The more likely scenario is because Ottawa didn't think trading someone who up to that point was a minor league goalie (albeit one with good stats picked up over 5 years in the AHL) would have much chance of directly hurting their team in the standings like Vancouver was thinking about if they'd dealt Schneider, a much more proven commodity, inside their division.
