When the New Jersey Devils landed Cory Schneider in a trade at the draft from Vancouver it was clear what their intention was for the future. Less clear was their plan for the present specifically this upcoming season. Schneider is a starting goalie in the NHL at this point of his career. The problem is the Devils already have a starting goalie and he's kind of a legend in the Garden State. You might have heard of him; Martin Brodeur? He's past his prime but he's still there and it's hard to kick a guy like that to the curb. So that's the dilemma that the trade placed upon Devils coach Peter DeBoer; how will he handle the goaltending situation? Who will be the starter? Speaking with Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record DeBoer made clear what the plan is in net.
