It’s pretty obvious to me and everyone in the league that when Cory Schneider shows up, somebody is going to take a bit of a back seat. And, by the way, he’s played 37 games. I don’t know how many backup goaltenders in the NHL have started 37. So I think there is a little hurt pride. We all have good egos, otherwise we can’t do this. I understand that. I have great respect for Marty and I feel for him.” [Star-Ledger]
