can I ask you a question Mr. Shero? What the hell are you waiting for? Did you even see the game last night? Scott Wedgewood let up ZERO goals. A big fat goose egg. Completely shutout your former team. If that's not enough to ship an injured Vezina caliber goaltender out of town then I don't know what is. That's one goal allowed in two games. I don't know how your math is, but mine says that a GAA that good was the only thing the Devils needed to make the playoffs this year. Yup, it might sound ridiculous, but an AHL goalie with 120 minutes of NHL experience was the savior all along and we had him playing meaningless games in upstate New York.
Sorry Cory, but the NHL is a "what have you done for me lately?" league, and you haven't done anything lately while recovering from the injuries you sustained singlehandedly carrying this team well beyond it's expectations. Thanks for all you've done in the past, but don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. We have this 23 year old whose record speaks for itself. Can't be wasting our time with a 30 year old goalie in his prime that only has two years of flawless starting experience under his belt. Not when he's such a valuable asset. Everyone knows that the position that always returns the most in a trade is goaltender. We will totally get fair market value for someone that has been quite possibly been the best player at his position all year. You guys know how this goes. The more consistently great a player is the better off you are trading them. Think about it. There is nowhere to go but down. Cory Schneider has finally peaked and we need to make sure he is wearing a different colored jersey when he inevitably falls off that cliff in the distant future. The first step to rebuilding is completely destroying the foundation you already have set in place, and you can't tell me that Scott Wedgewood - with his 2 career wins - isn't the perfect person to put in charge of the reconstruction crew.
P.S. Remember when people thought Kinkaid could start? Yeah, this is totally not the same situation.
