You're crazy if you think anything that's happened in Vancouver so far this year has altered the value of either goalie.
The longer Lou holds the #1 job, and there is only ever one #1 don't kid youself, the worse this could play out long term. If it goes into yet another season, it becomes even worse, IMO. Athletes while spoiled are proud people, and eventually one will want to play and let it be known publically. Once this happens it does unfortunately lower said players value. I am not saying that puts them in a bad situation this season, but if it happens next season because Gillis doen't find a trade he likes Schneider with only one year left is not as valueable as he is now.

*note* i am not in anyway saying schneider is a bad goalie, lol
