He's a starter and even if kept in Vancouver will still get more of the starts over corey.
Anyways, I wouldn't avoid him at all. He's dropped down my draft list signifigantly and like most canucks fans I'm a schneider fan now but this doesnt change his skill level and stat output for fantasy purposes.
I really doubt that, for it to happen Schneider would have to perform poorly, and Luongo would have to be playing at a much better level than Schneider. In short Schneider is going to be gett the most games in Vancouver, unless he comes down due to injury.
Outside of that little tidbit I agree with you for the most part. Only thing different would be that while Luongo has dropped on my draft list, it isn't by a significant amount, due to said things you mentioned. I'm pretty confident Luongo will land on his feet, and thus still has a great deal of value.
