Goalies are a dime a dozen. Stud dmen are hard to find.

Simple math. Teams need only one goalie. They need at least 4 good dmen. There are plenty of good (or potentially good) goalies stuck on NHL benches and in the minors/juniors. They are routinely available. Just last year, Islanders picked up Roloson and Biron as cheap FAs. Two former all stars. Both played very well for them.

Schneider should be a very good goalie. Who's to say Koskinen, Nilsson, or Poulin won't also be good. Meanwhile, experts rave about Hamonic.

If Schneider is the real deal, VAN would be better off trading Luongo. He obviously has more trade value, and it would free up cap space to get the dman OP wants.
