Schneider is onboard, what's next?

Now that Gainey has added Schneider, what will be the next domino to fall? Will it be something really big like LeCavalier, or something more like Jokinen from Phoenix? I have read that Kovalev for Whitney was a possibility, but if I’m Pitts, I’d want a draft pick too because of the age difference. With Schneider on board, which d-man becomes expendable? Could Mtl still be looking at Boumeester? If Florida is really willing to move Weiss and Boumeester, would Gainey want them both? At what price?
