Axeman's Grind

So what's up with Cory Schneider lately? Tuesday night aside, his performance has been lackluster to say the least, getting pulled in back-to-back games. It probably wouldn't hurt for Pete DeBoer to give his starter a night off. Schneider has started all of New Jersey's 15 games so far this year and while I agree your best players have to play, this is a bit out of the norm.
