We should keep looking at acquiring potential #1's goaltenders through trade. Drafting goalies is good, but its still a crapshoot. Yes, many great goalies were drafted by their teams. But they had no idea what they were getting. You are much, much more likely to end up with a guy who does nothing than get Pekka Rinne in the draft. You could spend half your draft choices on goalies for years and still end up with nothing.

Many more goalies are tweeners who show great promise, and are then acquired and foisted into the #1 role. Some bust (Lindback, maybe), some play Vezina worthy hockey (Anderson).

Personally I would do this deal:

Brassard and Foligno for Schneider.
