Schneider, Hansen sent down 4

Schneider, Hansen sent down

Cory Schneider and Jannik Hansen are both headed back to the Manitoba Moose. The Schneider move wasn’t a surprise given last week’s acquisition of Jason LaBarbera and the return of Curtis Sanford. Schneider showed glimpses of how good he can be, but truth be told, he’s not quite ready for regular NHL duty just yet. He’s best served playing every night for the Moose than playing once a week with the Canucks. The Hansen move was a bit more surprising. With Sundin about to join the lineup, we knew the Canucks had to move a body. I’m just surprised it...

Can Cory carry the load? 6

Can Cory carry the load?

Yesterday, Cory Schneider was named the AHL’s goaltender of the month. The American Hockey League announced today that Cory Schneider of the Manitoba Moose has been named the Reebok X-Pulse/AHL Goaltender of the Month for November. Schneider was 5-0-0 in five appearances for the Moose last month, with a 1.20 goals-against average, a .959 save percentage and one shutout. This on top of TSN’s Bob Mackenzie pimping him out last week: “Cory Schneider is a great young goaltender… people don’t realize this, but he’s ripping up the American hockey league with a goals against average barely above 1 and a...

Flame out

The Vancouver Canucks lost both games of a home-and-home series against the Calgary Flames. It was ugly in a sense that the Flames – and the Minnesota Wild – are now a single point behind our division-leading ‘Nucks, but also, the more offensive style of hockey we watched the first 22 games disappeared sometime between the first and second periods of Thursday night’s game. The Canucks were outchanced and outshot in both games, though truth be told, this isn’t anything new. (They have now been outshot in 15 of their first 24 games.) On Thursday, what was noticeable was how...
