Sure it has.
A year ago Schneider had barely played only 6 games as the back up, mostly against bottom feeders.
Nice try strawman. Starts in Red
8 games in '08-'09 when Luongo was down with a pulled groin. Cal, CBJ (Sanford started), Det (Sanford started), Min, Col, Fla, SJ, Phi (Sanford started)
2 games in '09-'10 Dal, Anh (Raycroft started)
6 games in '10-'11Car, Min, Min, Col, Buf, Chi

Cory could have started on several teams a year ago.

Than an injured Roberto Luongo. Don't ignore the fact that prior to this stint, Cory was not stealing the show either.

Although he's yet to proven he can be consistently good in the regular season and playoffs as a staring goalie, but what I've seen from his ability, along with his resume and pedigree, I think it's pretty unlikely he doesn't turn out to be one of the top goalie of the league.
If smart posters like Coco are feeling like Schneider is the real deal and a better fit moving forward, is it out out of the question to speculate that some in the Canuck organization are starting to lean a little further in that direction?
I don't really disagree with Coco, that makes me smart too, but to make anything more out of who is starting tonight and why is pure Tom foolery.
