There have been discussions between Cory Schneider and the Devils regarding a contract extension beyond next season, but nothing will be done until there are reasonable assurances that he will be the team’s No. 1 goalie by playing about 60 games per season. Schneider told The Star-Ledger a decision on a potential extension does not hinge on whether Martin Brodeur returns to the Devils next season, simply on whether he is viewed as the club’s long-term No. 1. “Not necessarily. That’s out of my control, but that’s part of the discussions,” Schneider said. “Not just him, per se, but anybody who they would want to bring in or call up. It’s a discussion about if they want me to be the guy going forward, we have to figure out that part of it. “It’s not directly centered around Marty. We’ll probably find out in a few weeks what is going to happen.” Aside from confirming there have been talks with general manager Lou Lamoriello, Schneider would not reveal any details. “We’ve spoken a little bit. We had the usual talks at the end of the season,” he said. “Mr. Lamoriello said I’d be a priority. It would be very un-Devil-like of me to discuss any negotiations, but both sides have talked and we've made it known what we’d like to do going forward.
