The Good: Schneider is a fundamentally sound goaltender with superb quickness and agility. He has demonstrated that he can step up in big games. Schneider plays with a tremendous amount of focus and confidence and exhibits his maturity on and off the ice. Schneider is excellent positionally. He does an outstanding job of taking away the lower portion of the net, moves extremely well laterally and with his 6’2 frame covers a lot of the top half of the net as well. He will aggressively challenge shooters and has a quick glove. The most notable improvement that Schneider made in his collegiate career is his ability to control rebounds. It isn’t often that he will give up rebounds and when he does, he does an excellent job of steering loose pucks away from the crease area. Overall, he is a talented goaltender with big upside. Luongo better watch his back, Cory is in the house. He can easily be a starter on many teams, as he has shown during his brief NHL career that he can win games.

The Bad: Sometimes, he goes down a little too quickly, which negates his size advantage. He is still mastering his stick-handling and puck control. He also needs to also prove he can be an undisputed go-to guy at the highest level.
