Also, you're thinking who should go based on the short term?
The only thing your right about is that a team in the middle of a rebuild shouldn't be looking to trade a 5th overall pick from a few years ago.
However, if your arguement against trading Komisarek is that we can't get a decent return, then your should be wanting to trade Schenn because he'll get an excellent return. They're very similar players at this point in their careers. At this point, you have to explore both options and see which one makes more sense.
If Schenn can get you Rick Nash and the best Komisarek can get you is Scott Gomez, we're trading Luke Schenn. If Luke Schenn can only get you a guy like Devin Setoguchi, and Komisarek can get you a guy like Milan Michalek, we're trading Komisarek. Reality is somewhere in between there.
