Why hasn't Schneider signed somewhere?

Trevor Linden Quote Nov. 29th 2012 [Asked if he would return to the game?]
"The game has been with me for a long time, if the right opportunity came about, you never know"
"You don't know this, but Trevor Linden had cracked ribs and torn rib cartilage for the last four games of the 1994 Stanley Cup Final," Cliff Ronning said. "You can't imagine what it's like to hear your captain, in a room down the hall, screaming at the top of his lungs as they injected the needle into his rib cage. Knowing him, he probably thought we couldn't hear. He would then walk into our dressing room like nothing had happened. That was inspirational."

I guess Schneider just didn't cut it, for a starting job on another team. Teams said they wanted Luongo because he is a starter and other teams didn't want to risk it on a backup.
No doubt goalies are being picked up now not so much on pedigree but how hot they are playing at a certain period in time. Bryzgalov to Philly, the rotation of rookie goalies from Varlamov, Neuvirth and Braden Holtby. With this being said I think its a big reason why we have not heard much in the rumor mill (pre lockout) in regards to other teams interest in Schneider NHL teams feel its only a matter of time before they can ride the back of a stud goalie coming out of the farm system.
Also Schneider going to Europe is pretty much a backhanded slap to any Players Unions in any league worldwide because he would be taking jobs from other veteran players overseas.
