I guess that depends on how highly you value Schneider,
but the return for Edler would not be anything close to some of what is suggested above. If the deep-pocket, contending Canucks can't get him resigned to an extension, it would suggest Edler wants to test free agency.
In that case, the team acquiring him is getting a short-term rental.
Anyway, the Flyers are a poor fit. They have their goalie, for better or worse.
It would be because the cap dropped significantly and they couldn't afford to keep him, nothing to do with spending to the cap. They'll spend to the cap with or without him.
If he was traded before the season I would expect a return similar to Burns, but slightly less due to the shortened season. He returned a #6/7 forward, good prospect and a 1st. Therefore I don't really see where the logic of picks/grinders comes in.
