Is it worth giving up Schneider for Ryan Murray? I think a better trade for both teams would be Schneider for Jenner and Savard (other pieces thrown in).Jenner would slot nicely onto our 3rd line for the 13/14 season and Savard could role into Salo's slot once he retires. in 13/14 we could possibly have an effective 3rd line centre and number 4 dman for under 1 million each. This would open up a lot of space to spend elsewhere.
We would also have Eddie Lack as back-up, who could potentially be as good as Schneider.
Not a horrible idea, but when you consider value for value...
Schneider = Possible franchise goalie. Somewhat proven
Jenner = Possible two way 3rd line center. Un-proven
Savard = Possible 3/4 offensive d-man. Un-proven
We know way more about Schneiders development, and what he'll likley become... A top teir, and possible franchise goaltender. I think we need a player of similar value in return. Someone with at least the potential of having a franchise label on them. Neither of the players youve suggested have this label.
I do like Jenner a lot though, and it'd be nice to snap up Jensens centerman from Junior, and watch them develop together. Perhaps he could be had if we added to the deal...?
Schneider, Raymond, Tanev, 1st
...trading Tanev opens up a space for Justin Schultz...
