I'm sure Schneider would help maks some of our significant defensive difficiencies, however, it is only one piece. The other is having a future franchise Center which many of us believe Johansen will be.

Two independent things here. Yes to Schneider, no to moving Johansen from this fans perspective.
So what would be a good goalie to focus in on? Going back to the UFA list I posted earlier, there is not a whole lot out there. Either they are all older, like 34 and above, or career backups. Ray Emery is only 29, and he has proven to be a good goalie in the past. Other than that, not sure if Nabakov day's are past him or not, but he would be the other ok looking one.
