No. As long as there isn't a window to negotiate, then not a chance. I'm real hesitant on dealing Schenn because he really has the potential to be a game breaker. And game breakers are really tough to come by. Yes, Giroux is a game breaker. However, we don't know if Couturier is a game breaker yet and we also don't know if JVR is a game breaker yet.
With regards to the future, personally, I'd rather a pairing of JVR - Schenn; Simmonds - Giroux; Couturier - Voracek. That's three very fine pairings for the future and three very solid lines to build around.
I think the Flyers have other assets available to use in a trade other than Schenn. If the Flyers look to move Schenn, the only defenseman I'd want would be Doughty. I wouldn't deal Schenn in a package for either Weber or Suter, especially when they are pending free agents.
