The realistic projections for Morin is 2nd pairing defensive dman (god we can only hope he's as good as Luke Schenn) and IMO it's more valuable as a franchise WITHOUT a legit #1 goalie to have Schneider than to add another 2nd pairing defensive minded dman like Morin. In my opinion it's a failure by the organization for NOT trading for Schneider and drafting Morin.
Schneider isn't a proven #1. Hasn't played more than 33 games in a season. A #1 'tender worth the #9 overall better have played at least 60+ games in a season with a good track record. People don't understand how much fatigue goaltenders deal with when they play that many games.
