Columbus will be interested and we do have a load of prospects.

Brassard, Brule, Voracek, Russell, Mason, Methot, Lindstrom, Picard, Mayorov, Legein, Pineault, Tollefson,....

Of course some of those might not be on the table, but some would be..

We don't need Schnieder at all and what rebuilding team gives up a high first?

Brad Richards for Luc Bourdon and Patrick White?
Chris Gratton for 2nd Round Pick?
Top 5 pick for Cory Schnieder?

Did you even think about this before posting?

Well I figure if Nonis is stupid enough to add a 8 million dollar center to produce 70 points he may as well get an incentive for adding on a monumental contract to his roster. Morrison is capable of adding 20-25 goals a season and only has a cap hit of 3.2 million per season.

And Schneider is more qualified at this point to do so as compared to either or both of them?

You must be a former GM to be able to tell how far a 21 and 19 year old goalie will take a team you clearly know nothing about.

Schneider has more potential then both of those goaltenders in my opinion, I am not saying he will be the savior of your team but it would be wise to add more depth to your goaltending position since its obvious that your team in dire need of a number one goaltender now and for the future.

I don't think Brad Richards will get that much back in a trade.

He's a 70-80 point player making 7.8 million dollars and has a NMC so he can pick where he wants to go. That eliminates more than half the teams from the bidding right there...

I wouldn't want my team to even offer on Richards(at his salary). Each season he is relying on the PP to generate more and more of his points, and what's with his shooting %, yuk.

Somewhere along the line Bourdon became one of the most overrated young defensemen in the league right now.

Forget Richards at that salary, totally overpaid.

I'd much rather take a shot at St. Louis.

I'd like to see the Kings acquire Richards somehow but the usual suspects aren't available -

Kopitar
Brown
Frolov
O'Sullivan
Johnson
Hickey
Bernier

The Lightning need goal tending NOW not 2-3 years from now. Adding Schneider to the stock pile doesn't help this team survive the next season or two. I'd hazard a guess that Feaster is comfortable with Boutin, Ramo, Helenius and possiblly Koshechkin next season. They don't have a place for another goal tending prospect. The team has stated that they will acquire a #1 goalie this summer. I don't think Schneider fits that description.
