How Much Will Schneider Get?

45 posts in this topic

If Luo goes how much money and for how long of a contract does the Canucks offer Schneider? My personal feeling is $3.75 for 3 to 5 years. Thoughts?

If they trade Luongo than schneider can easily get 3.5 - 4 over 5 years. He's only 26 years old and will be 31 when the contract is up. I think it would be wise to lock him up considering how goaltending comes at a premium nowadays. Plus If he turns "superstar". $3.5-$4 over 5 years will seem like a steal

We'll probably see a small cap, short term deal. Something like 2 years @ 2.75per or 3 years @ 3 per. The longer the deal the higher the hit. This is beneficial for both Schneider, and whichever organization(including Canucks) holds his rights. Allows cap flexibility for a few years, then when Schneider's contract expires, he is primed for a big pay day.

15 million for 5 years, 3 million per year. Higher than both Carey Price ($2.75 million/year) and Steve Mason ($2.9 million/year)

A 2 year contract at 2.9? he hasn't played more than 30 games in one season yet, and if he even better at that point, give him like 6.0 for 5 years, because then he really deserves it

If you base it on this year and if MG decides to keep him then i would have to guess somewhere around 2.75mil to about 4.5mil depending of course on any other moves and possible cap issues, tough question lots of variables.

3.75-4 is my guess. They should sign him for like five years or something.

And what happens if Schneider's agent Mike Liut plays hardball and demands $6M+....then what?

What if Mike Liut tells the Canucks that Schneider has outplayed Luongo this year and with that in mind he demands a raise over what Luo gets?

If that happens, any cap space that some are counting on to sign a FA is gone.

Be careful what we wish for because Schneider is a RFA and offer sheets could very well screw us from having the cap to go after an impact player.

Sign him for 12 years at a cap hit of 5.33

Tricky tricky situation this year with CBA expiration. How does Gillis negotiate and state with confidence the offer he wishes to make (say 3.25mil/year) then finds out on Sept 15th that the cap ceiling drops by 6 mil? Then how, if we go to arbitration with Cory, does an arbitrator state with any confidence what he should get? There are a few other goalies in the same situation this sumer that could see arbitration, or be settled soon after midnight July 1st, but their respective GM's are in the same boat...do we sign based on current revenue sharing percentage or is everything on hold until we learn what that new figure will be? I wouldn't want to be a GM with impact RFA's on my roster right now with a looming re-negotiated cap figure hanging out there. The safe bet is a lower hit for a shorter term, then once a UFA, get the bigger bucks on the table. Gives us a safer evaluation period as well. So I'm gonna say 2.750 over 2 years.

Schneider gets signed before either goalie is moved.
