He may not wind up as flashy as Ryan with all the points, but I'd be willing to be that he'll be the more complete player in the end.
I don't doubt Schenn's quality--that's why I think he's a viable centerpiece for a 24 year old winger with 100+ goals in his career.

I don't have a problem giving up a 2012 1st with Schenn for Ryan, because with Ryan, that pick is likely to be, at worst, in the 20-25.

But this is sort of beside the point--if the Flyers were not willing to give up the auxiliary assets with Schenn to get Ryan, I can understand that. The article above suggests that Schenn was a non-starter for Ryan. As I said before, that makes little sense to me.
