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.
Please, arbitration cant protect Schneider from offer sheet, it have been discussed and verified 100 times on this forum, Schneider is in similar position than Halak in Montreal and not comparable to Weber. i can give you the link to these discussion if you are interested.
The only way to protect Schneider from offer sheet is to have him under contract.
