Bad for LA. First, I'll try to be objective as possible and not consider the value each player has to his team, just their overall general value.
So how valuable is Schenn? Enough to make it in favor of Philly.
Now considering value to team.
Bernier>Gagne (Kings love Bernier and want their two young goalies to compete, Gagne "needs" to be traded because of the cap)
Coburn=Johnson (always seems to be some tension w/ Johnson and LA, Coburn is more expensive this year but will probably be cheaper the following)
Carter>Brown (small better, Brown is LA's captain, LA already has a #1 highly paid center, Carter will be getting a substantial raise next year, Carter is a better player by a reasonable margin)
Schenn is LA's best prospect, fits well with the team LA is building with a lot of physical and talented players, he's a center and they don't have a 2nd line center at this point and no other prospects or young guys who fit the bill.
No way LA does this.
