Cory Schneider has been biding his time since being the Vancouver Canucks' first-round pick in the 2004 NHL Draft.
It appears his wait is over.
Despite winning the Presidents' Trophy in back-to-back seasons and going to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2011, the Canucks are expected to have a major change at arguably the most important position on the ice this season. Schneider, 26, likely will take over for Roberto Luongo as the No. 1 goalie in Vancouver after signing a three-year, $12 million contract this offseason.
