That should be the high water mark for Cory on a deal where he gives up three UFA seasons, IMO.
Good call Dave. Halak comes closest to Schneider RE numbers in the AHL & NHL at the time of his signing.
The goalies listed in the OP don't come close number-wise nor pedigree-wise.
Actually Schneider ranks higher than Halak pedigree-wise as he has dominated at every level...
There's no need for either side to play any games because a fair salary is fairly evident
(I think you adjusted too much for inflation though you lazy SOB).
I think it is fairly obvious Schneider would sign a 4 year (or so) contract for about $4mil per. Therefore, sometime before July 1 Luongo is traded, followed by Gillis signing Schneids. OR Gillis trades Schneider before July 1 to a team whose GM knows Schneider would sign a 4 year (or so) contract for about $4mil per (pretty sure all GMs know roughly what a fair deal would be).
Canucks COULD keep both if there were no fair offers, but it’s the perfect summer (supply & demand) to be trading a Top 10 goalie so I just can’t see it. Keep in mind that if HW’s report that Gillis looking to make a bold move July 1 is true, he must have a deal for Lou/Schneids already in place (can’t be makin too bold of moves with $9.5mil tied up in goaltending methinks).
The amount of money Schneider will sign for isn’t the question imesho, it’s which goaltender is dealt from your Vancouver Canucks within the next 2 weeks - prolly sooner than later.
