Schenn will have a cap hit of 3 million this season. Its the reason I want Laich. You know what you are going to get with him. We dont know what we are going to get with Schenn yet. Escpecially defensively which is what we need.
I'm more and more inclined to go with this thought as well. Schenn might be ready to play in the NHL, but it's a lot more questionable if he is ready to play as a 3M dollar guy.

Laich would be great on this team, no doubt. I said this in one of all the threads about the off season, can't remember which right now, if we keep Schenn up we likely can add one more forward in the 2.5-3M range, but if we give Schenn one year in the AHL we could perhaps add Laich and someone else for around 1.5M (I'd like Eaves... should be a little cheaper I think as well). That still leaves money for a replacement for O'Donnell on defense.
