Mathieu Schneider is one UFA you don't hear much talk about. The Wings have stated they will try to sign him back but I think they may not be able to reach his salary demands.
Schneider had a very good year with the Wings, many believed he had more of an impact than Lidstrom. He is also the kind of defensemen the gms will be looking for, good first pass, plays on the pp but does have a problem of turning over the puck at critical times.
It should be interesting to see what salary slot he fits in.
