Since we assume Tampa Bay wanted Schneider more than any other team, their offer could convince the team to trade back Schneider and look at their other option for a goalie (we will be one week from free agency and months away from the start of the season, plenty options around!).
If you are Colombus and pay X value for Schneider and you get the opportunity to trade back Schneider for X+ you get a plus value for it and it cost you nothing. It could be tempting if the offer is right.
If it doesnt work at all, then its not the end of the world. Why not try?
Schneider will not be able to be poached via offer sheets because Vancouver is expected to elect their arbitration rights on him shielding him from offer sheets. At that point they would trade his rights to the highest bidder guaranteeing the team that acquires him to have an extended time to work on a contract or just agree to the arbiter's ruling.
If Columbus trades for Schneider there is no way they would move him to anyone offering more than what they lost unless a proven goalie or stud comes back, something Tampa does not possess.
And the reason you don't try it is because you can get somewhat similar for much cheaper and easier means.
