I don't agree that Schneider is injury prone - I've followed his career for the past 20 years and he gets injuries here and there but usually not serious - not like Salo at all who gets injured and he's out 20 games.

Anyway, who cares if a 40 year old Dman on a 1.5M contract misses 15-20 games if he's healthy when it counts?
I care. What if he gets injured during playoffs?

Obviously given his age, the injury factor has to kick in. Remember, he's a year older than he was last season... it's definitely a risk you take when acquiring older players.

But like I said, if it's $1.5 million, then I'm not complaining too much... but this organization really has to get acquire some quality defensive prospects.
