Leaf fan here,

Good deal for both sides. You need Schenn, we need JVR. Our depth is on D, yours is forwards. JVR has higher upside as Schenn will never be offensive but JVR, as you know, also has injury concerns.

I liked Luke, good attitude and should love playing with Brayden. But he does make EXTREMELY dumb mistakes but is still young and learning. I remember the game when he pretended he was an offensive dman and tried skating circles around everyone, turned it over and they scored on the breakaway in overtime. But if he learns to simplify his game, he'll be hard to score against. Playing in RW's style was definitely bad for him and I was interested to see how he'd do under Carlysle.
