Thats about what Sheldon Brookbank makes this year and over half a million less than Michael Frolik.
I don't think they move Schneider, even if that's the smarter thing to do - I think the are hell bent on moving Luongo (and he seems to want out, too)...and they will have trouble moving Luongo without taking on (or taking back) salary.
