So the Flyers give up a player who could potentially be as good as Bobby Ryan and a decent defenseman for a Bobby Ryan and a slightly better defenseman.
Even if Schenn ends up playing like garbage for the rest of his career, this trade does nothing to improve the Flyer's problems on defense. Coburn hasn't been playing poorly.
And what line would they put Ryan on anyway? Do they risk taking Hartnell off the Giroux line? Ryan Briere Read/Voracek?
