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.
