Check out fans’ mixed reactions over Twitter, after the New Jersey Devils placed Cory Schneider on waivers.
Of course, Twitter was utilized for not only the team to officially notify Jersey’s fanbase, but for the sports media world to react to the transaction.
While it seemed that Jersey fans were more than ready to part ways with Martin Brodeur’s predecessor, it was assuring to see some positive and appreciative reactions for No. 35 over everyone’s therapeutic platform.
Here’s a look at Twitter reactions after Schneider was placed on waivers:
In honor of Cory Schneider, here is a thread of the best saves and moments #35 had as a Devil. #NJDevils

I appreciate the positive post “Jules,” but can you at least give credit to ESNY for creating that graphic?
Either way, a nice tribute towards Schneider. Well done.
It sucks that this is probably how Cory Schneider’s tenure in New Jersey ends. He took the baton from Marty with class & humility, played his heart out & should have had more W’s & better talent in front of him…but it’s time to move on. #ThankYouCory #WeAreTheOnes

Now seems like a good time to remind you that, for several years, Cory Schneider was the owner of the highest career SV% in NHL history. Goalies are straight voodoo. https://t.co/Du1SlziXfi

‘People don’t forget …’
Poor Cory, I actually feel bad for him. I hope he comes back strong

“Trade” tweets made an early appearance, as well.
Even if it's not with the Devils, here's to hoping for an awesome comeback story.

People in Twitter dunking on Cory are the worst kinds of fans. Nothing but a consumate pro. Was the only reason we were not a laughing stock in 2015 and 2016. Devils ran him into the ground and will do the same to any goalie if they don't fix the blueline.

The biggest question, who is gonna drive Hughes to the rink? 😂

The bigger question is, “How many times was this joke used prior to this post?”
This really makes me sad 😢 Cory you are an amazing person hoping for you to come back and kick butt somewhere ! pic.twitter.com/lZg3Gbcw9z

Now, that’s an awesome moment.

Something along the lines of “fire Hynes” is almost inevitable over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and any other new social platform that’s available for New Jersey fans to access.

Well, the reality is at this point that Ray Shero can only win so many lopsided deals …

GIFs were popular on the tweets thread, too.

Devils fan may want the curse of Hughes to move in with the team’s next departure, no?
This is sad news for those of us who worked @NJDevils games during Cory's career in Newark. Solid guy, had some wonderful moments and was always classy and frank in post-game interviews I did with him. But it's a move management had to make. A new goaltending era is here.

Schneider was always great with the media—another big pair of shoes to fill for MacKenzie Blackwood.
