Leafs might recall Korbinian Holzer from the AHL and trade a defenceman very soon

I know none of them are defensive defenseman, but take a look at that giveaway takeaway ratio. Luke Schenn has definitely improved that from last season. Not only that look at his numbers. That is pretty impressive for a guy who doesn't even have pp time. My point is that all defenseman goes through slump. Luke Schenn I think he's gonna blossom at mid 20's. The problem with leaf nation is that they want to see every player doing good and if not, there a whipping boy. Schenn a defensive defenseman so it takes time for him to develop just like any player. If burke trade schenn unless for a legit 1 centre, it is going to be his biggest mistake ever.
What are the other players avg. ice time per game though? I bet most of them are playing 5-10 mins a game more than Schenn.
