Sergei Bobrovksy & Semyon Varlamov would probably be good benchmarks as to what to expect for a guy who can't win a starting job (although, in the latter case, I suspect the Avs don't make that trade again). Halak would also be a decent benchmark.
The flaw in your argument is it relies on GMs disregarding Schneider being outplayed by a top five goalie in the league who is absolutely on fire. Every analyst worth that salt has cited Schneider among the best young goalies in the league for quite some time. He will garner a better return than Varlamov or Halak.
