Though, from my distant perspective, in a funny sort of way. At the moment, Schneider looks like the highly talented emerging star and Luongo like the competent but no longer consistent back up? On one level, that's great news for you guys indeed, but I doubt it does anything but drop Roberto's trade value even further than it is now (unless Luongo heats up despite diminishing opportunity). Still, to be able to audition Cory with a safety net (Luongo) was good fortune. Schneider's skillful presence certainly may help take the sting out of the diminishing returns that you might eventually have to accept for Luongo.
