Again though, I'm not GM. As an outside fan, I look at Toronto and Schenn and I'm wary. I defer to Holmgren on this one. If he trades JVR for Schenn though, I'm hoping he gets some picks back to be sure.
If it happens, I'll wait and see how things turn out. If they turn out great, then that just adds to Toronto's hilarious history with first rounders. If it goes badly, I wouldn't be shocked at all.
They didn't reach for him, it was Stamkos at #1 and after him the four defensemen in some order: Doughty, Pietrangelo, Bogosian and Schenn. That was the consensus before the Draft, Schenn isn't Hickey.
