Mathieu Schneider

M. Schneider lands in Phoenix

News: The Canucks have traded D Mathieu Schneider to the Coyotes for D Sean Zimmerman and a sixth-round pick.
Analysis: Schneider wasn't needed in Vancouver after signing a $1.5 million deal this offseason. He might see some time up with the Coyotes but until he starts producing some NHL offense he has no Fantasy value at this time. Zimmerman has yet to play in an NHL game and should also be ignored at thie time.

Schneider sent to AHL

News: The Canucks have optioned D Mathieu Schneider to the AHL.
Analysis: Schneider signed a one-year deal with Vancouver in the offseason while he was recovering from shoulder surgery. Once healthy, however, he severely undercut expectations and was eventually taken out of the rotation by coach Alain Vigneault. That prompted Schneider to leave the team before he was placed on waiver. It will be interesting to see what transpires since Schneider has been a solid Fantasy option through the years.

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider might face quick recall

News: The Vancouver Sun reports Canucks D Mathieu Schneider cleared waivers on Wednesday after being placed on them Tuesday. He might be optioned to Manitoba of the AHL or recalled for Thursday's game against the Blues since Kevin Bieska was injured on Tuesday against the Coyotes. However, Schneider would have to go through re-entry waivers and the 29 other NHL teams would have a chance to claim him. The Province is also reporting that the Canucks are trying to trade Schneider.
Analysis: Now that the Canucks are in a bit of a dire situation, teams might be more willing to take on the veteran defenseman to keep him away from Vancouver. Schneider signed a one-year deal with Vancouver in the offseason while he was recovering from shoulder surgery. Once healthy, however, he severely undercut expectations and was eventually taken out of the rotation by coach Alain Vigneault. That prompted Schneider to leave the team before he was placed on waivers Tuesday. It will be interesting to see what transpires since Schneider has been a solid Fantasy option through the years. Keep tabs on his progress in the coming days.

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider might retire or be traded

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider might retire or be traded

News: The Sports Xchange reports Canucks D Mathieu Schneider, 40, remains out of the lineup for unspecified personal reasons. Speculation is increasing that he wants a trade, or may retire, because he is unhappy with his limited playing time.
Analysis: A trade seems most likely. The Canucks could release him, but they risk losing him to a division or conference rival and getting nothing in return. With his career approaching its end, Schneider is only likely to report to a Stanley Cup contender anyway. He has been slow to recover from offseason shoulder surgery and it seems all that missed time in the preseason is becoming detrimental to his conditioning. Take Schneider out of Fantasy lineups until further notice.

12/28/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider missing in action

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider missing in action

News: NHL.com reports that Canucks D Mathieu Schneider remains out of the lineup because of personal reasons.
Analysis: Schneider has been very disappointing for Fantasy owners since drawing into the Canucks' rotation after missing time recovering from shoulder surgery, so his presence likely hasn't been missed. Continue to ignore him in all but deeper leagues.

11/30/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider plays in consecutive games

News: The Sports Xchange reports D Mathieu Schneider wasn't expected to play back-to-back games for the Canucks, but with Saturday's and Sunday's contests the 40-year-old was in the lineup for both home games. It might have caught up with Schneider, who along with partner Christian Ehrhoff looked bad on San Jose's first goal. Don't be surprised if Schneider sits out one of back-to-back games in New Jersey and Philadelphia on Wednesday and Thursday, with Shane O'Brien, who has quietly been a healthy scratch for seven straight games, finally drawing back into the lineup.
Analysis: Schneider has been very disappointing for Fantasy owners since drawing into the Canucks' rotation after missing time recovering from shoulder surgery. The fact he missed training camp has hurt him. He might need a few more weeks until he is up to pace. Don't lose hope yet on Schneider, who can be a high-end Fantasy option.

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider sends home second goal

News: Canucks D Mathieu Schneider scored a goal, tallied an assist and finished at plus-2 during Saturday's game against the Avalanche. Schneider recorded his second goal 8:22 into the second when he beat Craig Anderson on a slap shot.
Analysis: Schneider only recently returned to the lineup after being a healthy scratch for a few games. The veteran blueliner has been kind of slow to regain his form after starting the year on IR. However, once he gets going, he can be very good for Fantasy owners. Don't lose hope yet on Schneider, who can be a high-end Fantasy option.

Schneider gets a night off

News: Canucks D Mathieu Schneider was a healthy scratch Sunday against the Avalanche after the 40-year-old veteran played his first four games in six nights after missing the start of the season recovering from summer shoulder surgery.
Analysis: We doubt Schneider will be a regular in the press box and was just given the night off Sunday for precautionary matters. He has one goal in his first four games with the Canucks. Once Schneider gets up to game speed, we expect him to be a reliable Fantasy option.

10/28/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider opens Vancouver goal account

News: Canucks D Mathieu Schneider scored his first goal since moving to Vancouver when he slapped one home from the point on the power play in Tuesday's loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Schneider got three more minutes of ice time than he did in his Canucks debut, so he's clearly making his way back to 100 percent. If he continues to thrive this week, get him active in most formats for Fantasy Week 5 (Nov. 2-8).

10/26/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider makes Canucks debut

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider makes Canucks debut

News: Veteran D Mathieu Schneider, 40, made his Canucks debut Sunday against the Oilers after starting the season on the injured list following summer shoulder surgery. He didn't have a point in 14:51 of ice time and finished at even. He also failed to take a shot.
Analysis: Schneider looked a bit rusty at times on Sunday but that can be expected since he missed training camp. Once Schneider is up to full speed, he should be able to contribute regularly for Vancouver. Remember, Schenider is one of those players that does well on a contender. Schneider has high-end Fantasy potential when healthy.

10/24/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider expected back Sunday

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider expected back Sunday

News: Canucks D Mathieu Schneider, who had shoulder surgery this summer, is expected to play against the Oilers on Sunday, the soonest he is eligible to play after starting the season on the long-term injury list.
Analysis: Schneider might be getting up there in years, but he should feature heavily with the Canucks this season, especially on the power play. Get him active in a good amount of leagues for Fantasy Week 4 (Oct. 26-Nov. 1) if he does end up playing Sunday.

9/29/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider, Demitra on LTI

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider, Demitra on LTI

News: The Vancouver Sun reports that Canucks RW Pavol Demitra and D Mathieu Schneider will start the season on the long-term injury list, meaning they'll miss at least the first 10 games and 24 days.
Analysis: Schneider should be a valuable offensive blue-liner when healthy, so just continue to stash him in all formats for the time being. As a decent low-end starting forward, Demitra shold also be benched until he's ready to return in late October.

9/22/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider practices with Canucks

News: The National Post reports that Canucks D Mathieu Schneider practiced with his new team over the weekend for the first time. Schneider is recovering from May shoulder surgery.
Analysis: Schneider has landed in a good situation with the Canucks. He is going to be a valuable offensive blue-liner when healthy on a top contender, and if we have learned anything from Schneider's career, he does his best work for winners. Now, he just has to get back to 100 percent. Schneider should be considered an injury-risk Fantasy sleeper Draft Day, but might not be ready for opening night.

9/11/2009

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider might miss start of season

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider might miss start of season

News: The Sports Xchange reports Canucks D Mathieu Schneider, who signed a $1.5-million free agent contract in August, is recovering from the same shoulder surgery that is expected to keep forward Pavol Demitra out until at least mid-October. The 40-year-old isn't sure he'll be ready for the start of the season. "Until I get into a full contact scrimmage or game, you can't tell," said Schneider, who was signed to boost the Canucks' power play. "So far, nothing has led me to believe I can't be ready but, at the same time, I don't want to be playing at 80 percent on Oct. 1. Obviously I don't want to rush anything. I've been skating and shooting and I feel really good so that's the first step. The second step is to ease my way into contact."
Analysis: Schneider has landed in a good situation with the Canucks. He is going to be a valuable offensive blueliner when healthy on a top contender, and if we have learned anything from Schneider's career, he does his best work for winners. Now, he just has to get back to 100 percent. Schneider should be considered an injury-risk Fantasy sleeper Draft Day.

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Canucks bring in veteran Schneider

Mathieu Schneider

Canucks bring in veteran Schneider

News: The Vancouver Canucks have signed veteran free agent defenseman Mathieu Schneider to a one-year contract. The team announced the deal on Friday, when it also acquired defensemen Christian Ehrhoff and Brad Lukowich from the San Jose Sharks.
Analysis: The 40-year-old Schneider is coming off shoulder surgery. He had nine goals and 32 points in 67 games while splitting last season between Atlanta and Montreal. He has 221 goals and 724 points in 1,264 games during a 20-year career with eight NHL teams. This move is great for Schneider, who always seems to do better when playing on a contender. However, the biggest issue remains how will he play coming off surgery? Schneider should be considered an injury-risk Fantasy sleeper Draft Day.

Mathieu Schneider

Blues showing interest in Schneider

News: The Sports Xchange reports the Blues have been rumored to have interest in veteran defensemen Mathieu Schneider and Sergei Zubov. Zubov has apparently gone off the market, signing a contract with Russia's KHL. Blues president John Davidson said both Schneider and Zubov "are players coming off injuries. Zubov hasn't played the last two years. Schneider, when is he going to be 100 percent? Do they want a one-year or two-year deal? Would they come to your city? That's where it's all at."
Analysis: The Blues signed Brendan Bell recently, so it seems Schneider could no longer be on their radar. Schneider would be a nice fit for the Blues since they are contenders in the Western Conference. Schneider always does his best work for winning teams. For instance, he struggled with the Thrashers in 2008-09 before excelling after being dealt to Montreal. Schneider can still be a useful Fantasy option, although there is some injury-risk involved.

Schneider to be ready for camp

News: Montreal D Mathieu Schneider underwent arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder last week. The 39-year-old was first injured April 4 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, forcing him to miss two regular-season games and two playoff games. He is expected to be ready to play by the start of training camp.
Analysis: Schneider had five goals and 12 assists in 23 games with Montreal after returning to the Canadiens in a Feb. 16 trade with the Thrashers. Monitor his status over the offseason as he is a free agent. He is a high-end defenseman when healthy but his advanced age and this surgery is obviously a concern.

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider misses Game 4

Schneider misses Game 4

News: Montreal defensemen Andrei Markov and Mathieu Schneider missed Game 4 of the Eastern Conference playoff series against the Boston Bruins because of injuries. Coach and general manager Bob Gainey says before Wednesday night's game that Markov is sidelined with a knee injury. Schneider has a sore shoulder, and needed to leave the morning skate. Both players watched as Boston finished off the series sweep Wednesday.
Analysis: Schneider's season really turned around in late February when he was dealt from Atlanta to Montreal. He always does better when he plays on a contender as opposed to a bottom feeder. Track Schneider's offseason progress before taking a flier on him Draft Day. He is a free agent and where he signs will heavily dictate his Fantasy value for 2009-10.

Schneider scratched for Game 3

News: Montreal LW Alex Tanguay and D Mathieu Schneider were both injured and unable to play for Montreal on Monday in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quartefinals against the Bruins. The Canadiens, already without injured top defenseman Andrei Markov, announced moments after the opening faceoff that both key players were sidelined by upper-body injuries.
Analysis: Schneider is not much of a goal scorer as a defenseman but he did record 32 points this season for Montreal. The Canadiens are on the brink of elimination down 3-0 in the series so they'll need him in Game 4. Schneider was traded from Atlanta mid-season and went from being a low- to a high-end Fantasy option. He will once again be a free agent in the offseason, so where he signs will be key in determining his 2009-10 Fantasy value.

Mathieu Schneider, D, PHO Schneider scores in first game back

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider scores in first game back

News: Defenseman Mathieu Schneider returned to Montreal's lineup Thursday against the Bruins after missing two game with an upper-body injury. He was originally expected to miss the remainder of the season. Schneider had a goal to make it 4-3 with 3:07 left in the second period. It was his ninth goal of the season.
Analysis: Schneider now has two goals and five assists during a seven-game point streak. He has totaled five goals and 11 assists in 22 games since being acquired in a trade from Atlanta. The trade has taken Schneider from being a low-end option with the Thrashers to being a must-start option with the Canadiens. Throughout Schneider's career, he has always benefited from playing on a contender. He will once again be a free agent in the offseason, so where he signs will be key in determining his 2009-10 Fantasy value.

Schneider, Markov out another game

News: Montreal lost top defensemen Andrei Markov and Mathieu Schneider to injuries in Saturday night's 6-2 loss in Toronto. They were both unable to play on Monday and won't play on Tuesday either. "The players weren't available tonight and won't be (Tuesday night), but I have no more information to give you about the injuries to Markov and Schneider," coach Bob Gainey said.
Analysis: Markov leads the Canadiens with 52 assists and 64 points, and Schneider has rekindled his offensive game since coming over in a February trade from Atlanta. The duo make a formidable offensive pairing when healthy and both pass as high-end Fantasy options. They should not be active in daily leagues on Tuesday.

Mathieu Schneider

Markov, Schneider out Monday

News: The Montreal Canadiens will be without D Andrei Markov and D Mathieu Schneider for Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators. Both players, the team's top two point men on the power play, could also miss Tuesday night's game against the Rangers in New York. Markov and Schneider were injured in Montreal's 6-2 victory over the Maple Leafs in Toronto on Saturday night. Schneider has what the team calls an upper body injury while Markov is believed to have injured his right leg.
Analysis: Markov leads the Canadiens with 52 assists and 64 points, and Schneider has rekindled his offensive game since coming over in a February trade from Atlanta. The duo make a formidable offensive pairing when healthy and both pass as high-end Fantasy options. With this latest news, they are now very high-risk injury starts for Fantasy Week 27 (April 6-12).

Habs expect injured defenders to play

News: The Sports Xchange reports the Canadiens took one giant step closer to a playoff berth with a 6-2 win over Toronto on Saturday, but they received a scare when defensemen Mathieu Schneider and Andrei Markov both left the game with upper-body injuries. However, coach Bob Gainey said he didn't think either player was seriously hurt and he expects both players to be available when the Canadiens play the Ottawa Senators on Monday in Montreal.
Analysis: Markov leads the Canadiens with 52 assists and 64 points, and Schneider has rekindled his offensive game since coming over in a February trade from Atlanta. The duo make a formidable offensive pairing when healthy and both pass as high-end Fantasy options. It appears safe to consider them low-risk starts Week 27 (April 6-12).

Mathieu Schneider

Schneider extends streak with goal

News: Canadiens D Mathieu Schneider scored a goal and finished at plus-1 during Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks. Schneider ripped a power-play goal past Cristobal Huet 16:43 into the third period. He has one goal and four assists during a four-game point streak.
Analysis: Schneider has totaled four goals and 11 assists in 19 games since joining the Canadiens. We aren't shocked with Schneider's recent production because we figured moving to a contender would spark him game. It has and Schneider is back to being a high-end Fantasy defenseman.

Schneider helps out twice in OT win

News: Canadiens D Mathieu Schneider assisted twice in Tuesday's OT win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Schneider is doing everything with the Habs he couldn't in Atlanta. It's kind of sad that Schneider only plays well when he is on a contender, but since he is back with Montreal, he is reverting to being a high-end Fantasy defenseman.
