Cory Schneider said he always wanted to sign a multi-year deal with Vancouver but would have mulled an offer sheet if presented with one after July 1.
As a restricted free agent, Schneider would have been exposed to a predatory offer sheet if he was unsigned on July 1. And there was all kinds of noise out of Toronto he may have got one from its GM Brian Burke.
"Not sure what would have happened but you'd have to listen if something was presented to you," Schneider said.
"(But) first and foremost, it was never our intention to seek out an offer sheet.
"I know people threw that out there quite often, but I always said I enjoyed it there in Vancouver. It's a a great place to play and a great place to win so I wasn't necessarily ever looking to get out of Vancouver."

VANCOUVER - The defence finally rested for the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night, but it it didn't matter. They still won.
The Anaheim Ducks built a 4-2 second-period lead -- and chased Vancouver starter Roberto Luongo in the process -- but couldn't hang on as the Canucks stormed back to claim a 5-4 shootout win at Rogers Arena.
Luongo was yanked, to considerable cheers from the home crowd, at 7:03 of the second period when Devante Smith-Pelly scored to make it 4-2.
He allowed four goals on 15 shots. Cory Schneider blanked the Ducks the rest of the way, but only faced nine shots.
After the game, Schneider expressed his feelings about the harsh treatment Luongo occasionally receives from the home-town fans.
"I mean, it's getting old," Schneider said. "I'm glad they like me and they support me, but he is a guy who has done a lot for this team and this city and I think he deserves better than that."
1. I find movies about ex CIA, Navy SEALS, Special Forces Members, irradiated carnies, etc… that take jobs as chauffeurs completely unbelievable unless they’re transporting some kind of Asian private school girl out of danger.
2. Trying to fold a fitted sheet is my own personal, Hiroshima. So I don’t even try.
3. Two dudes fighting? OK. Two ladies throwing down? Gold, pure gold.
Just when we thought the Boston Bruins / Vancouver Canucks rivalry had mellowed a little bit, this happened:
Milan Lucic’s girlfriend, and high heel enthusiast, Brittany Carnegie took the Bruins / Canucks rivalry to the next level. Some thoughts:
So, umm, first… I don’t think “fingered” is exactly the right term here, I mean, I’m not going to lie, my, Bruins/Canucks...
