He thinks after these starts in the playoffs, he would now want to be the starter. He felt Schneider would rather play 50+games elsewhere, rather then come to Vancouver as a backup .

If your Schneider, would you rather be a backup on a contender or be a starter on a team that is at the bottom of the standings? I'm guessing any goalie would rather play 50/60+ games in a season. Also, if he feels he's a great goalie, then he might feel he could turn the bad team around. Money comes into play as well. As a starter, he will get way more money then being a backup for the Nucks. I hope the Jackets makes a phone call to Gillis at or before the draft. Or a call to his agent on July 1st.
