There is not much risk here, Luongo doesn't exactly steal games for Vancouver.
First of all, no, you don't make that much extra cap space. Luongo's cap hit is $5.33 million (I believe) and if you hand Schneider the starting job he's already going to make in the neighborhood of $2 million on his next deal (short term), so you're saving $3 million for a year or two and then after that Schneider is likely in the $3.5-$5 million range himself. He might even end up with a higher cap hit than Luongo.
Second, yes, Luongo steals games.
