Lets see Schneider, carry the load, be the starter for a year and play well in the playoffs. Smith has done that, granted only once, but it is one more year then Schneider. Maybe we just disagree, I don't see Schneider as being more attractive then Smith, not today.
We've also never seen Schneider repeatedly fail. It's never happened. We've seen Smith be succesful in one season.

I would be shocked if there was a single GM in the NHL that did not rate Schneider over Smith. Totally shocked.
