They didn't pick Schenn out of spite. Its pretty well known amongst the LA fan base that, unless they were overwhelmed with a huge offer, they were gonna pick Schenn. He's a Lombardi type player. Had nothing to do with irritating Burke, though I'm sure the fact that Burke was clearly irritated pleased Dean even more.

I have no doubt Burke tried hard to make a deal with the Kings to move up and get Schenn. That look on his face when LA picked says as much. He was disappointed, and that's the way life goes sometimes.

The bottomline is Schenn belongs to the Kings now. I know alot of Leaf fans are upset they didn't get him, but this is fantasy land stuff. Its over, time to move on.
