Cory Schneider feels that his struggles might have been the cause of Devils goaltending coach Chris Terreri being replaced.
"Last year was just a tough year all around in terms of my performance and how the year went," Schneider said. "It feels real tough to me if, possibly, Chris lost his job because of the year I had. I feel personally responsible for that in a sense, that I could’ve done better, I could’ve played better. That’s never a good feeling to have." Schneider had a 20-27-11 record, 2.82 GAA, and .908 save percentage in 60 games last season, so the Devils decision to change goalie coaches didn't come as a shock. Their new hire was Roland Melanson, who had previously worked with Schneider in Vancouver. That familiarity might help make the transition easier on all involved. Jul 13 - 4:50 AM

The New Jersey Devils have hired Roland Melanson as their new goaltending coach.

Former goalie coach Chris Terreri is staying within the Devils' organization, though his role hasn't been determined yet. Schneider struggled last season with a 20-27-11 record, 2.82 GAA, and .908 save percentage in 60 contests so it's not surprising to see New Jersey make a change here. Melanson previously served as the Vancouver Canucks' goaltending coach and consequently has worked with Schneider in the past.
