Canucks Resign RFA Goalie Cory Schneider

Superstaaaaaar!

The man speaks:

"It's a different role than I've been used to playing, I've never really had the backup job," he said. "But any time you get a chance to play in the NHL, especially behind a guy like that, it's an excellent opportunity and I'm going to make the most of it.

“I want to be just as good as Roberto is when I go in for him so we maintain that level in goal. It's a challenge, but part of being pro and you've got to start somewhere before hopefully moving on from that role at some point."

************************

From Matt Sekeres on the Twitter:

Canucks re-sign G Cory Schneider, Roberto Luongo's expected backup in 2010-11. Top prospects had played 10 NHL games over two seasons.

Mirtle and TC Carling confirmed and canucks.com just posted their release as well.

We'll post more on the contract details when they filter in later. Make that five signings in the past seven days for Mr. Gillis.

We just looked at the goalies yesterday; re-signing Schenider is the definition of a no-brainer. Now does he become Luongo's true back-up or will he be moved?

*Update* It's a 2-year extension at $900,000 per year, tweets Bob McKenzie, and it's a 1-way deal. Say goodbye to Manitoba, Cory. (h/t missy)
