Schneider may be close to being a starter on an elite NHL team with a developed defensive system. That doesn't make him a starter on the majority of teams in the league. I'm not saying he can't be a legit starter for any team in the league - but his record isn't some absolute predictor of competence on a mediocre Leaf team. Nor has he played true starter volume. "Back role" is by definition, a protected role within minimal expectations.

You could put a large number of goalies in Vancouver's net and they would look competent. Lot different than putting those goalies into a bottom 10 team.
