Brodeur told Rich Chere of The (Newark) Star-Ledger that Schneider "is in the net now to stay."
"I don't see that's going to change any time soon," Brodeur told Chere. "I'll be ready if it does. We have to try and win some games somehow. This is what [DeBoer] feels is the best opportunity to be successful, having him in the net. That's fine. If we win, everybody is happy. Even though I don't play, it's more enjoyable to be around."
Though many around the organization figured this decision would come at some point, it is a bit surprising that it is happening so soon. The Devils have struggled with a 1-5-3 mark through the opening nine games.
