Lamoriello’s offseason priorities include signing Schneider to extension

Getting goalie Cory Schneider signed to a contract extension is “right on the top of” Lou Lamoriello’s offseason to-do list. But the Devils’ general manager was less forthright about the future of Martin Brodeur, a pending unrestricted free agent. “I think that right now you just take a step back,” Lamoriello said, per The Record. “It was a very difficult situation...

Agent: Cory Schneider will weigh future with Devils when time is right

When the Devils' season ends - next Sunday if they don't make the playoffs - they'll head into an offseason that promises to be very interesting. One of management's biggest issues will be how to move forward at goaltender. Martin Brodeur, 41 and in the final year of his contract, likely will end his great run with the Devils … possibly by retiring but probably...

Devils get 3-1 win over Hurricanes to keep playoff hopes alive

The Devils are still at the mercy of those teams ahead of them in the Eastern Conference playoff race, but you’ve got to believe that the Columbus Blue Jackets are starting to hear some footsteps. Considered dead by many only three days ago when they trailed the eighth-place Blue Jackets by five points, the Devils have cut that gap to just one. Scrambling without several key...

The Answer Is Always Cory Schneider

Going into this season one of the bigger questions in goaltending was who would start for the Devils; perhaps the greatest goalie of all time or Cory Schneider (2 GA, 14 SV, W)? Sounds like an easy call, right? I figured it’d be Schneider. Why else did the Devils bring him in but to grab the torch from Martin Brodeur and run with it? And had anyone seen this guy play in Vancouver...
