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.
Schneider GP 12 2.58 .912
Bob GP 14 2.59 .907
I don't see much difference much less at the cost of those two.
