If the Flyers can trade Mike Richards and Jeff Carter after they signed cap-friendly long-term contracts, I would not trust any kind of a verbal promise from anyone.
I don't believe there is so much distrust between Schneider and the Canucks organization... The Canucks have been great to Schneider, and Schneider has been great to the Canucks... I see no reason why this wouldn't continue... There's great history and good faith here between both parties...

But, if Schneider is only willing to sign a 1-year contract, Gillis' decision is pretty easy... He should keep Luongo long term, and trade Schneider... Otherwise, the Canucks are probably going to be without any #1 goaltender in the foreseeable future... Something is seriously wrong if Schneider is only willing to sign a 1-year contract... Trade Luongo now, and then potentially lose Schneider next year as an UFA? Seems rather foolish to me, to put yourself in that situation...
