If a defenseman is traded, it's Schenn, or Komisarek (can't see anyone taking him).
Well lets start with the basics. What has JVR shown that would make us want to trade Schenn for? #2 pick? He had one good series against the Bruins and all of a sudden everyone falls in love with him.
Where would be be on our team? 3rd line left wing? Isn't Kule the 3rd line left wing? He wouldn't get any powerplay time or SH time, so he'd get about 12 minutes a game.
You'd trade Schenn for someone who plays 12 minutes a game? What are you basing potential off of? JVR just like Schenn has had all the oppurtunites to succeed, but never did. D men take longer to develop than forwards as well.
