Those offering Schenn and JVR up in almost any offer aren't think with their brains, they're thinking with some perverse need to win this year at the cost of longterm viability. If there was a single trade that guaranteed us a trip to the Finals right now, of course I make it. Newsflash: There isn't a trade out there that does that.

In Couturier, Schenn, Simmonds, Voracek, JVR, Giroux, Read we have a young core that will only get better over the next 2-4 years. No reason to break that up for an upgrade that doesn't make us that much more dangerous this season. If we were talking Weber, Suter, Chara, etc, that's one thing, but I'm not breaking up that forward core for Jack Johnson, Luke Schenn, etc and I'm definitely not going to sell low on Schenn and JVR to do it (which is exactly what we'd be doing). Couturier is untouchable, but JVR and Schenn are added to almost every trade based solely on a 50 game span to start this season. Insane.
