This guy is a character guy to say the least, he's mature beyond his years and is willing to improve constantly. He has been working on various thing throughout his career with the Leafs and one of the problems he had this year is we think he got too big in the offseason and it slowed him down too much. If you guys can make him shed some weight and improve his skating, he's quite the defensive force.

By the way, I suggest watching his hit on Malkin over and over. Might make some of you guys look at some of the potential that Schenn offers.

I hope the best for Schenn and the Philly organization and hopefully JVR is the type of guy the Leafs need.
Great post!
