That said, I would much rather play JVR in the playoffs than Schenn. Last night was a beautiful example of what Schenn can do when on his game. He manhandled Malkin several times, and helped shut him down both games. I like JVR, but I don't like his contract, his concussion, or his lack of a physical game given his size. Unless Coutourier and Kadri (along with something from Toronto) were added, I think we'd need to see at least a first coming back to the Leafs. It'd be a late first, anyway.
MacArthur (or something else)
You're giving up some size and potential, and getting potential and scoring back.
Wouldn't mind seeing Kadri playing for flyers
As long as Wilson is the coach Kadri has no chance in Toronto
