The point made above, I think, is that if a playoff team is looking to bolster their defense with a short-term, playoff-tested addition, there are options out there that are both better and cheaper. If the Flyers make a move for Schenn, it isn't to bolster their squad right now, it's to improve the balance in their system going forward.
Hard to say. I'd take the Leaf group over the Flyers, even with Pronger in the lineup. I'm sure you feel the same way about the Flyers group.

Schenn would slot into your top four now, and in the future. If you're going for short-term only, you're better off with a guy like Gill.
