Exactly. Schenn, for all the Toronto hype, is going to be a great one-dimensional defenseman at best, and shutdown d's aren't generally gamebreakers. Kaberle's a very good defenseman, but he's shown that he's not a lynchpin player for a playoff team.

I don't see how the offer is outrageous for a potential elite franchise player. You can always find the Kaberles, and yes, Schenns in FA. Hell, Komisarek's there this summer. The franchise players never make it that far, and if they did, they certainly wouldn't be interested in the current incarnation of the Leafs.
