If Burke actually pulled off Coturier for L.Schenn I'd be ecstatic. I can't imagine the Flyers would be interested though, I'm pretty sure they value him quite a bit more than L. Schenn.

But just imagine having him and Colbourne rounding out our centre depth for the next like... decade possibly. Two huge guys (6'5 and 6'4) with great hands, passing, vision - just all around offensive skill.

...you think JVR is a 40 point player? Maybe right at this moment, but his ceiling is clearly much higher. Burkie is going to look at the big picture when evaluating potential trade targets, in the same way that Holmgren isn't going to look at a snapshot of Schenn's season and determine he's just a bottom pairing D-man with no offensive game and an average albeit very physical defensive game.
