Lack is probably worth somewhere in between Lindback and Bishop, either two 2nds or a 2nd + 3rd. Of course once he gets NHL action his value should increase on the spot.
Lack will be treated like Schneider. Well put him in a back-up role, increase his value, then move him when his value is at its highest. Schneiders contract expires just when we can negotiate with Lack, so Lack will likely be used as leverage to get a better deal done with Schneider. Otherwise, maybe Schneider is moved. Who knows, but I don't see Lack getting traded for a few years.
