WJC is overrated and if someone tries to make a case here for Schenn due to this, then someone could just as well say had the Oilers allowed Paajarvi to play for Sweden he could have gone beasting.

But what tips the scale is Oilers need a potential top 2 line center prospect BAD. LA can use a potential top 2 line winger.

It is a fit.
Schenn will be a beast and everyone already wants him on their team, even if he still is in juniors.

Look at his brother. His brother helped his little brother become the player he is. Even now he must be helping him grow to be an NHL'er.

Many teams would be happy to take a risk and trade a roster player now for a future stud. I'm sure many have offered.

I would be shocked if DL would move him until he's had another year to "season" and show what his developmental timeline might be.

Also: Schenn is the property of the Kings - bwahahahaha
