Schneider Has To Be Signed Before Trading Lou

Recommended Posts

Imagine we get Lou go in a trade and Scneider gets an amazing offer sheet of 7 or 8 millions for 1 year.

Will the Canucks match.....

Not many people know this but when Luongo was traded to Vancouver unsigned and unrestricted he got an offer sheet close to 8 millions for 1 year..He could have been a Detroit Red Wing but no he chose to sign with Vancouver.

Maybe Schneider would accept some lucrative offer from another team.. Would Mike Gillis match a 7 or 8 million offer sheet..from someone as crazy as Toronto or Columbus....in dying need of a goalie..

So Gillis make sure you sign Scneider before trading LUONGO...or you will be...

Th

The criteria for RFA draft pick compensation in 2011-12 is as follows:

  • $1,034,249 annual cap hit or less: No compensation

  • $1,034,249 — $1,567,043: Third-round pick

  • $1,567,043 — $3,134,088: Second-round pick

  • $3,134,088 — $4,701,131: First and third-round pick

  • $4,701,131 — $6,268,175: First, second and third-round pick

  • $6,268,175 — $7,835,219: Two first-round picks, a second and third

  • $7,835,219 and higher: Four first-round picks

Based on last years numbers we would receive compensation between there.

I think we have to have an agreed contract in principle before we trade Luongo... it doesn't have to be signed or filed which would as the OP said reduce our negotiating power in a Luongo trade.

The steps that need to happen:

1. See what salary Schneider expects if he is the starter, the going rate for a 1st time starter would be $2.5-3.5 million and probably a 2-3 year term

2. As long as Schneider isn't asking for a $4+ million contract you then talk to Luongo and get a list of teams he would prefer to go to

3. If Schneider is asking for a big contract then you trade him instead, because one of the main bonuses to keeping him is saved cap space.

4. Poke around and explore what return you could get for each guy.

5. Decide which deal is the best and pull the trigger

6. If it is Luongo moving, then you formalize the Schneider contract.

All this should happen before draft day.

Trading Luongo would be a big mistake and would just feed into the idiotic segment of our fan base. He's a proven goalie that can play a full season, and play well year after year as well as deep into the playoffs. Schneider has proven he can be good while playing 30 games, that's ALL. Dont add to the goalie graveyard hype!

Choice

1) Schneider gets trade and luuu stays.. same situation as price and halak. and they made good decision and i have faith in MG to make right decision

2) lu gets trade and schneider gets signed ( not full season experienced goally + tremendous canadian media pressure)

Choice is all yours Vancouver fan base.

This post is full of absolute crap. Firstly, no one would send an offer sheet to Schneider for that much money...why even discuss this. Secondly, you can't send an "offer sheet" to an unrestricted free agent as you determined. Lastly, that offer sheet from Detroit never happened.

Who do you guys think is going to take on that 10 year albatross of a contract at $5.3M? Nobody!! Some of you are acting like teams are lining up to take on his contract and others think you're going to get top players in return. If I'm a GM I wouldn't tie up that much money. As for your GM, that would be admitting a major mistake only 2 years into the deal to sign him and then trade him. Luongo isn't going anywhere - he is staying in Vancouver.

If it's Toronto, dont match...we'll get the leaf 3-4 1st rounders....all top 10 LOL

But seriously...Luongo/Schneider will be traded before the draft. Anyway if we sign Schneider first, then the value of Luongo drops, since the others teams will know we have to get rid of Luongo now.

But if we trade Luongo first, then Schneider will ask for a better salary.

Depend how you see it.
