I can't speak for Schneider, but if I was in his free-agent shoes, the last thing I'd be doing would be re-signing with a team where I'm going to be opening the bench door for somebody else every night for the next ten years.

And, knowing that I was a free agent and knowing that my team knows that I'm a pending free agent, I'd take my team's signing of another goaltender as a slap in my face. To me, that's Vancouver telling Schneider, "we're not going to offer you any kind of a significant raise, and if you don't want to take the role as Luongo's understudy, we'll give it to Lack."

If the Blues don't offer-sheet Schneider at 12:01 AM on July 1, they're either nuts, or completely asleep at the wheel...
