Right now, I wish we had Schneider instead of Rafalski. The shot on the power-play makes up for all his faults. When he scored I immediately missed him on the team. Only one player on our blueline has a respectable point shot on our PP and we need at least two.

Going into game 7, who would be more dangerous on our D corps?

Rafalski is better overall. Schneider is more dangerous on the Powerplay.

So when Schneider is back with Detroit and has a s***ty game, you'll be the first one to say, boy I sure wish we had Rafalski. What a joke

Raffy is better. At this stage, Schneider has a better shot, and that's about it.

Rafs has been money since the Olympics. Schneids was in the minors this season.

I'll take Rafs.

I did not like Schneider. I often thought he shot too much, instead of sometimes looking for a set-up that could lead to a better scoring chance. People give Rafalski too much s*** around here and he does make some mistakes, but I think he is the perfect partner for Lidstrom on the power play. Wrist shots are much more accurate and easier to deflect and it goes along well with Lidstrom being the slap shot guy on the other side. I wish they would leave Rafalski out for the whole 2 minutes on the power play because we need that right-handed shot from the point.

Bottom line is, Rafalski is not our problem. He wasn't today and he hasn't been since he's been here. Maybe he isn't worth 6 mil, but overall I think he has been very good for us.

You got to be kidding me. NBC said it themselves. Schneider is only useful on the PP where he has time and space to get his shots off. Rafalski is so much more reliable at this point in their respective careers.

Agreed. Raffy = 3 Cups; Schneider = 0. Does Raffy come with a few downsides? sure. But overall he has fit in our system well - and was an upgrade over Schneider. I even liked Schneids as a Wings, but Raffy is better..
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

When we had Schneider I always thought of him as one of those guys that could never take you to the promise land I feel the same way about Bertuzzi but Rafalski the guy can and has won.


I'll take a winner over a looser in any game 7.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

This is silly, no offense. Schneider has a hard shot, and that's it. Rafalski's shot isn't as hard, but it has a greater chance of getting through and is far more deflectable. Further, Rafalski is of use everywhere on the ice whereas Schneider's use ends beyond the power play.
