Schneider is younger and doesn't have a terrible case of the yips.
Plus, Luo's love from Vancouver fans has seemingly begun to wane.

Luongo might be 33, but goalies can be pretty damn good until 38.
Despite the contract length, Lou's contract is pretty decent and we've got him locked up.
Luongo is a better goalie than Marc Andre Fleury and Corey Crawford, and yet those goalies won cups with tremendous teams in front of them. Perhaps we can do the same with a Schneider deal?

It will also fetch us cap space, out from under his life time contract, away from the perennial issues with the guy and a potentially prime netminder 7 years his junior.
The whole picture dude.

In all seriousness though.......
1) Goalies can be good until the age of 37-38. Our "window" is within the next 1-3 years.
2) Schneider will fetch us MUCH more in return
3) Schneider will be getting a massive pay raise sooner than later anyways (eliminating the cap space from a potential Luongo deportation anyways).
4) Luongo is 90% as good as Schneider and will fetch like 20-30% of what Schneider would fetch us.
