Schneider and Luongo; Just the stats, sir

  • Great post Cam;
    One exception Strength of opposition. It’s complex but I found Cory actually played against slightly easier comp. could explain/account for slight diff. in even strength save%.We are all waiting for Cory’s regression re: pp save % should hit hard/unless he has special talent?

  • Chris.

    Excellent information.

    So, we can (possibly…) explain away the slight differences in a few stats, but, does anyone have an explanation for the weaker Goal Support Cory got: 2.79 v 3.09 ?

    Does not seem to be an insignificant difference.

    Makes me wonder whether the Canucks are:
    i) taking it easier when Cory’s in net?
    ii) playing down to the competition (assuming he’s being protected to a degree) ?
