Schroeder could make it for an extra 300k. The point is, given some massaging, the Canucks are close enough to the cap that the team could remain largely intact. Now if Edler takes less and Higgins takes the same 2m, then it gets even more plausible.
It ain't going to happen. Edler doesn't sign for that cheap, Higgins has already signed a sweetheart deal with us, and keeping both goalies will be a huge detriment to the team's ability to ice a good group of forwards even with a few ELCs thrown into the mix. More imprtantly, I doubt either Schneider or Luongo will want this to run more than this shortened season. While it may be almost, barely possible financially, it is illogical from so many points of view.

If Gillis should keep Luongo for the remainder of the year and the offers still aren't up to his liking in the summer, he'll have to move Schneider for an equally impressive, young forward. Otherwise, cut the cord and take the best offer for Luongo that's on the table.
