I think it makes the problems worse (than if they were moving Schneider). Schneider's contract is shorter and less $...they will be able to command more favourable trade terms. With Luongo they may be forced to eat some of his salary (or take back salary in a trade) - even though GIllis keeps insisting that won't happen (although, who knows if he has a job much longer). Or, they maybe forced to give away Luongo for nothing (which obviously won't affect their cap space...but an egomaniac like Gillis might not go for it).
