Vancouver and Tampa are never going to be in the same conference or division so there's nothing to suggest Vancouver wouldn't deal Schneider here or demand a higher price compared to other teams. Waiting for Schneider to get dealt to a team that needs him to be their starter like Columbus doesn't make sense, the Lightning would probably have to give up more since Columbus would need him more than Vancouver does.
Agree its slightly different situation, but the same strategy can apply.

But we need to assume Tampa want Schneider more than any other team in the league for it. If the team acquiring Schneider want him more than Tampa, then Tampa would never have been able to get Schneider anyway.

So in your Colombus Scenario, if Vancouver offer more to Colombus than what Colombus could be willing to part of to acquire Schneider, they should logically trade him.

If you need an house, pay 150 000$ for one of your liking, but you would never be willing to pay 200 000$ for it. If someone come to you the same day and offer you 200 000$. you are likely to accept and find other option for an house. Especially if you are not in an hurry (summer) and you are one week away from a house sales (UFA)
