Both sides are unrealistic, will settle somewhere in the middle and I think will be done by an arbitrator. If I had to guess, I think the arbitrator would side with the inexperience and the cap hit will end up being in the 3-3.5m range.
....Arbitrator? That means we will only sign him for a year or two. If we move Luongo we will be locking Schneider up longterm. I'd expect him to sign a deal at a cap hit of around 3.75mil for 5 years.
