Plan A for the Moose, I guess, if the plan for Schneider is for him to back up Luongo.
They signed him to a contract. There would be no reason to loan him back to his SEL team unless there was no place to play him in North America. They are going to want him to work with Ian Clark and their coaches and training staff.

Most NHL clubs don't choose to leave their European prospects in Europe. They will do so if they are yet to sign an NHL contract or if they are under contract to a Euro club team, but this is usually not the first choice. If you have a prospect, you want his development under your own control as much as possible.
