Schneider's allure has more to do with contract length than amount. The hit can easily fit under Montreal's cap, and is only for one year; if he doesn't pan out, so be it. Anaheim is also in a situation where they need to move somebody, and Schneider is most likely going to be the odd man out; I don't imagine the compensation being very high.
Meszaros, on the other hand, would require a lot of compensation; a first, second, and third round pick, as well as the five+ million a season to sign him, plus the potential of losing key players next year. Some will say, "Well, pack your bags, Koivu," but he may not be the only one to leave in such a situation, either.
