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.
I'm probably in the minority but I'd trade Luongo for a low return and hang onto Schneider even if the return was significantly higher. I'm like the poster above who sees Schneider as the real deal. And that is even though I see Gardiner as the real deal too. He's going to be a stud defenceman IMO.

To me, JVR is basically the same as Luke Schenn who I feel we could have traded Luongo for and Lupul is a year from free agency (I know we get a conditional first) and has had some massive consistency and injury issues. Schneider sets us up in net for quite a while and contrary to many on here I don't think that good young goalies are easy to find or develop.
