I prefer that to the op as a Canucks fan. We have good long-term replacements for Edler and Schneider. While I don't like the idea of replacing Kesler with a pending UFA in Zajac.
Devils don't need Schnieder though, and it's not like they'd trade Kovalchuk, a guy who fills a much bigger need than Schnieder, for him. Edler's a nice piece, but it would leave the Devils offense very shallow.
Brodeur and Hedberg both aren't leaving until after 2013-2014, when their contracts expire. The plan was to have the youngsters develop and take over then, even if they weren't ready, the Devils will probably just sign a UFA goalie to play alongside one of them.
Acquiring Schnieder or someone like them just makes our goaltending prospects useless in a sense, it's like we are giving up on them.
Oh and whoever said Schnieder+Kassian=Kovalchuk, what are you on?
