    I am a devil fan and I hope he will have a bright future however the goalie of the future for the devils seems to change every year. They have decent goalie prospects but one doesn’t seem to be able to lock down the role.

    With that he is the one in the position now to succeed especially with Cory not performing up to par. He will be given a lot of chances to prove he can do it so I’d ride him for now

    Bright for me. I see him replace Schneider in 2-3 years.

    if devils dont sign a ufa to share crease with Schneider I'd imagine he'd see 30 or more starts if they see him as a temp answer

    I've said for some time, and I still believe, that the NJ crease is Schneiders to lose, not Blackwoods to win. Schneider is making $6M and they aren't going to just let that sit on the bench in a backup role but stranger things have happened. I just don't see it here, at least not for the foreseeable future.

    I think Blackwood will be an average NHL 1A/1B. I don't see him ever being top 10 producer but he could be a mid-range goalie for sure. The future is looking good in NJ and Schneider is not. I would imagine that Schneider's contract dictates he gets the bulk of the starts this year (~around 50 starts) if he stays healthy but I think Blackwood will put up better numbers in ~30 games. I could see Blackwood being the 1A starter by the 20/21. Another bad year from Schneider could mean a buyout or at best a 1B role on the team or a trade to a cap floor team as the Devils become more competitive.
    Without me, it's only "aweso".
