    Ahl plays mostly weekend games. He will get some home time between practices.

    I think Varly gets traded or goes in the expansion draft. Don't know where Varly gets traded to though.

    Would be an amazing comeback story for Schneider to emerge to his old self under Trotz's system.

    I’ll be honest, I had him pegged for an NHL Network role this season.

    No doubt 12k fans per game played mostly in an arena in which 30% of the seats are obstructed views or inaccessible in a location where no one cares about the team is a "better environment." Let's not forget about that winning culture they've had for 35+ years.

    All the best to Cory though, he's a great guy.

    The Islanders haven't played at Barclay's in more than a season. Never going back there either. I dont know where the poster was going with his environment comment but need to say that.

    It's obvious a signing for Bridgeport and a favour from Lou. Who the hell thinks he's going to see a second in the NHL? Lol.

    Anyone else think this is a way to get Schneider into the system for the NYI front office? Maybe Lou sees that potential and wanted Schneider to have a ground floor view before taking him upstairs next year (remembering what he saw with Brodeur in his final season).

    I could be wrong but I do believe Varlamov has an injury history so Schneider does give the Isles insurance

    If Sorokin pans out I do think Lou will try everything he can do to unload Varlamov next summer, thus Schneider might be the future backup

    sorry, can’t see Schneider being a backup. This reminds me of DP trying to prove he could still play. I think Schneider will show he’s done and this is just a courtesy from Lou. Also he gets hurt all the time. If miraculously he became the backup the Islanders would have no depth at all.

    I do think with the condensed schedule, the third goalie might be more important. Schneider isn’t great but I don’t necessarily see better options

    I completely agree. I posted many times he will be back in NHL after many said he is done and will not see NHL ever again. He was actually very good at the end last season. More, I think he is brought to Islanders as a backup, not as a third goalie.

    I'll be honest he was among the last goalies I thought would even get a cheap deal, him and Howard.

    The system and team that the goalie will play behind. Right now, you can’t have too much issue about going to play for Barry Trotz and the Islanders.

    No, just no. Because goalies matter. If he trades Varly, we will pick up a goalie better than this.

    I hope your right. I think the organization needs a youthful thinker. Though I feel Cory was signed as a reclamation project. Maybe if healthy he will have some success in a goalie friendly system. Maybe he's just insurance. Hopefully he's not washed up.

    Howard maybe a better option and that's about it. I have no problem with this move. It's a one year deal on the cheap.

    At this point in his career, practically any minor league goalie without nhl experience is a better option than schneider.

    Schneider is actually a couple years younger than Jimmy Howard. Didn't realize how long he's played in the NHL. Wonder who will give Howard a contract like this one.

    I haven’t seen any confirmation on Schneider signing with the Islanders either.
    Maybe Lou has a verbal agreement in place with Cory Schneider but has other contracts to figure out first.

    Supposedly Schneider Martin and Greene all
    Have agreements with Lou bur are waiting for Lou to make other moves first. Possibly Trading Boychuk and/or Re-signing Barzal/Pulock

    Definitely.

    Why put those three players (maybe a total of 4M?) on the cap when you've got more than 11M you have to have signed fairly soon?
