Seams very strange to me!
Probably for development purposes. If one of Luongo/Schneider is gone, he will likely fight with Lack for the backup job, especially with Lack's recent surgury, we'll see if he is up to speed in the upcoming season.
Vancouver has done a top notch job developing goalies in the past few years (Schneider could turn into an elite goalie, while Lack, and Cannata are looking really good), and Eriksson probably saw an opportunity to show some teams in the AHL, or possibly a backup job in the NHL.
