I obviously think very highly of Schneider and think that he will be undervalued because he is not yet a proven starter. He's as blue chip as they come IMO. If we're going to trade him I want a blue chip forward signed to a reasonably favourable deal.
I have frequently advocated acquiring Gardiner and using him in another trade, be it immediately or by the deadline, that does address our needs better. As always, Ryan and Perry come to mind.

In any case, these are dependent on how you see the players involved panning out. I like the upside Lupul and JVR have. Perhaps, some minor twinking is needed but I don't feel much. Granted, I am also far more open to the idea of moving Schneider if the return is better.
