If you are going by numerous scouting reports JVR's ceiling is not higher then Schenn's. They are basically the same. Schenn's ceiling is usually listed as "Big minutes physical shut down defenseman." Being a shutdown defenseman is basically as high as the ceiling goes.

Plus many people need to keep in mind that Schenn is a defenseman and they need to hold him to the standards of defenseman development. Look at all the elite defenders today and how many of them were playing at that level at 22? (How good was Chara at 22? Or Shea Weber? Chris Pronger? Duncan Keith?) It is much longer learning curve. By these standards JVR's set back would be more alarming then Schenn's since this is very common for young defenders. Look at what happened to Doughty and Myers.

I don't like the idea of giving up JVR but if you want talent you have to get it and JVR for Schenn is a fair deal as far as talent goes.
