Vancouver fans will try to defend this trade, but let’s face it: they messed up. Not even a year after trading Schneider they also traded Luongo, and then their goalie situation was a mess. Right now it’s fine, but it could be even better if they had one of the leagues best goalies. That’s right, Schneider has a career .925 % save percentage, which ranks 2nd in the entire NHL since he began his career in 2008.

He gets no recognition because he plays in New Jersey, but he’s a legitimate star in net. Bo Horvat looks like a fine 2nd/3rd line centre, and that’s good for Vancouver. They need someone like him, but don’t think for a second that he’s a good return for Schneider.
