I'm still convinced the idea of Cory having "panic attacks" is a nyth, much like Bigfoot or the female orgasm.

His first playoff game was intense and he cramped up. Maybe the pressure got to him a little, it happens to every player at some point in the NHL. Now we're throwing him under the bus for one game but Luongo gets a mulligan for multiple bed-shittings and a crappy regular season?

Ridiculous...

I posted a link to the article a coupla weeks ago, maybe I'll dig it up later.

There's no question his starts were sheltered in his first 2 seasons.

I've argued that before at this site.

But hey, that's standard procedure in the NHL when he's playing back-up to an established #1.

I've also called Schneids a headcase from the get-go

(but then I have called every goaltender in NHL history a headcase over the years).

There actually WAS a similar story involving Messier + Bure after they both left!

Enter Cory Schneider, who, if you listen around town, has either had the flu, foot fungus, mono, a knee strain, a groin strain, anxiety, cramps or post-traumatic stress disorder.

I actually don’t think people exploring the idea of whether Schneider is suffering from anxiety unfair. He revealed to me earlier this season that he didn’t think it was dehydration which forced him to leave the Chicago playoff game two years ago. He came to realize it was a panic attack.

For now, I think exploring this issue as a root of the current problem is misguided. He was forced off the ice for five straight days last week. And that sure doesn’t fit.

>> Jason "Director of Shap and Bounty Bars" Botchford says Cory Schneider knows it's his time to shine, admits to dealing with panic attacks he didn't know he was having.
There's more if you google Cory Schneider panic attacks.

And your sense of humor obviously matches your IQ...

As in yeah, it doesn't exist.

Is that also AV's fault?

Yep you really strike me as the type of guy who scores a ton of ass. :roll:

Seriously dude, you are so fucking lame. :lol:

Meds needs some help with that cushion, why don't you get your pale little skinny ass over there...

laughably close with the King Richard and Kaptain Kirk effects
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Ah yes, the all-important first game of the regular season. Can he ever be forgiven? Time will tell.

It's more like what you guys will be doing when you realize valiant Rumsfeld was right, and fought the lonely good fight on this here message board despite overwhelming (though vastly inferior) odds.

Should happen, I dunno... around mid-April?

Am I the only one that thinks we are going to see a kinder, gentler version of Torts for at least half a season?
