Split the season or a similar amount to what he played last year. We will always ride the hot hand. Therefore, whoever plays better consistently would stay in net longer. Schneider could very well be the "back-up" again. It may not be ideal but Gillis is a patient man and he may gamble that one one of Toronto, Florida, Chicago or whomever desperate in the event of lackluster goaltending. It may come back to haunt him however I certainly see the logic if present offers are low.
