And it's not like Gillis didn't discuss this with Schneider when they signed the contract last summer, I bet GMMG told Schneider and his agent that he's going to be patient with shopping Luongo and that it could take the whole season, but promised Schneider the starting spot for the long term plan for the franchise.
I'll be frank. I would rather play for Toronto than Vancouver were I Schneider, unless I am given a guarantee Luongo is gone by x. Why? No professional athlete wants to warm the bench constantly no matter how often he says the right thing publicly. Toronto may be nowhere close to as successful a team but as a goalie, you want to play - becoming part of the solution.
