from Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun,
The fact is through all the craziness of the past couple of years, Luongo and Schneider became and remain good friends. They still talk regularly.
“I am obviously keeping tabs on him and seeing how he is doing,” Schneider told reporters at Rexall Place, where the Devils met the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night. “You don’t root for many guys outside your team, but he is a guy that I hope the best for just because of the kind of player and person he is. He is someone I think is easy to root for. Not on Tuesday night. But again, we are still friendly and we try to support each other.”
A little more than three months after the stunning draft-day deal that rocked his professional life, Schneider did not seem to be in the mood to do a lot of reminiscing about his time with the Canucks or talk about his emotions in the wake of that trade.
The message Schneider delivered on Monday, and one he will likely repeat when he meets with reporters before Tuesday night’s game in Vancouver, is that he has moved on. He was a Canuck, but now he’s a New Jersey Devil and is just fine with that.
In fact, Schneider tried to insist he really hasn’t given much thought to his return to Vancouver, when he will stare down the ice and see Luongo in front of the Canuck goal.
