There is no way in hell that right now the Canucks could get the 4th leading goal scorer in the league in a trade. They would get far far less. I think that if you would have gone back to them in the summer and told them that you'd offer them a player who would be in the top 5 in goals and top 20 in scoring at the end of February for Schneider that they'd have made that trade and run away laughing.
Well, personally, I never considered Hartnell in a deal...that was just what was speculated in a report. I was a proponent of making a deal for Schneider in general...still am.
